The aim of this book is not to give you millions of different bread recipes. Understanding the principles of bread making and mastering fundamental techniques is key to bake bread like a German. Therefore, this book focuses on the bread-making process and ingredients. Thus enabling you to bake bread without blindly following recipes. Topics that this book covers in-depth are:

  • Which grains can be used to bake bread and why?
  • What is the composition and difference between various types of flour?
  • How can I judge the quality of my flour at home?
  • What are the main bread ingredients and what is their technological function in bread dough?
  • What are the different steps of bread-making and what is their purpose?
  • What is the purpose of pre-ferments? How do I prepare and use them properly?
  • What is the correct way to incorporate grains, seeds, or nuts into my bread?
  • How do I bake sourdough bread? How do I obtain a starter and how can I control the flavor of my sourdough bread?
  • How can I troubleshoot in case of failure? What to do when things go wrong?

To connect theory and praxis, the book closes with a small bread recipe collection that will enable you to take your theoretical knowledge to the test. I kept the recipes as varied as possible to give you the chance to experience as many different techniques as possible. The bread recipes can be used as a learning tool on how to approach:

  • Simple white bread with and without sourdough
  • Enriched bread, like braided bread
  • Rye bread and mixed rye bread with seeds
  • Spelt bread
  • Laminated bread, like pudding pretzels
  • German lye pretzels
  • Bread rolls
  • Boiled bread, like bagels
