I love bread. I also love this book! So far, I've tried recipes for 100% whole wheat sandwich bread (pictured above), and CHOCOLATE BREAD. Wow. Let me tell you, chocolate bread is not for the faint of heart.
The premise behind the book involves creating a really high-moisture dough (no kneading!), that can then be stored long-term, almost like a sourdough starter. This dough, however, doesn't require the maintenance that sourdough would. It's pretty sweet.
If you get the book, you may also want to buy a pizza peel and a baking stone. You need them for many of the recipes in the book (not the ones I made!).
Check out lovely Jenna Lou's blog for a much prettier picture of a boule made from the same premise.
