It fueled the empires of Charlemagne and Peter the Great, fed Chaucer’s London, and sustained the first European settlers in America. In The Rye Baker, award-winning cookbook author Stanley Ginsberg presents the surprisingly complex history of a humble grain. Ginsberg gives a taste of history along with over 70 traditional recipes from the immigrant breads we think we know to French pain de seigle, Scandinavian knäckebröds, Russian Borodinsky, Westphalian pumpernickel, Old Milwaukee Rye and many others.
Stanley Ginsberg owns the New York Bakers online specialty shop and runs the popular blog The Rye Baker for baking enthusiasts. He received the IACP Jane Grigson Award for his first book, Inside the Jewish Bakery.
