A pioneer of the at-home milling movement, Adam Leonti has written the definitive guide that modernizes this old-world tradition for home cooks and amateur breadheads. With step-by-step photographs and comprehensive instructions to guide you through each technique, plus guidance on all aspects of home milling, including sourcing wheat or flour and choosing the right equipment for your kitchen, Flour Lab is a master class at making better-tasting and more nutritious food.
Thirty-five recipes for bread, pasta, pizza, cake, and pastry serve as a practical base, and Leonti provides dozens of delicious recipes to tailor them to your taste, including:
