From the Back Cover
The baking tradition is one of the richest and most varied aspects of Ireland’s culinary heritage. From earliest times making bread has been an integral part of daily life in almost every home and it is still a living tradition.
In The Ballymaloe Bread Book Tim Allen shares his enthusiasm for bread baking with more than a hundred recipes for every conceivable type of bread, from simple scones and soda bread (not forgetting the famous Ballymaloe Brown Yeast Bread!) to pizza and focaccia and some exotic ethnic breads.
And being the good teacher that he is, everything is eminently practical with nothing left to chance or guesswork.
No matter how slight or extensive your cooking experience, The Ballymaloe Bread Book will become your constant kitchen companion.
Tim Allen, together with his wife Darina, owns, manages, and teaches at the famous Ballymaloe Cookery School in Shanagarry, County Cork, Ireland. Darina is the author of more than a dozen books and presenter of the Simply Delicious television series. Tim specializes in bread baking and this is his first book.
