Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

    I made this to serve with Christmas dinner. The year before I had used another recipe. If you are not a pro, be sure you have a dough scraper because the dough is very sticky and Reinhart has you do most of the kneading by hand. I ended up with 2 very large loaves. I froze the baked bread following his directions which worked fine. After defrosting, he suggests reheating the bread in the oven. I did this but if I make it again, I prefer the bread at room temp.
