Has anybody "Brother Juniper's Bread Book" written by Peter Reinhart? It is from Nov 2005 and has 208 pages, but only 30 recipes. I was a bit
taken aback to find that it is supposedly a mix of religion and bread baking?
Would $20 secondhand be a good price?
The description says:
This classic guide to artisanal bread is back with a fresh new look, just in time to take advantage of the recent surge in popularity of at-home baking.
As an award-winning baker and member of a religious brotherhood, Peter Reinhart skillfully blends the two aspects of his life in this eloquent guide to creating wonderful bread.
More than 30 delicious recipes, from perfect white bread to pumpernickel and corn, will appeal to both the novice and experienced baker.
Reinhart?s graceful commentary accompanies readers every step of the way, and illustrates how the artistry of baking, especially using the slow-rise method, is a metaphor for a purposeful life driven by service and charity.
