  • A hearth loaf

    • IvyManning on February 15, 2016

      Made the Hearth Loaf #4 and I must say, I love the encouraging tone and emphasis on learning a skill instead of a recipe that this book takes. The bread turned out well and was actually a lot easier to handle and make than the Tartine version, though they are similar.

  • Your first sourdough loaf

    • Melanie on August 30, 2014

      This recipe worked pretty well, the sourdough rose enough for me to make my first successful sourdough loaf. Good texture and taste. However, I didn't like the flavour of the oil around the loaf from the tin.

Reviews about this book

  • The Kitchn

    There's a feeling of whimsy and joy in this book that makes baking bread feel like something fun to do on a Saturday rather than something to be done perfectly.

  • David Lebovitz

    ...rather than just a book filled with recipes, Josey Baker Bread coaxes you into the process, starting you off with a very simple bread that calls for yeast...“Your First Loaf of Bread”...

  • New York Times

    It’s designed for a beginning baker but more-experienced hands can also profit from his approach, which produces more deeply flavored loaves. The chilling calls for patience...

Publishers Text

This is the first true entry-level bread-baking cookbook, from Josey Baker (that's his real name!), a former science teacher turned San Francisco baking sensation. Josey Baker Bread combines step-by-step lessons with more than 100 photographs, offering easy-to-follow guidance for aspiring bakers. Recipes start with the basic formula for making bread— requiring little more than flour, water, time, and a pan—and build in depth and detail as the user progresses to more complex loaves, including Josey's cult favorite Dark Mountain Rye. With chapters dedicated to pizza, pocketbreads, and treats, Josey's playful, encouraging tone makes for a fun read full of great advice for bakers of all levels.
