Editorial Reviews

Review

"It's no surprise that Josey Baker's new book is as joyous and inspired as his San Francisco bakery, The Mill, where Josey is using sustainably grown, organic ingredients to bake wholesome and utterly delicious bread. These recipes are vital for any aspiring baker!" - Alice Waters

"...(a) well-illustrated, step-by-step book. It's designed for a beginning baker but more-experienced hands can also profit from his approach, which produces more deeply flavored loaves." - Florence Fabricant, The New York TImes

"A playful tone and style (the author begins the book with q&a with himself), and well-shot, full-color recipe photos make this an enjoyable read while educating home bakers on loaves from whole wheat to sourdough to cornbread. Additional recipes such as the B(L)T pocketbread, the Raddest Homemade Pizza the World Has Ever Known, and Seasonal Fruit Crumble make this a book you'll want to pull from the shelf well after your morning toast." - Publishers Weekly

I started baking bread a few years ago employing the techniques of Artisan Bread in 5-Minutes. While that got me started, I remained somewhat intimidated by the whole process, especially recipes requiring sponge, sourdough starters or preferment, as Josey utilizes in his method. I approached this book with trepidation, a little overwhelmed by all the info and easy flow of options, but I have to say I was thrilled with the result. This bread has an excellent crust, flavor and crumb and slices beautifully for toast...something my previous loaves didn't. I'm sold...so much so I sent my sons to The Mill last time they were in SF in order to bring me a loaf. Sadly (for me) but happily (for Josey) he was getting married that weekend and no loaves available. Not to be deterred, they brought me a piece of cinnamon raisin (brown sugar and butter) toast. Awesome! Thanks to Josey for taking the time to write this book and to share his enthusiastic love of baking. I was intrigued by his journey and I am again inspired. I also like that he offers recipes for many types of grains, such as kamut. I haven't dealt with the metric measurements but have had no problems thus far by following the standard measuring method. I may even start a bread journal. If you buy this book, enjoy your bread making journey!

Excellent book with pictures and step by step instructions. Using a tutorial format, the author supports you through different breads moving from simpler to more complex loaves. I'm an experienced baker, but new to artisan breads. This book is exactly what I was looking for. Here's my first Josey loaf.....

I read an article on the book and decided to make the purchase. Most people say "get a bread maker" but Mr. Baker tells you how to make bread with just a loaf pan and some simple ingredients. I remember my mom never getting breads to rise while using yeast but my first bread from this books recipes was AMAZING! I currently have the 2nd loaf recipe in the fridge waiting until I have some time to back that bad boy!

If you have ever wanted to try baking your own bread, do yourself a favor and order this book. I loved it and the style it was written in and will continue to use it in the future. Bravo Mr. Baker, you have a fan.

He's a super happy guy for discovering his gift of breadmaking and simply wanted to write a book that he wish he had when he started... that makes this a really accessible beginner book that gets you excited to make bread! I have a girlfriend who was obsessed over her sourdough and I thought it was just her, but now I see, that passion is a wonderful force that changes how people view food, one of the most important things in life. And by re-valueing something as basic as bread, one's entire perspective on life can change. So, if you want to change the world, the first step is making your own bread with this book as your guide. It's beautifully crafted, with an adorable bookmark, great photos, and well-written instructions. Fellow bread bakers might be interested in Traditional Breads of the World... which is just an interesting read as it is chockfull of recipes!

Just got the Josey Baker Bread book as a gift to add to my library of bread books. Sometimes a new bread book adds a new idea here or there, and this one does that times four. I can't way to try using pre-ferment the way he does, to experiment with the non-traditional grains he suggests, and make his pocket breads.

An awesome guy, an awesome baker, and a very awesome writer. He managed to write a book that's simultaneously completely approachable for beginners, yet goes deep enough to satisfy even the most advanced. Honestly I can't say enough good things about it.

This book is flat out amazing. Fun, not pretentious, and empowering for the wannabe home bread maker looking to get started. And yes, for the one reviewer who gave it 1 star (there's always gotta be one it seems) it is -NOT- a book for experts. This is made pretty clear by the description " first true entry-level bread-baking cookbook" and also the intro. However, after a few loaves, you really will be creating some high quality, artisan type bread. My co-workers were amazed when I showed up one day with Cinnamon Raisin, Sesame, and Olive loaves (see pic) after only a couple of weeks of owning this book. Josey clearly put a lot of thought into recipes that totally work, but this book also encourages you to experiment in your baking and not worry about the occasional failure. One tip: don't wait too long before trying the 'raddest homemade pizza' recipes! They are now a tradition in our house, and a great way to use up those CSA veggies before they go bad! Great job Mr. Baker, I hope you put out another book someday.

There was a one-star review, which might have been a little extreme, but I agree that this book is absolutely NOT for anyone with even a little experience, In fact, it's not for any over 30.

Heavily peppered with language like "Rad!", "Awesome", "Carry on, Young Baker" etc ... this book may be endearing to a first-timer, but it's a little cutesy, to the point of being strained or even smarmy at times.

The first recipe is called "YOUR FIRST LOAF OF BREAD" so you know it's for inexperienced bakers.

On the plus side, for a first-timer, this is a good book. It goes into a lot of detail, and covers all the common pitfalls.

Also, for a lot of first-timers, this will be the only bread-making book you will ever need. Sandwich loaves, sourdough, desserts, and what looks like a pretty good pizza crust recipe are all in there.

The language and attitude are clearly oriented for teens and twenty-somethings, but if you don't mind being spoken down to, then Bro, it's like totally freakin' awesome, yo!
