An Essential Book for the Home of a Bread-Maker.

This book comes from a man many consider to be the best bread baker in the United States. Chad Robertson thinks bread is the foundation of a meal, the center of daily life, and each loaf tells the story of the baker who shaped it.  

Inside you'll find clear instructions and hundreds of step-by-step photos put you by Chad's side as he shows you how to make exceptional and elemental bread using just flour, water, and salt. Chad then explains how it all works and shows how many variations from this master recipe lead to wonderfully diverse breads. Soon you will be able to create your own unique and personal loaf. Also included are more than 30 sweet and savory recipes using the day-old bread.
