The fastest path to the slow way of artisinal bread,
By A Customer
This review is from: Bread Alone: Bold Fresh Loaves from Your Own Hands (Hardcover)
An excellent book which will help everyone from the novice bread maker to the accomplished baker arrive at an excellent loaf. IMHO, some of the griping in other reviews on this site are unwarrented: my copy has held together just fine, thank you (1st ed, 3rd printing); I really appreciate the fact that the recipes are repetitive...I don't like to have to flip all through the book searching for each step's recipe...I enjoy the efficiency of having all the information in one place for each bread, even though it is repeated elsewhere; I find the book to be very clear on the difference between the various steps and "starters".
Bake and enjoy!
