Bread Revolution {Book Review}

Peter Reinhart, author of Bread Revolution, has always been a leader in the bread movement. In Bread Revolution, he explores the cutting-edge developments in bread baking, with fifty recipes and techniques that use sprouted and whole grains, as well as heirloom flours. More and more people are delving in to making real food from scratch and Bread Revolution is here to help.

If you are a real food junkie or you enjoy experimenting in baking, Bread Revolution a book you want to have in your library.

You will drool when you see the gorgeous photographs throughout this book. Even the cover inspires you to don your apron and pull some flour from the pantry. Bread Revolution offers recipes and techniques any homesteader can follow. The book provides the detailed guidance you need to become a master baker. Want to try gluten-free baking? There are eight recipes that include cookies, crackers, and of course, bread. Want to go beyond the loaf? Bread Revolution has recipes for pretzels, croissants, and even biscotti.

I love to bake, and bread is no exception, so I was thrilled to be offered a copy to review. It was different than I expected. A lot of the recipes have to do with starters or sprouted grains, which I am not really familiar with. It turns out that different isn’t bad! I haven’t worked with sprouting my own grains, so I am thrilled to try a lot of these recipes! I know that sprouting your grains is so good for you, I just have been a bit intimidated. This book makes it seem so doable!

Peter Reinhart is widely acknowledged as one of the world’s leading authorities on bread.

Why sprout grains?

Sprouted grain breads are a healthier alternative to wheat bread and certainly pack more nutritional punch than white bread. Traditional breads can be very hard to break down in the body, sometimes leading people to believe they have a gluten intolerance. Sprouted grain breads have already been broken down, allowing nutrients to be absorbed right into the body instead of being lost during digestion. In addition to being easier to digest, these breads contain more antioxidants as well as additional vitamins B and C.

  1. This post could not have come at a better time! My husband and I are doing a 30-Day no sugar plan. We are not allowed any grains or fruit for the first twelve days, either. I’ve been reading labels like crazy, and still have not found a bread in the supermarket that does not contain sugar, so I’ll need to make our bread from scratch, beginning on Friday. I’m a huge fan of sprouted grains, and I’ve always wanted to learn how to make bread with them! Thank you so much for this post!

  2. I just discovered sprouted flours and have successfully made two loaves using it. I would love to add this to my cookbook collection and to cook up some of the yummy breads.
