favorite book friday

i checked this book out from the library this week, and i am loving it! reinhart delves into the history of bread in the united states, the science behind fermenting loaves, and some great recipes. if you are a bread baker of nerdy persuasion who likes to know the why behind everything- you must read this book. so good!

in related news, have you seen the footage of bob moore, founder and owner of bob's red mill, announcing that he's giving his company to his employees? in an age of natural, whole food companies selling out to major conglomerates, my heart was warmed by this story. that it is the people behind a company that makes the company. love it.

Have you read his book Crust and Crumb? I loved that one. It started me on my way to good sourdough bread.
