(Lahey, Jim) Jim Lahey has received two James Beard Awards and is the author of My Bread and My Pizza. Founded in 1994, Sullivan Street Bakery is renowned for its outstanding bread, which graces the tables of New York’s most celebrated restaurants. The bread at Sullivan Street Bakery, crackling brown on the outside and light and aromatic on the inside, is inspired by the dark, crusty loaves Lahey discovered in Rome. In The Sullivan Street Bakery Cookbook (W. W. Norton & Company) Lahey outlines his no-fuss system for making sourdough at home. Applying his Italian-inspired method to his repertoire of pizzas, pastries, egg dishes, and café classics, The Sullivan Street Bakery Cookbook delivers the flavors of a bakery Ruth Reichl once called “a church of bread.”
