52 Loaves by William Alexander, 339 pages, read by Tracy, on 01/24/2012

52 LoavesI can think of a lot worse things to be obsessed with than baking the perfect loaf of bread. William Alexander spent a year baking, growing wheat, touring yeast factories and flour mills and finally training a monk to bake¬† peasant bread. I can relate to some of his frustration having baked a few duds myself.¬† An enjoyable read for anyone who loves bread, baking and eating. He tries to answer the question “What is it about bread?”
