Bread on the Table – Cookbook Giveaway

Enter to win a copy of Bread on the Table: Recipes for Making and Enjoying Europe’s Most Beloved Breads by David Norman

Bread on the Table: Recipes for Making and Enjoying Europe’s Most Beloved Breads by David Norman, the owner of Austin’s Easy Tiger Bake Shop & Beer Garden, features recipes from the author’s time spent exploring bread traditions throughout Europe and North America.

The book is divided into five chapters: French, Scandinavian, German, Italian, and ending with bread in Central Texas. Besides sharing countless photographs, recipes for each loaf begin each chapter and menu ideas for incorporating those loaves into everyday meals end each chapter.

Recipes include Lefse, Julskinka (Swedish Christmas ham), Birotes salados (Mexican sourdough rolls) and Torta ahogada (sandwich from Guadalajara). What I particularly love is the detail that Norman shares for each recipe that immerses you in the bread-making/recipe process. This year we have a sea of great baking books and many that focus on bread baking and Bread on the Table is one of the standouts.
