Over 45 Bread Recipes from 2017

I have here for you over 45 bread recipes from 2017.

Over 45 Bread Recipes #bread #breadrecipes #artisanbread

Usually, at the beginning of each New Year, I'll post my top ten favorite bread recipes for the year. This year, I decided to assemble all of my bakes for the year in a single post, kind of like a virtual bread cookbook. I hope you like it!

This post includes all of the bread recipes I posted in 2017, minus one. Minus one? When I assembled the first list, I counted 47 recipes, but after dividing the recipes into categories, and tossing the original list, I ended up with 46 (poor orphan bread recipe from 2017, whoever you are)!

If you've been following this site for a while, you know how much I love baking bread. It is amazing to me how four simple ingredients, flour, yeast, water, and salt, can result in so many beautiful and varied loaves.

I just read an article declaring that in 2017, bread stopped being a bad word. This declaration makes it official. My favorite quote: "It's a momentous time for bread in America!" Bread is cool again! In the age when a bag of potato chips is often marked as "gluten free," this is pretty significant.

Observations after reading the article: First, I'm really excited to learn that Tartine is actually coming to Los Angeles. Second: I'm pretty much a pioneer of the "bread crawl," in that I used a trip to Portland, Oregon a few years ago to visit every single one of Ken Forkish's restaurants. I'm not a stalker! I was on a "bread crawl!"

Also notable: Nathan Myhrvold (a Microsoft tech guru) and Francisco Migoya (a chef) published the five-volume compendium, Modernist Bread. Price tag: $523.35, and people are buying it and giving it 5 star reviews. Bread. Is. Back.

Here are my breads from 2017, divided into six categories:
