Part travelogue, part epicurean manifesto, this lushly photographed collection of 90 recipes inspired by Europe's home bakers is a treasure.

His intimate photographs take us on a mouthwatering journey into farmhouse kitchens and small bakeries where bread has been made for centuries. Interspersed with stories and images, the recipes feature helpful instructions and innovations that contemporary bakers will love, along with delectable pictures of the finished loaves.show more
