Authentic multiethnic breads from the New York City bakery with a mission | {{Book Review}} hot Bread Kitchen

At first glance Hot Bread Kitchen may look like many other bakeries. Multigrain sandwich loaves, sourdough batards, baguettes, and Parker House rolls line the glass case up front in the small shop. But so, too, do sweet Mexican conchas, rich m’smen flatbreads, mini bialys sporting a filling of caramelized onion, and chewy Indian naan. In fact, the breads are as diverse as the women who bake them—because the recipes come from their homelands.
Hot Bread Kitchen is a bakery that employs and empowers immigrant women, providing them with the skills to succeed in the culinary industry. The tasty corollary of this social enterprise is a line of authentic breads you won’t find anywhere else. Featured in some of New York City’s best restaurants and carried in dozens of retail outlets across the country, these ethnic gems can now be made at home with The Hot Bread Kitchen Cookbook.

*My Review*
As a Foodie, Cajun & Culinary Arts major, I absolutely LOVE this book. 
 I love the stories of the people and the international flavor of the book are reason to head straight for the kitchen and cook/bake. 
The recipes in thos book are all pretty basicfor bread. The pictures are gorgeous and make me want to make  just about every one of these breads. I love all the tips and hints for bread baking that were included, too.
If you love bread, then you will want to check out the Hot Bread Kitchen cookbook. I'm pretty sure you'll be wanting to add these new bread recipes to your baking list after looking though this cookbook.
