Underground Airwaves – Baking Baguettes with Sam Fromartz

Sam-FromartzIf you are interested in reading a new food book, look no further than In Search of the Perfect Loaf: A Home Baker’s Odyssey by Sam Fromartz.

In the book, Sam takes us on a journey around the world where he works with some of the best bakers.  He also talks about some of his accomplishments as an amateur baker, including baking for a dinner hosted by local food maven Alice Waters.

Along with the many stories, Sam includes several recipes with detailed instructions that highlight the breads contained in that chapter.  It is a captivating and inspiring read. Sam was in Portland to give a reading at Powell’s Books when I got the chance to talk with him.  On the podcast, he tells a story about a trip to France, talks about the book, and explains some of what it takes to make good bread.  The story and interview were recorded at KBOO Community Radio.
