(Bread - French) Poilâne, Lionel. Guide de l'Amateur de Pain

Illus. Pictorial boards. First Edition. Paris: Robert Laffont, 1981.

An elegant first edition of one of Poilâne's seminal works. Lionel Poilâne (1945-2002) took over his father's baking business, which began in 1932, and was a highly successful master of bread when he and his wife were tragically killed in a plane crash. The publisher, Robert Laffont, was known for his publications of works by up-and-coming French chefs during the era of Nouvelle Cuisine. Fine.
