A Bread Baker's Dream Come True

Odd as it may sound, I read this book cover to cover after buying it yesterday at my local B&N. I love to bake bread, and the author's philosophy when it comes to baking the perfect loaf made the book impossible to put down. Reading through the formulas, even the beginning baker can see how the 12 steps described in the first chapter apply to each type of bread. Today I made the Greek Celebration Bread, and the Brioche based bread with cheese and salami (certain to delight my father-in-law).

I spent a few days reading this book, trying to decide what bread I would make and just became more and more stressed about it. I have a huge collection of cookbooks and cook extensively, but this one was over the top for me. It is very esoteric. I'm sure the bread would be great if you had the time to learn the techniques, find the ingredients, and make it. I returned it and bought Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. It's much more accessible for someone who isn't ready to bake bread full time!
