Unfortunately, I am a collector, primarily books. When I get on a new hobby, I tend to buy a lot of books on the subject. I won't even tell you how many cookie books I have, I'll just look sad.

When I started my breadmaking "hobby", I created myself a library. This is it so far:

The books I use most:
The Tassajara Bread Book by Edward Espe Brown
Bread by Eric Treuille and Ursula Ferrigno
The River Cottage Bread Handbook by Daniel Stevens
Bernard Clayton's New Complete Book of Breads 30th Anniversary Edition by Bernard Clayton
The Bread Lover's Bread Machine Cookbook by Beth Hensperger
Canada's Best Bread Machine Baking Recipes by Donna Washburn

The books I use occasionally, or just to read:
Classic Sourdoughs: A Home Baker's Handbook (Revised) by Ed Wood and Jean Wood
Artisan Breads at Home by The Culinary Institute of America (CIA)- Mother's Day gift 2011
Baking Artisan Bread by Ciril Hitz

Add to that three 3" ring binders full of printed internet recipes. I'm probably in need of a 12 step program.

  1. I don't think you are in need of a 12 step program. Here's a couple of other suggestions from England. Check out Richard Bertinet's Dough (which you may be a bit advanced for now but pics are gorgeous)and his second book Crust. I'm also a keen follower of Personally I think Jamie Oliver knows nothing about bread - he's Ok on other stuff - but he doesn't claim to be a baker. I love the fact that you have named your cultures. I am now going to go home to christen mine. My recipe is from - but i think in turn, this is the Peter Reinhart one. Happy Baking!
