What bread book should I buy?

Saskia Ghirotti By Saskia Ghirotti Published on June 21, 2016

I am an avid bread baker. I make all of my own bread at home and have been doing this for many years. Contrary to what many people think, bread making is not a laborous process and is extremely gratifying. In one weekend I often manage to make enough bread to last 5 to 6 weeks and I wouldn't know what I would do without my homemade bread.

Are you interested in baking your own bread for you family? Don't know where to start? Here is a list of my favorite bread books that will help anyone begin making bread or improve their bread making skills.

1. This is my favorite bread book. It taught me so much about bread making and helped me perfect my bread making skills. Without this book I would not have the skills that I have today. For anyone who wants to learn a simple method to bread making, definitely get this recipe book.
