Baking By Hand
Andy & Jackie King
Todays lifestyle consists of using a lot of technology. It even has a prevalent place in our kitchens, microwaves, stand mixers, blenders and so on. And there is no doubt that all of these improve the function of the kitchen I still think that at times they rob us of simple pleasures.
If time permits there is nothing like standing a the counter, gazing out a window and kneading bread, it's such a textural thing and really very relaxing. I feel the same way about dishes.
Andy and Jackie Kings new book Baking By Hand allows a look into the world of two of the best bread makes in the north east, the book offers tips and instructions for producing a top quality product by hand. One hundred recipes ensures that there is something for everyone.
The book showcases some of their best loved recipes for breads such as sourdough, ciabattas, and multi grain breads. They also offer recipes for stunning pastries and accompaniments like curd, jam fillings and pickles.
This book would delight any home cook or professional.The photos are stunning and the writing clear and cornice. I give Baking By Hand two thumbs up!
