Simple grains yield rich breads that range from the mystically light to the substantially chewy. These breads offer incontestable food value and flavor; they will satisfy and delight those sensitive to nutritional concerns. The very act of bread baking itself provides a welcome diversion from the computer screen or office -- and a gratifying result, no matter one's other occupations! Two sisters, whose family has operated a mill for two generations producing stone-ground flours, bring these recipes from the family and neighbors in West Virginia. Here are more than 180 recipes for a multitude of breads, sweet rolls, international grain dishes, and desserts. Each recipe is explained in thorough detail for a novice as well as an experienced baker. Skyhorse Publishing, along with our Good Books and Arcade imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of cookbooks, including books on juicing, grilling, baking, frying, home brewing and winemaking, slow cookers, and cast iron cooking. We’ve been successful with books on gluten-free cooking, vegetarian and vegan cooking, paleo, raw foods, and more. Our list includes French cooking, Swedish cooking, Austrian and German cooking, Cajun cooking, as well as books on jerky, canning and preserving, peanut butter, meatballs, oil and vinegar, bone broth, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
