Bread and beer come together in this tender little book. A warm autumn afternoon is a perfect opportunity to reflect on the fundamentals of existence: earth, time, light, bread, celebration, and ultimately death and decay. They all come together in this concise, cheerful book that is both reflection and step by step recipe — in this case, for a delicious whole wheat bread made with beer. In many ways, it is really a recipe for how to live.
