In celebration of this momentous occasion, dear readers, I am happy to share with you a fantastic recipe for 100% Whole Wheat Bread. I’m also pleased to announce my very first VV Giveaway!!
The recipe in this post comes from one of my all-time favorite cookbooks – packed with vintage recipes, of course! It’s the Secrets of Jesuit Breadmaking, and you can win this cookbook from Vintage Victuals! The Jesuits have a special place in my heart, as I am, in fact, the product of a Jesuit college education. You may recognize this book from earlier posts on Vintage Victuals.
This is a great resource full of tried-and-true bread recipes that one Jesuit priest gathered from Jesuits around the world through the course of his career as a Jesuit cook. It is also chock full of great breadmaking tips and cute stories about the origins and stories that each recipe brings to the writer’s mind. It reminds me a lot of what I love best about cooking and baking – the stories and families that come together around food.
