Dunaway grew up in a family of bread bakers, and shortly after a friend encouraged her to sell her breads, she found herself making 1000 loaves a week in her home kitchen. Today she and her husband are the owners of Buona Forchetta Hand Made Breads in Los Angeles, a professional bakery where her wonderful loaves are still made by hand. She prefers the texture of bread made with little or no kneading, and she likes loaves with a high ratio of crust to crumb (the inside of a loaf), e.g., baguettes; long, thin filoncini; and ladder-shaped fougasse. Illustrated with Dunaway's own charming line drawings, her book provides recipes for dozens of breads, including sweet loaves, and pizzas, along with many ways for using leftovers, from bread salads to bread puddings. There are a number of good artisan bread books available, but with its user-friendly recipes and readable text, this is recommended for most baking collections.
