A meditative look at Shabbat preparations. . . . Carefully laying out each step of the baking process, from mixing ingredients to braiding the loaves, the book evokes Shabbat itself, conveying the beauty of taking time to rest and appreciate loved ones. . . . Intertwining the tactile rituals of baking with the religious and cultural heft of Shabbat, a contemplative paean to challah.
