How it rolls

In the past week-or-so, my friends and family have given me not one, but two bread cookbooks. Are they trying to tell me something, perhaps?

Did you happen to make a throwaway remark sometime? That's the usual reason for that kind of thing.

I suspect it is an inevitable coincidence from so many people knowing that I like food books just generally.

It is a more noticeable one than most, however, because my mother has always been a baker. She baked all our bread growing up. In the past few years, my sister has really embraced baking. As for me, I have done quick breads, but have yet to touch yeast.

Which books did you get? Thank you for the one you gave me :)

The River Cottage Bread book, and (as a wedding present for both of us), Artisanal Bread in Five Minutes a Day.

good start for yeast bread
Well, mine (Artisan Bread in 5 min.) was really a very belated wedding gift - because I've had a lot of fun with it and because I know you value really fresh bread. As long as you have some of the dough in the fridge, you can have a small loaf in about an hour and pan bread in 5-10 minutes. (And take a look at the authors' website - several people have posted about using British ingredients.)

Re: good start for yeast bread
Thank you for the reminder! Your very thoughtful package arrived the day before we left for holiday travel, so I had forgotten it was for both of us. (In other words, C. should be doing as much bread-baking as I, ideally!)
