Over Hedh's career he has collected an expansive list of his favorite recipes, including everything from savory breads such as sourdough, baguettes, and pita bread to sweeter fare like English muffins, French chocolate bread, and apple cake. In this beautifully illustrated book, Hedh shares his methods with easy-to-follow recipes and useful tips on how to turn your kitchen into your own bakery. To get that stone oven taste, Hedh recommends one buy a two-inch-thick stone slab to bake bread on, versus a baking tray.
