    A Work of Heart

    This book took a lot of time, travel and testing. Very impressive is the author's diligence in personally producing the recipes and refining many 'en masse' bathes down to one loaf for homecooks to attempt and enjoy. The text is conversational and historically interesting while the photos artfully and tastefully compliment the read. This is a sophisticated yet homey edition to any cook's library.
