  • Bagels

    • rwarner on October 25, 2018

      This is a fantastic recipe which makes beautiful sourdough bagels. I found the bagel shaping directions in America's Test Kitchen "Bread Illustrated" to be very helpful.

      This is one of my favorite recipes for bagels! It makes a tasty filling, bagel that I find more satisfying then the non-levain equivalent.

  • Olive-onion bread sticks

    • twarner on February 22, 2014

      These are ridiculously good!

  • Sourdough onion rings

    • loehmichen on June 28, 2015

      Delicious though a bit time consuming . They are excellent garnishes for just about anything! left overs reheat nicely on a sheet pan preheated in oven

  • Sourdough pancakes

    • twoyolks on January 20, 2019

      These have a nice sour flavor without it being too strong. I liked them but not enough over other recipes to go through the added effort of using a sourdough starter.

  • Walnut bread

    • katy1126 on June 05, 2017

      This is by far one of the most tasty toasting breads I have ever made. Best of all it is absolutely loaded with walnuts!

Reviews about Recipes in this Book

  • Hamburger buns

    • Lisa Is Cooking

      These might be worth baking for the brioche aroma from the oven alone. But, who am I kidding? They were easily the most delicious things to sandwich a burger I've encountered.

  • Rosemary olive oil bread

    • Lisa Is Cooking

      ...the flavor from the rosemary was evident but not too strong. The tender texture of the crumb and the crispness of the crust were due to the olive oil. This made me excited about bread again.
