    PDF In Search of the Perfect Loaf I loved this book Some reviewers seemed to be under the misconception that this is a recipe book It's not though there are a few recipes included This is a book for bread nerds and is as much about grain as it is about bread in the way wine books after often focused on grape varieties than the finished product which makes sense though I don't think I had really thought about the relation of grains and flour and bread in uite that way bef

In Search of the Perfect Loaf

In Search of the Perfect Loaf characters È 100 F fermentation and The result is an informative yet personal account of bread and breadbaking complete with detailed recipes tips and beautiful photographs Entertaining and inspiring this book will be a touchstone for a new generation of bakers and a must read for anyone who wants to take a deeper look at this deceptively ordinary exceptionally delicious staple handmade brea. Breadmaking reuires all the senses the way the dough feels in your hands while kneading the way it looks when it s ready the way bread smells when it s done even the hollow sound a well baked loaf makes The book could have used scratch and sniff paper for the smell of bread It does have some recipes but that s not the point as even the author acknowledges The point of baking is hands on practice Along the way he discusses biodiversity cultural differences journeys around several countries and I even liked the technical details about fermentation and yeast He did explode one of my cherished myths about the air in San Francisco being special to sourdough bread Even if you aren t a baker I m not I think you ll find this an enjoyable read

In Search of the Perfect Loaf characters È 100 An irresistible account of bread bread baking and one home baker’s journey to master his craft In 2009 journalist Samuel Fromartz was offered the assignment of a lifetime to travel to France to work in a boulangerie So began his uest to hone not just his homemade baguette which later beat out professional bakeries to win the Best Baguette of DC but his knowledge of bread f. As an aspiring but supremely crappy baker I ve been interested in books about bread and how to turn my exceptionally dense logs into something edible In Search of the Perfect Loaf A Home Baker s Odyssey by Samuel Fromartz had some very very good parts to it and some that will test your ability to stay awake while reading I was particularly interested in his techniues and recipes especially in the early chapters because I wanted some tidbits I could use in my daily life I was also fascinated by his trip to Berlin and his exploration of his Jewish heritage in the context of that trip I consider myself an academic and I can read about minutia on the daily but some of the later chapters about rare grains made my eyes cross I couldn t focus on them and found myself skimming a bit near the end of the story Still I found the book to be a very worthy use of time and I bookmarked numerous pages to return to when I m feeling brave goodreads instagram twitter blog

In Search of the Perfect Loaf characters È 100 Rom seed to table For the next four years Fromartz traveled across the United States and Europe perfecting his sourdough in California his whole grain rye in Berlin and his country wheat in the South of France Along the way he met historians millers farmers wheat geneticists sourdough biochemists and everyone in between learning about the history of breadmaking the science o. I received a copy of this book through a Goodreads giveaway At first I was a little bit disappointed to see how few recipes were included in this book compared to the bulk of storytelling prose Then as I began reading I began to appreciate the story being told a lot than the recipes anyway The narration is effortless elegant and mildly addictive I was midway through the book before I realized I was hooked The author has a good habit of tricking you into reading things you probably wouldn t normally the biblical begats of wheat for instance or the biogenetics of what exactly gluten is Some of the driest topics in this book turned out to be the subjects that lingered longest in my mind However the actual recipes do leave a lot to be desired in my opinion All measurements are given in weights and while I know this is the accurate way of baking I think lots of home bakers will be thrown by it And that s what this book bills itself as a story of bread making from one home baker to other home bakers Ultimately though I really enjoyed this book I would recommend it to people just beginning to have an interest in baking and to someone who d spent their lives chasing culinary affairs But not to people on diets no not to them
