The Bread Builders: Hearth Loaves and Masonry Ovens

by Alan Scott, Daniel Wind, and Daniel Wing

Amazon Customer Reviews
“A joy for the serious bread baker amateur, or professional
“The best book on natural leavens I have read

Highly recommended book on masonry ovens and natural leavens which teaches you the basics of baking bread. The bread builders begin with an introduction called looking for Real Bread, Finding Masonry Ovens.

The book goes on to talk about the choice between supermarket bread and naturally fermented hearth bread and why anyone would go to the trouble of building a wood-fired brick oven and bake in it.

Among the material covered the book discusses, bread grains and flours, baking, ovens and bread, preparing to build a masonry oven, materials and tools required, construction and oven management.
