This book does not contain many true recipes for a bread maker. It has one chapter devoted to bread maker recipes, 31 in the chapter, but not as many "everyday" type breads like I was hoping for. The other chapters contain "variations" on how to use the recipes in a machine, but I haven't tried any of those yet. The recipes from the machine chapter I tried were all dry and kind of tasteless, not impressive at all, really. I'm still new at this, and I could have done something wrong, but, who knows. I will keep trying but I was just hoping the breads would be soft, moist in a way, usable for sandwiches, etc...I ended up using the breads for making breadcrumbs and stuffing since they were dry and stale-like in texture. They were perfect for that!

This is the best recipe book I own. So many different recipes that you wouldn't think of trying, but all are fantastic that we've tried so far! And you don't have to have a bread machine to make most of them, but they have those too...so many options! If you love bread and trying different kinds, you will love this book.

The book offered on the US Amazon uses volume instead of weight. This is a very inaccurate way of baking. Things will come out too dry or too soggy because a cup of flour can be too densely packed or too fluffy. Weighing will always be more consistent, so get baking books from the UK and buy yourself a decent inexpensive digital scale.

I was hoping to see more recipes for non-wheat breads - however the few that are there allow me to make changes to them with non-wheat flours.

Lay-flat binding for the definitive book on bread, which can be made either in a bread machine or by hand. Gluten, wheat and yeast-free breads and recipes for those on restricted diets pack a book filled with color photos of finished products.
