Highly recommend for those who like to bake their own bread.
With detailed explanations on the process of baking bread, and what various ingredients do, there is a great deal of information to devour in this book.
The instructions are clear and provide some "why" information on some of the steps, so you can use those tips in your own recipes.
Not quite what I expected as I like to use my mill to make my own flour and this book does not really cover that aspect.Published 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
Great book. The instructions are easy to follow and the described methods work beautifully. It's the only bread baking book I will ever need. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Miriam Hafner
Great book but sometimes repetitive = why I have given it 4 instead of 5 stars.
I go back often and read it as a reference for the formulas and the techniques.
Roughly half the book covers the "why" of baking your own bread; it's a long diatribe about the evils of commercial bread baking compared with the wonders of artisanal bread. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Amazon Customer
