Celebration Breads

Recipes, Tales, and Traditions

Overview

From the publisher

Every culture celebrates with food. And no food has a greater influence on culture, history, or religion than bread. From the unleavened matzo of Passover to the German stollen of Christmas, from the British hot cross buns baked on Good Friday to the Russian kolach baked for any special occasion, bread in its many forms brings people together, linking traditions and generations.

Bread is Betsy Oppenneer’s passion. A renowned cooking teacher, she has spent most of her life baking, and much of it traveling. Celebration Breads is a collection of more than 75 sweet and savory breads from around the world, from the Americas and Western Europe to Africa and Russia. No matter what the occasion, Celebration Breads has the perfect recipe for you.

Each recipe is laid out in painstaking detail, with instructions for making the bread by hand, with a heavy-duty mixer, using a food processor, and by using a bread machine (if possible). Oppenneer also provides comprehensive chapters on bread-baking ingredients, equipment, techniques, and sources.

With more than 70 black-and-white line drawings by John Burgoyne (known for his work for Cook’s Illustrated magazine), Celebration Breads is an invaluable addition to the bread-baking bookshelf.
