Book Review: Baking By Hand

If you’re looking to eat healthier and want to eat less store-bought breads and doughs, look no further than Baking By Hand by Andy and Jackie King. In Baking By Hand, professionally-trained bakers and authors of this fantastic book feature their top 100 recipes which include everything from sourdough to ciabatta to a multigrain loaf. Recipes are easy to follow with step-by-step instructions so even the newest of bakers will feel like pros.

While not a completely meatless cookbook (with just a small section about making sandwiches), most of the recipes are vegetarian or even vegan. Vegans can enjoy many recipes such as the Poached Garlic Sourdough and Toasted Walnut Sourdough, the Marinated Olive Sourdough, the French Baguettes, plus many more.

From baguettes to oatmeal-cinnamon-raisin loaves to apple pies, this book has something for everyone at any time of the day. Readers can also enjoy a delicious homemade grape jelly recipe or they can learn how to custom-make their own pickles. This book has a little something for everyone!

With the holidays nearing, this could also be the perfect gift idea for the baker in your life! Purchase your copy of Baking By Hand today.
