The Bread Builders: Hearth Loaves and Masonry Ovens


We searched high and low for books that would help us attain the dream of creating a DIY wood-burning oven that would lead to hearty, rustic at-home baking. While we found many resources for backyard building and more, for most city-dwellers the definitive Bread Builders book is the guide you want––it will help you to achieve some of the effects of a masonry oven, using an ordinary gas or electric oven. Or build your own in the backyard.

Written by Daniel Wing, a man who has studied artisanal breads from every angle, and Alan Scott, this book is not only a DIY but also features important bakers from around the country and information on making your own healthful breads at home.
