    A Must Have

    I have made several things out of this book and they have all been amazing! My Ciabatta looked like it came right from a bakery. The tool and formulas he provides are ones I plan on coming back to again and again. You wont be disappointed. Each recipe has at least 2 other types of breads you can make from the main recipe. This allows you to really experience all kinds of breads and methods for accomplishing bakery quality bread. This book is great for the beginner, the advanced and the professional. The clear pictures, DVD demonstration, and well thought out directions can make you into a great home bread maker. Now these are not going to be those 20 minute recipes that are so popular now, but the extra time you spend will be well worth it - I promise!

    Excellent book!

    This is an easy to understand book even if you do not have any bread making experience. Have made quite a few of the recipes and they have all been excellent but I have also tweaked some when it came to the baking temperature. Set off the smoke detector when baking the chiabatta rolls! Ingredient lists are in several formats depending on your preference. Would suggest buying a scale as the book suggests. You will be amazed at the difference in quantities when "scaling". Have not watched the dvd that came with it but there are plenty of pictures that show you how each stage should look. Well worth the price. My family is always asking me when am I going to make more bread!

    ArtisanBreadBaking

    Ciril Hitz is an inspired, life-long learning, and top-flight instructor at Johnson & Wales University located in the state of Rhode Island. His book is one of lessons distilled through a life's worth of dedication to the art and science of baking, and his gently coaxing and inspiring method of teaching reaches out to his students the readers.

    My college professor, upon completion of our 2009 Spring semester coursework on Artisan Breads, recommended Ciril's book for further reading, and he -- in fact -- based the very fabric of the design of his course upon it. It is an investment, "in gold," for the inspired.
