Summary, etc.:
"75 Italian(ish) recipes for baking, using, and eating with bread, from the owner of the bakery Bread & Salt"-- Provided by publisher.
Easton and McCart write about bread: how to make it and how to eat it at every stage of its life cycle. Their focus is on cucina povera-- poverty cooking-- a bread-centric approach to meal prep that has falling out of favor in American kitchens. The book provides a mostly Italian celebration of bread from fresh-baked to stale, from slice to crumbs. The goal is to make the most of each loaf. -- adapted from inside front cover
