Baking and Bakeries, Paperback / softback Book

Baking and Bakeries Paperback / softback

Part of the Shire Library series


A staple food in many diets, bread has been baked since ancient times and is considered a basic necessity by many. "Baking and Bakeries" charts the history of baking, from the ancient breads cooked with grain-paste through the introduction of yeast, to modern day variations.

The author describes the different methods used in baking and the range of tools and machinery used.

Focusing chiefly on the industrial bakeries of the Victorian era, with a final chapter addressing modern day improvements, this book takes a look at the development of the industry as well as the traditions of baking that have survived for centuries.
