Rustic European Breads from Your Bread Machine.

Linda West Eckhardt and Diana Collingwood Butts

Much has changed in twenty years since we wrote the original groundbreaking books on making bread in the bread machine,  but the sheer versatility of the bread machine is unrivaled, and the new tricks you can pull off by using the bread machine to mix and proof dough before cooking it on a stone, is still just stupendous.  Enjoy.

Rustic European Breads from your Bread Machine is available in book stores everywhere as well as from Amazon.

Send me a self-addressed stamped envelope and autograph instructions and I’d be happy to send you an autograph to personalize your book.

Keep on baking.  It’s fun and it’s good for you.Rustic European Breads 2nd edition cover art by linda eckhardt
