Secrets of a Jewish Baker

"Secrets of a Jewish Baker" by George Greenstein has lots of information about his life in a Jewish bakery, lots of hard to find recipes.

This isn't a good source of sourdough information and the sourdough recipes I've tried haven't been all that good (which could be a matter of taste). However, several of the recipes in this book, when converted to sourdough, are just stunning and were consistent best sellers at our bakery.

A number of friends swear by this book, and a friend who grew up in New York raved about the Korn Bread I made from a recipe in this book.

HIGHLY recommended to people who miss the breads of their youth from Jewish bakeries in New York. isbn.nu can point you to a 1993 paperback and a 2007 revised edition.
