A professional guide to breads and enriched doughs

Quality bread –alongside its appropriate starter and proofing time– is the real protagonist of this book, whose main objective is to help understand the different aspects to bear in mind regarding the selection of flours, the ferments, the kneading, forming and baking processes of bread, as well as to detail, in a clear way, how to prepare a large number of specialties.


A varied, exhaustive catalog

The book is divided into a very extensive introduction in which the main ingredients of bread are studied and another part devoted to the basic preparation stages, particularly focusing on the different types of sourdough starters and natural leavening agents. The chapter on breads is the most ambitious, and displays a large number of step-by-step preparations which range from classic breads, such as Galician bread, baguette or peasant’s bread, to those which belong to a new generation of particularly healthy ones, such as organic, spelt, tritordeum or Kamut bread. Italian specialties play a special role in this book, and are a reflection of the experience which the author himself gained in that country. Focaccia, ciabatta Bolognese, pane all’oglio and even panettone are fully explained in the pages of this book, with step-by-step photographs which will surely help reveal their own essence.

Enriched doughs, such as those of croissant, ensaïmada or brioche, complete the wide range of recipes, altogether making up more than 40 different creations (25 bread and 15 enriched dough recipes). The book also contains a didactic section devoted to the preparation of bread without professional equipment. Finally, the book is complemented by a group of videos which will help understand in detail the forming, scoring and marking techniques which characterize each dough contained in it.
