If you like to settle down to read cookbooks, we invite you to this fascinating story of bread. Plump loaves, shiny-brown rolls and luscious coffee breads will pop out of the pages. You'll sniff in imagination the most enchanting of all fragrances, that of yeast bread leaving the oven. You'll remember the crunch of the knife as it cuts through the golden crust, and you'll almost taste the wheaty goodness of bread slices spread with butter.
You will marvel at the wonderful, faster-to-make breads that have been emerging from test kitchens--and country kitchens-- as some of you recall Grandmother's friendly kitchen and the irresistible smell of her beautiful breads. Our new simplified versions retain the old flavors, good looks and aroma.
