$20
Bread Science is a practical guide to bread-making that explores both the steps of the process (such as mixing dough, using preferments and sourdough starter, shaping, and baking) and the science behind it. The science is presented in detail but in language suitable for non-scientists. With over 250 photos and drawings, references, a bibliography, a glossary, and an index, Bread Science makes bread-making approachable and fun. This book is a complement to any bread recipe book and a must for the home baker. Read more.

One summer, two young women head west on their bicycles from Cape May, New Jersey. In three months on the road, they battle 14% grade hills, tornado-force winds, and 110 degree heat. They are sheltered by everyone from nuns to cowboys. They swim in the Missouri River, climb the Rocky Mountains, and cross the Continental Divide–three times. And eventually, they reach the Pacific.

Emily hoped to find peace and happiness away from the clutter of life. With nothing to do but ride her bike all day, life would be simpler… or would it? Read more.

Non-US Orders
—Economy shipping is USPS first class international.
—Most economy books arrive within 2 to 3 weeks, except to certain countries (I’m lookin’ at you, Italy and Mexico) and at the holidays.
—The USPS told me that they no longer track first class packages in the United States, but there is a customs number that might be trackable in the destination country. (This number does sometimes work to track on the USPS website.)
—Expedited shipping is USPS priority international.
—Expedited books arrive in 6 to 10 business days, although there is no guarantee. (We’ve only once had an expedited book held up, and it was during the holidays.)
—Expedited books include a tracking number. The USPS website tracks the book to the port where it leaves the United States. After that, you may be able to track the book with your own postal service.
—One or two books fit in an expedited flat-rate box. The price then increases for each additional book.
—The rate varies with destination. (Note: Canada is cheaper.) If the actual shipping is much cheaper than the shipping charged, we will refund the difference. We can give more accurate shipping costs, particularly for large orders, if you contact us.
—We have never had an international order not arrive, but a few took 6+ weeks, so we wait 8 weeks before considering the book lost.
—We are truly sorry that the international shipping is so high. You can lower shipping costs by buying multiple books and selling them to your friends! In April 2016, 8 books to Sweden with bubble wrap cost $66.50 (we could also fit ten books without bubble wrap), and 14 books with bubble wrap cost $86.95. To Australia, the 8 books (or 10 without bubble wrap) cost $75.95, and the 14 cost $95.95. Let us know if you are interested in rates for your country.
Bread Science is available at Barbara-Jo’s Books to Cooks in Vancouver.
