Books about Baking

Baking is never a solitary endeavor. While I consider myself a “self taught baker” I know I wouldn’t be a baker at all if it weren’t for the people who shared their knowledge through books and videos. Here are just a few of my very favorites.

Bread Baking for Beginners by Bonnie O’Hara of Alchemy Bread-honestly this is a book I would have written..it is simple and detailed with lots of help and beautiful pictures and it is VERY affordable. If you like social media her Instagram is also a wealth of encouragement, inspiration, and information.

Peter Reinhart’s Artisan Breads Everyday by Peter Reinhart-this was the first “serious” baking book I ever received and I have baked so many recipes from it and still use it 7 years later. Many books now only give weights for ingredients, but this one give both so if you haven’t bought a scale yet, I recommend starting with this book.
