All About Bread

Bread is forgiving and resilient, so it's a good place to begin if you're new to baking. And if you already love to bake, it's a good place to hone your skills, for, as many a professional bread baker can attest, the quest for truly great bread is addictive and consuming. Bread baking is not difficult—let's face it, people were making bread and cooking it on rocks 2,000 years ago, using unrefined flour and unpredictable yeast. As always, an understanding of the ingredients and how they work together will shed light on a subject that can be mysterious.
