Year-end honors for "52 Loaves"

I'm very grateful for some year-end honors accorded my memoir, 52 Loaves.

The book has been named to both the Kirkus Reviews and Booklist Top Food Books of 2010, and an excerpt has been included in Best Food Writing of 2010. (Of course, if you're only going to buy one food book this season...IT'S THE ONE WITH ALL MY CHAPTERS (not an excerpt), comprendez?


  1. Bill, the honors are well-deserved. I recalled your stories many times throughout my bread year. Congratulations and may your loaves always rise.

  2. Hey Chas, nice to hear from you, and thanks for the kind words. How's your own baking coming along?

  3. Hi Bill. Just wanted to post a quick but enthusiastic 'thank you' for taking the time to put your experiences in the garden and the kitchen to page. Since first hearing your interview on the Diane Rehm show while on my way to a Thanksgiving dinner I have quickly made my way through both of your books and at the time of this writing letting my 3rd loaf autolyse. Can't wait for springtime so I can try my hand at a wild yeast levain and plant myself a modest garden. I never had any idea that baking bread could be so intriguing, rewarding and enjoyable. Again, my most sincere thanks!
