A Millennium
Dedication
to the American
Flour Milling
Industry

By Karol Redfern Hamper
with Shelley Odegard

A Romance With Baking, A Millennium Dedication to the American Flour Milling Industry is a lovely coffee table book filled with over 100 commemorative baking recipes, from breads to pastries, cheesecakes to pies. The book is laced throughout with beautiful food and old mill photography. It begins with the ancient and honorable craft of flour milling, from the earliest times to the present, while featuring the history, stories, poetry and lore, from others who share in the majesty and sentiment of wheat and bread and in the romance of baking.

This book is a dedication to the grower of wheat, the miller, and the baker; a reflection and a long overdue recognition of the service and dedication of those people who bring us our daily bread. Come join me in a peek from the present into the romantic past. Come smell the bread baking.
