Review

Almost a hundred mouth-watering recipes utilizing spices, fruits and seasonal vegetables provide even the most seasoned bread baker with a host of new ideas and exciting recipes. Try the Tomato Bread with Fresh Basil, the Pumpkin Spice Swirls, or the sweet, low-fat Roasted Chestnut Bread: all are unusual and exceptional. -- Midwest Book Review

Format: Paperback
I got this book for my birthday and thought, "Oh, well, a cookbook for the coffee table." After a couple of weeks, however, I started to skim through it out of boredom. I could not put it down. The recipes themselves are enough to make this a book well worth having (although they are somewhat complicated and can be intimidating for the beginning bread baker) but the photographs are mouth-watering as well. And the text that accompanies each section of the book, both in the introductions to the seasons and the introductions to each recipe, are essays unto themselves, worthy of note. If the passing of the seasons has meaning for you, for whatever reason, and you like to bake or just eat bread, you NEED this cookbook

One of the - initially - most unasuming bread baking recipe collections. Once I started to bake breads from this book, it was hard to try a new recipe, and not to repeat the old one: every single one was a clear favorite (for a week, until a new one appearred!). I have a nice collection of bread baking books , but this one holds a very special place. Superb, and so tasty!

This book has a recipe for a focaccia with an olive pesto that is better than books of nothing but focaccia recipes that I've owned previously. A wildfire destroyed our home, including cook books, and this has been the only cookbook we've replaced because I couldn't remember the pesto recipe. Admittedly, I don't make the bread exactly as she writes it (for instance, using a dozen kalamata olives instead of a can of black olives), but with book in hand, it all came back.

I've had this cookbook for years and have made only 2 things from it, both of which were delicious....but then I forgot about it until recently cleaning my kitchen. Since it is organized by month, I resolved to make at least one *bread* for the month every month this year (2013). So far, I am on the third one....and ALL have turned out PERFECT. I am a fairly experienced, though not prolific, bread baker, and I find the organization, diversity, and accuracy of recipes to make this the perfect book for either an advanced baker or a beginner! Too bad it's no longer in print; it would be high on my gift-giving list!
