A bread baking book from the popular Austin bakery Easy Tiger, featuring bread recipes from around the world, plus bonus menu ideas for incorporating homemade bread in globally inspired meals
Head “doughpuncher” and baker David Norman of Austin’s Easy Tiger is one of the most respected bread bakers in the country, with decades of experience in top bakeries and cooking schools. In his anticipated debut cookbook, Norman explores dozens of recipes from the breadmaking traditions that inspire him most—from the rye breads of France to the saltless ciabattas of Italy to the traditional Christmas loaves of Scandinavia. Norman also offers bonus recipes for traditional foods to accompany these regional specialties, so home bakers can showcase their freshly made breads alongside, for instance, a traditional Swedish breakfast spread, oysters with mignonette, or country pâté. With rigorous, detailed instructions plus showstopping photography, this book will surprise and delight bread bakers of all stripes.
