Bread Therapy: The Mindful Art of Baking Bread

We rated this book:


For quite a while after the pandemic hit, it was nearly impossible to buy flour and yeast. Bread making had a resurgence of popularity, and people who had never made a loaf of bread in their lives suddenly were growing sourdough starter and kneading dough. It turns out there is a really good reason for this, and this book will help you understand why this happened and give you some great recipes as well. Pauline Beaumont is a therapist, and she saw the beauty of bread baking as a tool to help people relieve the stress of living through this pandemic. The real beauty of bread baking is that it slows things down. It takes time. It is physical. It is meditative. When stressed, it’s nice to be able to squeeze a stress ball. Kneading bread dough is that and so much more. Quiet contemplation and learning patience are practically built into the process. And the aromas of rising bread and baking bread are soothing. This book will help readers realize all these helpful tricks and give them several great bread recipes to warm up their lives. A good glossary and suggested readings finish it.
