The Fun of Baking Bread! Bread Recipes for Bread Lovers.

Do you love bread? At first glance, bread may seem like the means to an end (the end being a sandwich). But after baking your own bread, smelling it, and slathering it with butter, you might gain a new appreciation for the fun of baking fresh bread.

Written using clear accessible instructions and 26 creative bread recipes (A-Z) + variations, The Fun of Baking Bread points the way to:

  • Warm, delicious, good-smelling bread
  • Impressing the dinner guests
  • Teaching kids a really cool skill
  • Never needing to buy bagged bread again!

 

We all know that wheat bread is unpopular right now - for some good reasons. Most commercial (bagged) bread is manufactured so quickly (using vigorous mechanical mixing, a LOT of yeast and sugar) that it is hard to digest for many. In this book we will SLOW down our process and SAVOUR the fun of each baby step involved to bake delicious bread.

The Fun of Baking Bread also includes 4 wonderful gluten-free recipes -  including one grain free bread recipe which is a personal favourite of mine.

If this is your first time on Kickstarter, you can find the "rewards" on the right hand side at the top of this page (in the blue boxes). By picking one and signing up, you support my book by pre-buying it - which can help  make it a reality (if I reach my goal! If I don't reach my goal then you won't be charged and there may be no printed book).

Thank you for supporting my creative project!!

I have 4 reward levels set up:

$9 - The Vidalia Bun Level - Full Colour EBook!

$20 - The Baguette Level - A glorious, beautiful,74-page printed guide to bread baking - in full colour, 26 bread recipes (A-Z) + variations, clear instructions & tips!

$45 - The Spelt Bread Level - 2 autographed books!

$115 - The Golden Cheese Puff Level - 2 dozen cheese puffs (gluten-free) & 2 autographed books! (only 12 of these rewards available and just in Canada)

Spelt Bread! This is one of the most delicious loaves in the book - and one of the easiest.

My stated goal of $1,650 CAD is the minimum cost to cover a short run of digitally printed books + binding + shipping. I also have a "stretch" goal of $5,250 CAD: if I blast past my original goal and reach the stretch goal, I will be able to have the books print on an offset printing press and possibly have them perfect bound (smythe sewn).

"Reading this book fills me with a new, more urgent sense of excitement for baking bread – one of those simple yet profound, often-overlooked human activities that can actually change your life if you let it."

– Mikael Krogerus, Writer


"I love the idea of getting in the kitchen with my kids & encouraging them to create so many beautiful breads. Family time and delicious food? Sign me up!” – Julie Cole,Vice-President, Mabel's Labels

"The Fun of Baking Bread takes the guesswork out of the process of baking bread and opens up new possibilities for anyone to try creating healthy and delicious bread. Written with obvious joy and enthusiasm, this book should be on everyone's shelf. Let the culinary adventure begin!"
– Alice Sahagian, Artist
