The book is also sparse on recipes, though the author emphasizes the point that once you understand the fundamental principles of breadmaking, you can go in almost infinite directions with it.
This book made me feel like I was in high school chemistry class, except that it was much more interesting. I tried the basic recipe from the book this week, and while I did over bake the loaves a bit I’m not used to preheating the oven so high and forgot to turn it down when I put the loaves inthe taste and texture are really good.
The entire chapter is meticulously researched, including references and citations, by Buehler, who has a PhD in Chemistry. Michael Swain rated it really liked it Jun 29, A good edition to the bread bakers library but the gold standard is still Jeffrey Hammelman’s book.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Sciencr is an enjoyable and useful book if you’re the kind of baker who likes to experiment, work with ingredient ratios instead of set recipes, and I started reading it and immediately thought: Open Preview See a Problem? Highly recommended by Karen, our sourdough bread expert!
Andrea rated it really liked it Jan 13, I really want to go to her community bread night in Chapel Hill. Preview — Bread Science by Emily Buehler.
Toward the end of her studies, she interned at the National Academy of Sciences, which helped her realize she did not want a career in a lab. Buehler takes very cute pictures and has helpful drawings.
This is not a cookbook, as such. After graduating, Emily became a bread baker, which led to her first book, Bread Science.

Sandra rated it really liked it May 08, I will admit that the first couple chapters on the chemistry part did make my head spin a bit. Some of it is a bit hard to get through, especially if chemistry isn’t your strong point, but I picked up some valuable information anyway.
Simple descriptions of why and how bread-making works, with tips and a few recipes. An enthusiastic high school chemistry teacher, however, led Emily to study chemistry in college, and she continued through her PhD.

I’ve read countless articles and online postings about baking bread, but there has still been something missing. This is going to be really help. Then it delves into the science with chemical reactions described and explained, and how different ingredients and reactions affect the dough either positively or negatively. Thanks for telling us about the problem. I have never been the science-y, math type.
It has a bibliography that lists the sources for the research cited, an appendix of units and conversions, and a glossary of terms. Camsi Roy rated it liked it Dec 15,
