Bread & Water

- by Dee Hobsbawn-smith

Trade paperback $26.95 - Add to Cart
Reader Reward Price: $24.26

The lyricism of Bread & Water interweaves culinary insights and literary essays to pose fundamental questions about how we live--and how we feed--the larger hungers that motivate our lives.

"When I write of hunger, I am really writing about love and the hunger for it, and warmth and the love of it and the hunger for it . . ." --MFK Fisher
 
When chef and writer dee Hobsbawn-Smith left the city for rural life on a farm in Saskatchewan, she planned to replace cooking and teaching with poetry and prose. But--as begin the best stories--her next adventure didn't quite work that way.
 
Food trickled into her poems, her essays, her fiction. And water poured into her property in both Saskatchewan and Calgary during two devastating floods.
 
Bread & Water uses lyrical prose to examine those two fundamental ingredients, and to probe the essential questions on how to live a life. Hobsbawn-Smith uses food to explore the hungers of the human soul: wilder hungers that loiter beyond cravings for love. She kneads themes of floods and place, grief and loss; the commonalities of refugees and Canadians through common tastes in food; cooking methods, grandmothers and mentors; the politics of local and sustainable food; parenting; male privilege in the restaurant world; and the challenges of aging gracefully.
 
It is an elegant collection that weaves joy into exploring the quotidian in search for larger meaning.

Trade paperback $35.99 - Add to Cart
Reader Reward Price: $32.39

Making Artisan Breads in the Bread Machine unlocks all the potential of your bread machine, revealing its surprising versatility and amazing breadth.

Delicious, comforting, and authentic artisan breads are expensive to buy at your grocery store or local bakery. Now you can use your bread machine to make them at home for a fraction of what store-bought breads cost.

Veteran chef, baker, and food writer Michelle Anderson has put dozens of models and sizes of bread machines through their paces and knows better than anyone what a bread machine can do. Would you like a boule or a baguette with your next picnic or brunch? Would the delectable aroma of a just-made ciabatta or focaccia create the perfect atmosphere for your next pasta supper? Michelle shows you the fastest and easiest ways to make these and many other rustic and comforting breads. Her recipes include breads made from start to finish in the bread machine and others that, because of their shape, are started in the bread machine and finished in a regular oven--the latter still a much easier method than starting from scratch on a counter-top.

Rugbrod (Danish rye bread), Irish Soda Bread, San Francisco Sourdough, German Peasant Bread, Pane Siciliano...there's a wide and wondrous world of amazing breads to discover in the pages of this book. You'll even find chapters on cheese breads and herb breads, and an especially delicious one on sweet breads to have for dessert or with your morning coffee.

Millions of people are rediscovering the simple, soul-warming pleasures of freshly made, home-cooked bread. It's not a lot of work at all--if you own a bread machine and have a copy of this incredibly inventive and eminently reliable cookbook.
