From the bestselling author of My Bread: A clear, illustrated guide to making sourdough and the Italian-inspired café dishes from one of Manhattan’s best bakeries.

Founded in 1994, Sullivan Street Bakery is renowned for its outstanding bread, which graces the tables of New York’s most celebrated restaurants. The bread at Sullivan Street Bakery, crackling brown on the outside and light and aromatic on the inside, is inspired by the dark, crusty loaves that James Beard Award–winning baker Jim Lahey discovered in Rome.

Jim builds on the revolutionary no-knead recipe he developed for his first book, My Bread, to outline his no-fuss system for making sourdough at home. Applying his Italian-inspired method to his repertoire of pizzas, pastries, egg dishes, and café classics, The Sullivan Street Bakery Cookbook delivers the flavors of a bakery Ruth Reichl once called “a church of bread.”

Jim Lahey’s innovative no-knead bread recipe ignited a worldwide home-baking revolution when it was first published in the New York Times in 2006. The owner of the Sullivan Street Bakery and the author of My Pizza and The Sullivan Street Bakery Cookbook, Lahey has won two James Beard Awards, including the inaugural Outstanding Baker Award. He lives in New York City.

Unlike some other, very technical bread books, the tone…is warm, encouraging, funny—sometimes even striving for poetic—as much as it is educational…But beyond the purple prose are excellent recipes with exacting instructions.
— Melissa Clark - The New York Times

Jim Lahey is best known for his no-knead method of baking bread. He’s also behind New York’s fantastic Sullivan Street Bakery, where you can get a chickpea-fritter sandwich so good it will make you cry. That recipe is here, as are ones for apple-fennel pizza, brisket braised in black tea, and orange olive-oil cake. But more than anything, the book is a deeper dive into (mostly) no-knead bread-making, this time using sourdough starters.

— Mark Furstenberg, James Beard Award–winning baker and owner of Bread Furst

Little wonder the mastermind behind a book about the food you want to eat every day is by the same guy who’s been teaching us about the bread we want to eat every day. These recipes are simple, accessible, and endlessly pleasing. Jim’s done it again.
— Dan Barber, chef and author of The Third Plate
