When life gets challenging, simple pleasures and timeless traditions can help us manage. Bread Therapy is a love letter to the art of making real bread.

Praise for Bread Therapy: The Mindful Art of Baking Bread

  • It is a rare pleasure to spend time in the company of such a thoughtful, intelligent and compassionate food writer. Pauline Beaumont explains how making bread in all its many forms can help your mental and physical health, as well as provide you with something wholesome and delicious to enjoy and share. Bread Therapy is a book that deserves to be read from cover to cover, but it ultimately belongs in the kitchen: whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned expert, you'll find the recipes immaculately explained, with infinite attention to detail, and inspiring ideas for the creative bread maker. An exciting new voice in the world of food writing.

  • Pauline Beaumont's Bread Therapy is a reassuring, generous book that answers the big question of why we bake bread rather than buy and shows the healing power that crafting and baking a loaf offers us. It's a heartfelt, enlightening book for the baker in your family, your friends, and especially the baker within you.

  • Pauline Beaumont writes persuasively about the power of something as simple as breadmaking to help us cope with life's stresses and disappointments. In her gentle explanations, age-old wisdom informs modern psychotherapeutic practice and the traditional craft of baking real bread at home emerges as both metaphor and metier. Her belief that 'the final gift of breadmaking is to spread the word, for you to express your care for others through bread and, in doing this, inspire others' shines through a book that may well change lives.

  • We love this book as it sums up exactly how we feel about bread. Bread is like a small animal; it needs feeding, resting and quite a lot of love to get it to feel right. Caring for it gives you a huge buzz. Bread also has the ability to care for you and making bread is such a simple and pure way of boosting mental wellbeing. Pauline's book captures the magic of this equation beautifully.

  • I think this was written with me in mind.

  • I could talk to you all day, it's such a pleasure - I am really inspired.

  • Her brilliant book, which has made me want to don a pinny and head to the kitchen, explains the pros of home-baked bread and demystifies the process. - You, Mail on Sunday
