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 trying something 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 bread is a healthier alternative to wheat bread and certainly pack more nutritional punch than white bread. Traditional bread can be very hard to break down in the body, sometimes leading people to believe they have a gluten intolerance. Sprouted grain bread has 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, this bread contains more antioxidants as well as additional vitamins B and C.
