Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Wild rice and onion bread

    • SenseiHeidi on October 14, 2023

      This bread is delicious. The crumb is perfect. Reminds me of the best soft Vienna Bread. 5 people ate a whole loaf with soup for supper. Made vegan buttermilk: 1 tsp vinegar added to enough almond milk to make the required 1/3 cup.

  • Tex-Mex cumin bread

    • SenseiHeidi on October 14, 2023

      Surprisingly mild. Made as written. You can taste the jalapeños but there is very little heat. Definitely take the time to toast the cumin.

  • White bread loaf

    • rionafaith on September 01, 2018

      p. 17 -- Basic white sandwich loaf, though chewier and more flavorful than I expected, I guess due to the extended rising time.

Publishers Text

Reissue! This classic guide to artisanal bread is back with a fresh new look, just in time to take advantage of the recent surge in popularity of at-home baking. As an award-winning baker and member of a religious brotherhood, Peter Reinhart skillfully blends the two aspects of his life in this eloquent guide to creating wonderful bread. More than 30 delicious recipes, from perfect white bread to pumpernickel and corn, will appeal to both the novice and experienced baker.


Reinhart's graceful commentary accompanies readers every step of the way, and illustrates how the artistry of baking, especially using the slow-rise method, is a metaphor for a purposeful life driven by service and charity. Cookies, sticky buns, stromboli, pizza crust, and the world's greatest brownies are some of the delectable dividend recipes included.
