BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – A comprehensive bread book for home bakers, The Bread Collection: Artisan Baking for the Bread Enthusiast by Brian Hart Hoffman hits retail stores nationwide on Sept. 1 and is already available for preorder online. The Bread Collection is the fourth full-length title from Hart Hoffman, author and editor-in-chief of Bake from Scratch magazine.
This essential bread book arrives just in time for National Biscuit Month in September. In his first full-feature bread-focused publication, Hart Hoffman, who served as one of the biscuit competition judges during the 2018 Charleston Wine & Food Festival, includes not one biscuit recipe but three: detailed instructions for the perfect Laminated Biscuits, classic Angel Biscuits and a sweeter variety with Sweet Potato Biscuits.
“The recipes found in The Bread Collection aren’t just ones we’ve perfected in our test kitchen but ones that I bake in my own kitchen almost every weekend,” said Hart Hoffman. “As an avid baker, I have personally selected these recipes not only for how tasty the end products are but how much fun it is to prepare them.”
With more than 130 recipes spanning 200 pages, The Bread Collection features step-by-step visuals and a wealth of information on the art and technique of bread baking. Learn to prepare sourdough, make the perfect scone and bake up sweet breads in a cast-iron skillet. From Hot Cross Buns to a Maple Bacon Cheddar Pickle Loaf, this comprehensive cookbook is complete with traditional favorites as well as trendy twists on classic recipes.
“Quite simply, these are my all-time favorite bread recipes collected for home bakers to use and enjoy,” said Hart Hoffman. “But this is also a reference book that equips them with the knowledge and skills to master any bread project.”
The Bread Collection’s vivid photos, crisp, clean design and thick, matte paper stock will remind readers of Hart Hoffman’s other titles, including The Coupe and Bake from Scratch: Artisan Recipes for the Home Baker, volumes one and two. Following the same protocol as his previous books and each issue of Bake from Scratch magazine, Hart Hoffman includes a photo with every single recipe in The Bread Collection, giving home bakers a visual guide.
