About the Author

BONNIE OHARA is a self-taught sourdough bread baker who has been perfecting her craft since 2010. With a background in literature and art, she comes to baking with a visual style and runs her company with a heart for storytelling. When she’s not baking sourdoughs for Alchemy Bread in her 1920s bungalow, you can find her bicycling the trails with her three children, picking up veggies and fruit at the farmers market, or checking out cookbooks and picture books at the library.

Review

“I can truly say that this is the only bread-making book that I have read from beginning to end, like a story. Bonnie takes her pupils by the hand and immerses them in a comprehensive conversation about the bread-making journey. With gentle encouragement, the reader is guided through bite-sized, digestible chunks of simple methodology and techniques. The baker is able to learn as they go. Bonnie masterfully invites the new baker to walk before they can run, starting with straightforward yeasted doughs, then adding inclusions, building ferments, and finally arriving at the recipe for her own bakery’s prized Alchemy Sourdough. Bonnie's book is enabling and easy-to-understand. It’s a must-have for anyone embarking on the enriching and therapeutic endeavor of making good daily bread. How I wish I had begun my journey with this book!”―Tami Isaacs Pearce, owner and bread baker, Karma Bread Bakehouse

“It’s so nice to have a bread book that’s genuine in its commitment to help you succeed! Bonnie’s line in the book that says, “what I hope to do with this book is take you seriously from the start,” is exactly what every home baker wants and needs to hear. Her message is clear: Get back to basics, use your instincts, relish the small victories, make the bread how you want to eat it, create something good, share it. Real bread is attainable. Bread Baking for Beginners is an inviting framework for successful bread-making, and Bonnie is a truly generous host who invites you into her kitchen.”―Jess Wagoner, bread baker and production manager at A&J King Artisan Bakers

“What a sweet joy I found in this book! Bread is the deepest symbol of community, and it is hard to find someone who has baked a more beautiful life than Bonnie O'hara. Here is a knowledgeable teacher, a tender cheerleader, and a joyful friend to teach you how to take the first steps―from building your first yeasted dough to playing with starters. The daunting task of making your own bread seems approachable and warm here, as Bonnie easily mixes anecdotes, bakers’ formulas, pictures of her kids laughing, terminology, and beautiful golden loaves within these pages. More than just for beginners, this book lays the foundation for anyone to become a great bread-maker."―Rose Lawrence, founder of Red Bread and pastry chef at Rustic Canyon

“From her self-made bakery at her home in California to the expertly-written pages of her book, Bonnie shows you how to get started―and succeed at―baking healthy, nutritious bread from your own home. As you make your way through her inspirational and approachable book, don't be surprised if the urge to create your very own home bakery starts to take root!”―Maurizio Leo, baker and founder of ThePerfectLoaf.com

“An uncomplicated explanation of a complicated subject. Clear and encouraging, this wonderful book will inspire confidence in those ready to bake their own bread at home.”―Rachel Frost, senior bread baker at Della Fattoria

5.0 out of 5 stars THE Bread Book
By Stephanie on September 18, 2022
This book is great. Like, really great. I was afraid to try baking bread for a long time, but the more I looked at the ingredients lists at the grocery store, the more I realized I would have to try it. The current prices of the better breads are what finally pushed to me to do it. I bought this book and it's been a blessing. The author is all about bread. She owns a baking shop, and gives a little backstory about getting there in the beginning of her book. The rest of the text is things you'll need, common mistakes to avoid, and recipe after recipe in order of increasing difficulty. You start out with the most basic (but delicious) bread the doesn't even involve kneading (more of a fold), and you continue to work your way out to fancy enriched sourdough. There's one for pizza dough I use nearly weekly, and it's towards the beginning of your bread baking journey. There's also an amazing brioche, and most of the recipes can be modified to make buns instead of a loaf. If you've never made bread, but really want to take control of what you and your family eat (and save a lot of money) get yourself this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for a beginner!
By C. on October 5, 2022
I am blown away by this book. I have had it for a few days and have made two things from the first chapter of no-knead recipes. The shape wasn’t all quite there (my error), but the flavor was! They were so good! I found it easy to follow and I was happy with the results. I would definitely suggest making sure you have the correct equipment. I can only hope that she writes another book!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book will be your best friend!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on January 26, 2020
I came across this book just over a year ago. I’ve since baked most of the breads in the book, and can honestly say I never thought I’d be able to make bread as wonderful as I am now. Bonnie makes you feel like you’re best friends as she skilfully walks you through the art of bread making. From the first no-knead loaf, right down to her Alchemy Sourdough, her steps are so easy to follow that you can’t fail.
I’ve loved this book so much that I’ve bought it (and additional bread accessories) as gifts for my most loved friends and family.
If you have any hesitations in buying this book, I can wholeheartedly recommend you let them go and jump in with both feet!
