A long loaf is a delight to bake and to eat. Making and baking bread at home this way is versatile – sometimes to be enjoyed slowly throughout the week, other times as a bounteous center of the table. The bread can be a celebration of old and new grains being grown and baked with intention, amplified by the extraordinary flavors to be found. The methods used are easier, more intuitive, and more adaptable than you might think. This book is an invitation to make bread for your own pleasure, to stimulate your senses through the experience, and to produce an ideal version of daily bread for your loved ones.
