Beyond Basics with Natural Yeast
With allergies to commercial yeast on the rise, natural yeast is the easy and healthy solution to baking all the foods you love. Brush up on your techniques with Melissa Richardson's newest book, Beyond Basics with Natural Yeast, with mouthwatering recipes like Soft Pretzel Rolls, Honey Whole Wheat Bread, and Lemon Chiffon Cake. Say goodbye to commercial yeast, and hello to a healthier body!
My thoughts: I love to make bread and bake, but I haven't done a whole lot of baking with natural yeast. So, when I saw this cookbook, I thought it would be fun to give it a go!
While I love making bread, my family seems to go through seasons where we don't eat a whole lot of it, which is probably why I haven't tried to get a natural yeast started going, with it being a bit of a commitment. After receiving this book though, I think it will be fun to get a starter going and begin making breads, cakes, crackers, and breakfast foods. I love that this book has a variety! And, it does a wonderful job of breaking things down, so one understands the science behind natural yeast. The photos are eye catching and helpful, the recipes diverse, and the topic fun. I highly recommend this cookbook!
I received a copy of this book from Cedar Fort in exchange for my honest review.
