“Every step of Zoë and Jeff's adventures in bread has been fascinating and delicious for us, the home bread bakers who follow them, but this book might be their most exciting yet because they've incorporated years of readers' questions, problems, and discoveries into every chapter. This is truly the all-you've-ever-wanted-to-know edition. And there are plenty of photographs … at last!” ―Dorie Greenspan, James Beard Award-winning author of Around My French Table and owner of Beurre & Sel cookies
“A fun, easy-to-follow collection for those who aren't afraid to shun baking traditions.” ―Publishers Weekly
“With this revised edition, Herzberg and François continue to perfect their already easy and immensely popular bread-baking method. Essential.” ―Library Journal
