According to my mailbox and the 25 pounds of flyers I received last week, it is officially Christmas Season. Time to string up the lights (we string ours indoors because I’m scared of heights) and go hunting for a tree (conifer preferred.)
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.
