Confessions of a French Baker: Breadmaking Secrets, Tips, and Recipes by Peter Mayle
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
For this read I going to my local (not French but as best as I can do in Winnipeg) baker to get some bread I can munch on while reading. I love baking, I just have not baked a lot of bread. More of a cookie, muffin, squares baker am I.
The introduction is a quick read and several of the recipes look delicious but I am in grad school in the heat of Manitoba. To cook or to graduate? Yep, another day, another time in my life I will have a home that smells of a French bakery. For now, I shall return the book and head to the local french bakery to be a patisserie snob (I lived in Belgium as a pre-teen, I know my pastries).
Let me know of you try baking any of these delicious looking morsels and how it turned out.
