Baking bread is addictive, especially if you love sandwiches! In my world, sharing a warm, fragrant loaf of bread with someone is about as good as it gets.

Andrea Schmidt’s approach to baking bread is honest and simple. It reads like a good friend gently helping you make sense of a mystery! It’s more than recipes; it inspires one to experience the essence of connecting with their food in a creative way, touching patience, curiosity and experimentation. Baking bread is an art form and and can’t be done from scratch in a mechanical way, so this book coaches and encourages as much as it does instruct. Great for parents wishing to share something fun . . . and a hell of a lot more wholesome than Netflix!

This is NOT just another book about baking bread!

I wrote, designed, photographed, tested, and kickstarted this book during what turned out to be one of the most challenging years of my life. Baking bread is very grounding and healing for me, and so is creativity. Little did I know it would go on to become a success on Kickstarter, and lead to joy and happiness! I put EVERYTHING I have into this book and I hope you will have fun with it!
