Flavored Breads: Recipes from Mark Miller’s Coyote Café is a wonderfully designed, colorful cookbook with unique and tasty bread recipes. Like many bread books published today this cookbook includes directions for both hand made and bread machines.
There are tons of full color photos of the various breads which make it really hard to pass any of them up. In a short time I must have tried half the recipes in this cookbook. Some of my favorites include: Zuni Pepita which is a white flour, wheat flour, cornmeal bread loaded with pumpkin seeds and sage. Another one I dearly love is the Caramelized Onion Bread which is great for grilled cheese sandwiches or roast or corned beef sandwiches.
Besides yeast breads you will find recipes for corn breads, quick breads, muffins, scones, flat breads, crackers, bread sticks, sourdough breads, light pan breads, breakfast breads and an assortment of sweet and savory accompaniments.
This is mostly a book of recipes. While each section has an introduction of a page or two it isn’t really one that you read from cover to cover. It is however one that you spend a lot of time with as I think you will be hard pressed to not want to try every recipe in the book.
This is another one of those books that I highly recommend for everyone’s bread cookbook collection. It is beautifully laid out and with the tons of color photo’s is absolutely mouth watering.
