Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Dunaway grew up in a family of bread bakers, and shortly after a friend encouraged her to sell her breads, she found herself making 1000 loaves a week in her home kitchen. Today she and her husband are the owners of Buona Forchetta Hand Made Breads in Los Angeles, a professional bakery where her wonderful loaves are still made by hand. She prefers the texture of bread made with little or no kneading, and she likes loaves with a high ratio of crust to crumb (the inside of a loaf), e.g., baguettes; long, thin filoncini; and ladder-shaped fougasse. Illustrated with Dunaway's own charming line drawings, her book provides recipes for dozens of breads, including sweet loaves, and pizzas, along with many ways for using leftovers, from bread salads to bread puddings. There are a number of good artisan bread books available, but with its user-friendly recipes and readable text, this is recommended for most baking collections.

    Superb bread for a new baker

    Get this book! The author explains everything in an easy to understand, user-friendly manner. All the recipes that I have tried in the book were terrific. The great focaccia couldn't be easier or better tasting. Also delicious are the Pane Casereccio and Ciabatta. Since I'm a new bread baker I wish it had a few pictures that I could compare my finished products with, but since they have all come out wonderful it doesn't really matter. Highly recommended.

    My new baking reference

    I quickly found this book to be one I'll never be without. The pizza crust puts this one on the map forever. The daily bread receipes produce results that are amazing and easy to do. Beautiful artwork illustrates the loaves. I love it!!

    Yum Yum Yum!

    It is hard to believe that something so simple can provide the excellent and consistant results that these recipes do! With simple ingredients and a little effort (very little!) youcan turn out the bread of the bread lovers dreams. I wish I could give it more than just 5 stars! With a chewy crisp crust and a moist, 'holey' interior these are the rustic artisan breads that I have been searching for for years. I've baked a lot of bread, but never found anything as simple and delicious as the foccacia in this book. Even my husband, who only eats bread out of cellophane bags from the grocery store, helps himself to big hunks of these if I turn my back. So, bake 2. One to nibble and one for the table!

    Great Bread

    If you are looking for a book which will tell you how to make bread like in the store or restaurant (only better, of course), you need this book! In an enjoyable style, the author tells all the tricks to making delicious Italian breads, and even includes recipes for things to accompany your breads.

    Old World Bread Excellence--Easy!

    Breads turn out just as author Suzanne Dunaway describes they will. Ciabatta--without a doubt one of the best breads I've ever made. Focaccia enjoyed by friends, family, neighbors. Have been working my way through the book recipe by recipe. Have not had a single disappointment or glitch. Conversational, user friendly book. Have a working knowledge of books on bread including Lora Brody, Bernard Clayton, Beard on Bread. I've baked over 2000 loaves made from scratch plus a hundred loaves with a bread machine. I no longer have the time to give to complicated bread making--but I still want old world quality bread. Suzanne Dunaway's book is one that I recommend to all: the simplest to follow that yields outstanding results.

    Bread Success!

    I've been looking for a book on bread making that would teach me how to make 'European style' breads--big, rustic loaves with a chewy crust and a 'hole-y' and slightly damp crumb. I had heard that one secret was to use a very wet dough, but had not seen a cookbook that used this technique. As I read the introduction to 'No Need to Knead,' I saw that author Suzanne Dunaway's recipes were just what I was looking for! I've made several recipes so far and am delighted with the book. The focaccia is the best I've ever made and as good as those I've had in Italy. And it truly takes only 90 minutes to make! The first time I made it, I had a hard time keeping my husband from nibbling it all away before serving it for dinner! Now I'll try mastering the other 'daily breads.' One of the best things about the book is the author's approach that takes some of the mystery out of bread making. She tells us that bread dough is forgiving and that bread is NOT difficult to make. I'm particularly happy to give up kneading dough--which I was never good at anyway. I heartily recommend this book to anyone who wants to make good bread but who may have been put off by thinking it was too difficult. The recipes are excellent, and the author's writing style is friendly and conversational. Her illustrations are charming. I finished reading the book and wished that I could meet the author in person.

    A real Find

    This book is a real find. The basic recipe makes baking bread so easy that I don¿t think twice about doing it, and it makes really excellent bread. All of the other recipes that I have tried are also great. Bread baking can still be a project if I want it to be, but it no longer has to be. Very highly recommended.
