A great beginners guide to bread making. Good photographs to show how to knead the dough. I recently purchased two copies of this book to give to two different young people who are grandchildren of two of my friends. Both youth had decided that they wanted to learn to bake bread, and I felt that this book was the perfect starter.

I have tried many times to make bread and despite following the recipes and advice offered it always turns out heavy and dry. Saw his add for this book and thought, "here is a reference from a real pro to help me out." And.......no. All it does is tell you how wonderful it is to make your own bread and how it is relaxing and spiritually healing and blah blah blah and then tells you the same processes you can find in a thousand other places for free.

Oh, and it does tell you about lots of neat gadgets you've probably never seen or heard of that you can get so you will feel like a pro when people come over and say, "what's that?"

I don't know what to tell you other than there are no secrets revealed in here to turn you into a bread master and youtube is free.

Didn't know I was a "Breadhead" until I read the book. A very nice, short primer on bread. Fr. Garramone gives 3 basic bread recipes and then shows options for each. Learn the basic and have a world of bread at your finger tips. The fundamentals o0f what to do to make bread and how to avoid problems are easy to understand.

I read the entire book in one sitting and feel much better about making bread. Serves as a "CliffsNotes" on bread making. Now the next thing to do is order a few tools I don't have and start baking.

Well worth the money and time.

Excellent choice for the beginning bread head. The first portion of the book explains the basics of baking. The balance of the text is devoted to basic recipes and variations for a variety of finished products. Father Dominic is #1 in my book!

The three basic recipes in this book work great every time. They are relatively simple, two of the three don't contain any milk products which is great for someone who is lactose sensitive. And the spiral bound means the book will stay open and lie flat on the counter.
