There are lots of wonderful resources out there to help you learn and improve upon your bread baking skills. Here are just a few that I’ve found helpful.
I’ll start by saying that I am not an affiliate for King Arthur Flour, just a huge fan. They produce wonderful products, wonderful recipes, and they inform and teach about bread baking in a down to earth and understandable way. You can find a wealth of information in their blog, within their recipes, and you can even take a class if you live near one of their baking schools in Vermont or Washington. Not close to their schools? Don’t worry. Keep reading. I have a resource for everyone!
Yup, I’m an affiliate for Craftsy. Have you tried Craftsy? Check it out! They offer 100’s of online classes on everything from sewing to drawing to baking. If you look at their offerings for bread classes you will find numerous online classes that you can take at your leisure. There are bread classes offered by various instructors, including King Arthur Flour. Check out King Arthur Flour’s Essentials of Bread Baking class. You can pay per class or sign up for a membership and receive unlimited access to all of their classes. Just try to resist!
If you are interested in whole grain bread baking I strongly encourage you to read the book No More Bricks by Lori Viets. Lori provides 4 master recipes with instructions for numerous variations. Tips and tricks needed to bake successfully with whole grains are well explained. The book is aptly named, and I’ve been enjoying whole grain bread baking for years because of what I’ve learned in this book. It’s a great reference.
I hope I’ve encouraged you to try homemade bread baking. Nothing tastes as good as a fresh loaf of homemade bread straight from your oven. Got questions? Let me know and I’d be pleased to answer them. Happy baking!
