Everyone has heard of Mark Bittman, who is the author of dozens of cookbooks and star of several television cooking shows. So when he publishes a book on bread, most cooks and bakers tend to listen. He is considered an authority, and his book, Bittman Bread: No-Knead Whole Grain Baking for Every Day is sure to turn bakers into believers. Bakers who want to savor the best breads will be surprised that once the advance prep is accomplished, they can turn out beautiful rustic, whole grain loaves.

The book includes beautiful photographs, and the breads that are pictured are not perfect, which is exactly what they will look like when they are made by home bakers. The step-by-step photographs are very helpful and will take new bread bakers through the process of creating amazing bread.

This cookbook isn’t for everyone. The recipes all call for a starter which means that bakers must anticipate baking bread and getting the starter made before making bread. The starter must be fed occasionally, so the process is something that one must be fairly consistent about paying attention to. It is a perfect primer for serious bakers, however, for bakers who are willing to take the time, and the recipes turn out perfectly as long as the instructions are followed.

The results are, of course, amazing, and worth every bit of time spent with the advance prep. Anyone who wants to bake delicious whole-grain bread and is willing to take the time to learn, will appreciate this cookbook.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
