Josey Baker Bread

Get Baking - Make Awesome Bread - Share the Loaves

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


This is the first true entry-level bread-baking cookbook, from Josey Baker (that's his real name!), a former science teacher turned San Francisco baking sensation. Josey Baker Bread combines step-by-step lessons with more than 100 photographs, offering easy-to-follow guidance for aspiring bakers. Recipes start with the basic formula for making bread— requiring little more than flour, water, time, and a pan—and build in depth and detail as the user progresses to more complex loaves, including Josey's cult favorite Dark Mountain Rye. With chapters dedicated to pizza, pocketbreads, and treats, Josey's playful, encouraging tone makes for a fun read full of great advice for bakers of all levels.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 17, 2014 – On weekend mornings, a crowd forms in front of The Mill, a cafe on the up-coming stretch of Divisadero Street in San Francisco. While mentions of the cafe's $4 toast made the rounds on blogs and news sites, stirring up debate about the cost of living in the Bay Area, the line hasn't shortened for the fresh-out-of-the-oven slices. Josey Baker yes, that's his last name leads the Mill team in all things bread and shares step-by-step lessons in creating an array of loaves and other baked goods. A playful tone and style (the author begins the book with q&a with himself), and well-shot, full-color recipe photos make this an enjoyable read while educating home bakers on loaves from whole wheat to sourdough to cornbread. Additional recipes such as the B(L)T pocketbread, the Raddest Homemade Pizza the World Has Ever Known, and Seasonal Fruit Crumble make this a book you'll want to pull from the shelf well after your morning toast.

Customer Reviews

Outstanding read

To think that I hesitated over the $2.99 price! If you are into baking bread, particularly sourdough, and whether you are a complete novice or reasonably experienced, this is a must have book! The explanations of the process are clear and Josey avoids going into too much detail of things like lactobacilli etc. The measurements are usefully given in metric and imperial and there are some good photos of various aspects although this could be improved. Great recipes and made me want to rush off and make dough! The sour dough pizza technique and the recipe look really good. Well done Josey!
