Product Details


“Peter Reinhart writes books that change the way people bake. Bread Revolution is about innovation, possibility, and the future of bread. By exploring new flours and techniques, Peter once again proves that bread is very much alive, versatile, and still evolving. And true to form, he has written a book that will undoubtedly inspire readers to experiment and bake with confidence.”
-Nathan Myhrvold, coauthor of Modernist Cuisine and Modernist Cuisine at Home and author of The Photography of Modernist Cuisine

“There is so much more to baking than buying a bag of white flour and venturing forth. Home bakers and professionals need this book to open their minds to the potential of baking more flavorfully with whole grains and new kinds of flours. With Peter’s terrific book as a guide, you are going to eat better and healthier the sooner you get started.”
-Ken Forkish, author of Flour Water Salt Yeast

“Peter Reinhart’s passion for all things bread and his decades-long role in the American bread revolution make him the perfect teacher. I wholeheartedly embrace his philosophy and greatly admire his ability to not only share the fundamentals of bread, but also to raise awareness about this important bread crossroads, where we can choose to bake with sprouted and artisanal flours of non-commodity grains grown for flavor and nutrition. Imagine that!”
-David Kinch, chef-proprietor of Manresa and author of Manresa
