Shannon's instructions on bread baking, particularly her excellent diagrams on braiding, filling, etc, make this accessible even to the novice bread baker, while there's plenty here to learn for more experienced bread bakers. Her instructions are concise but thorough and so far the one recipe I've tried - everything bagel challah - yielded a delicious, flavorful, tender bread that I've eaten entirely too much of.
I'm really thrilled with this cookbook and I can't wait to keep baking/eating more from Shannon's genius book.
The recipes are easy, everything tasted amazing, and they all come out looking very impressive.
I only gave it four stars however, for a couple of reasons. One, the recipes all require way more sugar than I'm comfortable using, use a lot of yeast, and have extremely long rise times. Two, it would be nice if the book included prep times and serving sizes.
But - the flavor combinations are delicious whether following the recipe exactly or using as inspiration to combine with your own dough recipes. I love this book.
Thankful to have this modern take on some of our favorite baked goods.
