The Hot Bread Kitchen Cookbook: Artisanal Baking from Around the World
Found at markets and restaurants across New York City, Hot Bread Kitchen is not only the purveyor of delicious international delicacies, it’s also a bakery employing and empowering immigrant women to turn their local traditions into lucrative business. Now, founder and CEO Jessamyn Waldman Rodriguez has given home cooks a gift by sharing the recipes and stories behind the shop’s addictive loaves. More than simply a guide to bread baking, the Hot Bread Kitchen Cookbook features recipes for savory and sweet accompaniments from the kitchen’s employees, giving voice to women so often kept behind the scenes, and sharing insights for home bakers into the myriad ways we break bread across the globe.
