Recommended Bread Making Books | BREAD MagazineI had no idea I needed more bread cookbooks, but…well…it turns out I do. Actually, it looks like I need at least two more bread cookbooks I already have three of the five recommendations below because authors and bakers keep finding new takes on home bread baking and side note: I might be a borderline cookbook hoarder. Over the years, home bread baking has become my religion. And, at risk of sounding a tad self-help-y, there is something therapeutic about baking loaves of sourdough at home. It is one of the few times each week I can shut out the world and concentrate. In theory, you probably only need 4 or 5 recipes to riff on during your lifetime, but I have never been content with repetition this is coming from someone that has made at least 30 different variations of a chocolate chip cookie within a span of 5 years.

Recommended Bread Making Books
And one type of books in particular: bread making books. In my years of baking bread at home and writing about it, I have collected a sizable collection of books about bread. The collection is still far from complete and lacking especially in books written in other languages than English. Anyway, based on these books, here is my list of some of the greatest bread making books I recommend to all you bread lovers out there. Also, feel free to add your own suggestions I am always looking for new books to add to my shelf.
I'm often asked what books I would recommend for people who are interested in bread baking or looking to get started so I decided to compile a list here. These are all books that I own or have read and gotten something out of. Before I get to the recommendations, let's talk about what you should be looking for in a quality bread book. Some are definitely better than others and you don't want to start off going in the wrong direction with formulas and techniques that are less than desirable. This is the first bread book I started with when I was making my first few loaves and I'm incredibly glad that it was. Hamelman's book may be a little intimidating at first but take comfort in knowing that he's teaching you excellent technique and valuable knowledge. The recipes in this book have been favorites of many home bakers and professionals alike for years.

Every product is independently selected by obsessive editors. Welcome to Reading Lists , comprehensive book guides from the Strategist designed to make you an expert or at least a fascinating dinner-party companion in hyperspecific or newsworthy topics, like North Korea or wine. For our primer on baking cookbooks, we consulted a group of ten pastry chefs and bakers from across the country. We asked each of these pastry chefs and bakers several of whom are cookbook authors themselves to put together a list of their favorite baking cookbooks , and they came back with dozens of recommendations for their most dog-eared reference books, easy-to-follow recipe books for every type of baked good and pastry, and the cookbooks that inspired them to bake in the first place. After combing through their lists, we only included books that were recommended by two or more of the bakers and chefs. Below, nine of the best baking cookbooks for home bakers of every skill level and interest, according to our experts.
