Renowned baking instructor, and author of The Bread Baker s Apprentice, Peter Reinhart explores the cutting-edge developments in bread baking, with fifty recipes and formulas that use sprouted flours, whole and ancient grains, nut and seed flours, alternative flours (such as teff and grape skin), and allergy-friendly and gluten-free approaches. A new generation of bakers and millers are developing innovative flours and baking techniques that are designed to extract the grain s full flavor potential what Reinhart calls the baker s mission. In this lushly photographed primer, Reinhart draws inspiration from these groundbreaking methods to create master recipes and formulas any home baker can follow, including Sprouted Sandwich Rye Bread, Gluten-Free Many-Seed Toasting Bread, and Sprouted Wheat Croissants. In many instances, such as with sprouted flours, preferments aren t necessary because so much of the flavor development occurs during the sprouting phase. For grains that benefit from soakers, bigas, and sourdough starters, Reinhart provides the precise guidance that has made him such a trusted expert in the field. Advanced bakers will relish Reinhart s inventive techniques and exacting scientific explanations, while beginning bakers will rejoice in his demystification of ingredients and methods and all will come away thrilled by bread s new frontier. *Correction to the Sprouted Whole Wheat Bread recipe on page 63: The volume measure of water should be 1 3/4 cups plus 1 tablespoon, not 3 1/4 cups."show more

Review quote

Peter Reinhart writes books that change the way people bake. Bread Revolution is about innovation, possibility, and the future of bread. By exploring new flours and techniques, Peter once again proves that bread is very much alive, versatile, and still evolving. And true to form, he has written a book that will undoubtedly inspire readers to experiment and bake with confidence. -Nathan Myhrvold, coauthor of Modernist Cuisine and Modernist Cuisine at Home and author of The Photography of Modernist Cuisine There is so much more to baking than buying a bag of white flour and venturing forth. Home bakersandprofessionals need this book to open their minds to the potential of baking more flavorfully with whole grains and new kinds of flours. With Peter s terrific book as a guide, you are going to eat better and healthier the sooner you get started. -Ken Forkish, author of Flour Water Salt Yeast Peter Reinhart s passion for all things bread and his decades-long role in the American bread revolution make him the perfect teacher.I wholeheartedly embrace his philosophy and greatly admire his ability to not only share the fundamentals of bread, but also to raise awareness about this important bread crossroads, wherewe can chooseto bake with sprouted and artisanal flours of non-commodity grains grown for flavor and nutrition. Imagine that! -David Kinch, chef-proprietor of Manresa and author ofManresa"show more
