It's time for our second Knead the Book, where I bake a lot of bread from one book and share five recipes here. This week's book is a revised version of the classic The Italian Baker by Carol Field. You might have noted that the title is not The Italian Bread Baker. There are some non-bread recipes in here too, but the vast majority of them are for yeast breads.
Before this book, I hadn't really considered how many Italian breads exist. Sure, there's the standard Italian bread loaf we all know and focaccia and pizza, but when's the last time you baked an Italian corn bread?
