Bagels and Brioche Recipes Needed!

bayoucook Jun 18, 2009 05:49 AM

Still learning to bake, confused by the various recipes for these breads. Does anyone have foolproof recipes for them? There are NO decent bagels to be found here. I wanted to ask for a foolproof sourdough french bread recipe as well, but from my experience there is no such thing. Is there any hope for me, ChowHounds? I'm still working on my resolution to learn to bake! Thanks in advance....

      Do yourself a huge favor and spend the bucks to purchase Peter Reinhart's "The Bread Baker's Apprentice"
      It's on sale at the moment and if you read it (not just try the recipes without first absorbing the first 100 pages) you'll be a better bread maker than you ever thought you could be.
