A new generation of bakers and millers are developing innovative flours and baking techniques that are designed to extract the grainâs full flavor potentialâwhat Reinhart calls âthe bakerâs mission.â In this lushly photographed primer, Reinhart draws inspiration from these groundbreaking methods to create master recipes and formulas any home baker can follow, including Sprouted Sandwich Rye Bread, Gluten-Free Many-Seed Toasting Bread, and Sprouted Wheat Croissants.
In many instances, such as with sprouted flours, preferments arenât necessary because so much of the flavor development occurs during the sprouting phase. For grains that benefit from soakers, bigas, and sourdough starters, Reinhart provides the precise guidance that has made him such a trusted expert in the field. Â
Advanced bakers will relish Reinhartâs inventive techniques and exacting scientific explanations, while beginning bakers will rejoice in his demystification of ingredients and methodsâand all will come away thrilled by breadâs new frontier.
*Correction to the Sprouted Whole Wheat Bread recipe on page 63: The volume measure of water should be 1 Â¾ cups plus 1 tablespoon, not 3 Â¼ cups.
