The authoritative guide to baking that every baker needs in their kitchen, now revised and updated.

'In The Handmade Loaf, Dan gathers together the knowledge he acquired travelling, tasting and photographing his way through northern Europe. He takes the handfuls and pinches and turns them into weights and measures to create recipes that are easy to follow. His descriptions of the countries and their bread offerings are warm, personal and inviting. You really get the sense you're making a loaf passed down from generations which, in essence, is what baking is all about.' - Observer Food Monthly

With more than 75 recipes, from dark crisp rye breads and ricotta breadsticks through to effortless multigrain sourdough, The Handmade Loaf guides you through the stress-free techniques you need to make and bake great breads at home. Made and photographed in kitchens and bakeries across Europe, from Russia through to
the Scottish Highlands, Dan Lepard's ground-breaking methods show you how to get the most flavour and the best texture from sourdough and simple yeast breads with minimal kneading and gentle handling of the dough. Let this classic cookbook guide you to making superb bread at home.
