Wonder bread

Books » Our lists » Wonder bread

Mix it, roll it, bake it, make it.

Australians love bread. Whether it’s pita or sourdough, brioche or damper, naan or roti, bagels or lavash, millions of us eat it every week. And with the steady (a-hem) rise of artisanal offerings (including gluten-free and vegan varieties), it’s no longer a question of wholegrain or white? Sliced or not?

One thing that will never change: when it comes to bread, fresher is always better. And you can’t get much fresher than homemade. Here are some books to help you catch onto the latest wave of home baking, and fill your world with that fresh-baked smell.
