Hi everyone!  I am new here, but am hoping to get your opinion on a project I am working on.  I have been baking for around ten years…sometimes professionally and sometimes on the side. I am now working in the publishing world and am considering putting together a small book of traditional recipes from all around that are approachable to a beginner. I can’t find any books out in the world that are doing such a thing.  Do you know of any books like this—not too intimidating? Do you all think this is an ok idea? Thanks for your opinions!!

and

A World Of Cake which Rose reviewed on her blog

From your description this book came to mind. ‘classic home desserts’ Richard Sax. I bought it recently at a thrift store and I have tried several recipes and been very pleased with the results. Things I like about the book are great pictures, entertaining anecdotes, clear recipes.

A few traditional breads I happen to know of, although they’re probably pretty obvious, are Jewish challah, French baguette, Italian ciabatta.  Of course, any baker would know of those breads, but I just thought I’d put my lame two cents in…

i saw a neat video on youtube last night that I thought I’d share with people. It was old-world style of making bread, from Sicily. It’s done all by hand, and they show you the whole process from the wheat to the table.
