The Laurel's Kitchen Bread Book has long been regarded as a classic because of its clear, detailed explanations, beautiful woodcut illustrations, and great recipes. Home bakers and bakers in small-scale local bakeries refer to it as the bread bible because, even after all these years, The Laurel's Kitchen Bread Book is still the only guide to making light, delicious breads of every sort--entirely from whole-grain flours.
This specially updated guide includes a brand-new chapter on bread machines. Laurel has personally tested a range of machines, evaluating which self-proclaimed whole-wheat-capable breadmakers produce bountiful loaves and which fall flat. The updated volume also includes new recipes specifically designed for machines, so even the beginning machine-user can experiment and create the healthy and flavorful loaves for which Laurel's Kitchen is famous.
