The second half, Slow Fast Food, contains things that can be made in advance when you have time, to enjoy when you don't have time. With more than 200 recipes, both halves offer plenty for the experienced cook as well as the culinary adventurer in search of inspiration.

We know whole grain breads are better for us, but will we actually eat them, much less take time to bake them?
Yes, says beloved baking instructor Peter Reinhart, but only if they are very, very good. So Reinhart, with his decades of experience crafting amazing artisanal breads, has made it his mission to create whole grain breads that are nothing short of incredible.
In this follow-up to his award-winning book The Bread Baker's Apprentice, Reinhart offers groundbreaking methods for making whole grain breads that taste better than any you've ever had. And because his approach is also simpler and less labor intensive than conventional techniques, you'll choose to make and eat these breads. His 55 recipes for whole grain sandwich, hearth and specialty breads, plus bagels, crackers and more, incorporate widely available whole wheat flour as well as other flours and grains such as rye, barley, steel-cut oats, cornmeal and quinoa. Each is so rich with flavor and satisfying texture that white-flour counterparts pale in comparison.
Written in Reinhart's famously clear style and accompanied by inspiring photographs, these recipes were perfected with the help of nearly 350 testers. Introductory chapters provide a tutorial, with step-by-step photographs, of the delayed fermentation method that is at the heart of these recipes, as well as a crash course in baking science, discussions of grains other than wheat, and more. Advanced bakers will relish Reinhart's innovative techniques and exacting scientific explanations, and beginning bakers will rejoice in the ease of baking wholesome breads with such extraordinary flavor.
About the author:
Peter Reinhart is a baking instructor and faculty member at Johnson and Wales University in Charlotte, N.C. He was the co-founder of Brother Juniper's Bakery in Santa Rosa, Calif., and is the author of six books on bread baking, including Brother Juniper's Bread Book, Crust and Crumb, and the 2002 James Beard Cookbook of the Year and IACP Cookbook of the Year, The Bread Baker's Apprentice.

Jams and jellies, chutneys and pickles, smoked and potted meats and cured fish, cordials and alcohols, vegetables in oil, mustards and vinegars … Here are recipes to fill the larder with the most delicious conserves of all kinds. Award-winning food writer Diana Henry has sourced preserves from many different cuisines, from familiar fruit jams to more unusual recipes (such as Georgian plum sauce, rhubarb schnapps and Middle Eastern pickled turnips). There is expert advice and instruction on techniques where necessary, from successful smoking (without expensive equipment) to foolproof jellies. As always Diana's irresistible narrative style makes you feel she is in the kitchen with you, guiding you gently through the recipes and providing fascinating background that ranges from the traditions of wild mushroom picking in Italy, Scandinavia and Russia to Simone de Beauvoir (who compared making jam to capturing time).

It's also a delicious way of making everyday food special and giving friends and family something beautifully homemade. From elderflower in spring and summer tomatoes, to autumn berries and winter vodkas, the recipes in this book will provide you with season after season of wonderful preserves.
