The Mastery and Mystery of Bread Illuminated,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Crust and Crumb: Master Formulas for Serious Bread Bakers (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I purchased Crust & Crumb as another addition to my many cookbooks on bread baking. I sat down to scan my new purchase and the next thing I realized is it was 2:00am and I'd just read the book word for word, cover to cover. I honestly believe I could throw out the majority of my books on bread baking and not ever miss them as long as Crust & Crumb was on my shelf. One telltale sign of the books influence on myself is that my Kitchenaid Mixer is gathering dust as I roll up my sleeves and passionatly begin kneading. Once again connecting to the magic of transforming singular ingredients into a living, united mystery that is more than the sum of it's parts. I feel I've found a kinderd spirit in Brother Peter, and am truly inspired by his knowledge of the history about bread, the fundamental meaning of bread to mankind and the humble passion he has for the process. Brother Peter walks one through the combining of the age old flour, water and salt, and then encourages ones "unbeilf" as grace takes over and a golden, crusty loaf is born. As spacey as these musings sound, the book is concrete, practical and it follows,easy step by step formulas. I try very hard to find the meaning and mystery in the everyday (mundane) events such as baking bread. Brother Peter has done that for us in "Crust & Crumb".
