So I guess it's not too early to publish my Christmas List.
This year is easy. A book. A Bread Book.
OK, it's a 6 volume, 2600 page, $550 bread book, but still...
It's called Modernist Bread: Art and Science. It's also legitimately a tome.
I don't know too much about the author, other than he's a former Microsoft employee who is more than rich enough to nerd out on food. Or in the case of this book, bread.
I read an article on the author / book today and the books seem really interesting. One entire volume is about the farmer-miller-baker supply chain, which I find fascinating.
So if you have any pull with the Big Guy - either Mr. Claus or the Head of Circulation at Regina Public Library - please put in a good word for me.
