Twelve bread 'lessons' from the classic country loaf, to the fundamentals of bread baking: sourdough, slashing, rising, freeform loaves. Forty additional recipes explore other varieties of bread (seeded, whole grain, pizzas, pocketbreads) and baking projects (coffee cake, cookies).
Josey Baker quit his day job as an elementary school science teacher to make his bread baking passion his profession. Josey is now a partner in a very hot bakery/coffeeshop, baking 200 loaves a day at The Mill on Divisidero in San Francisco.
