Completely ignores one of the biggest bread regions in the world......the Middle East. It has Hebrew selections though. I was looking forward to seeing selections from this region. Disappointed.
New edition of a classic I like a book that opens with "imperative introductory material". It was first published in 1941 so I respect this as you would a command from a stern yet kind elder. I really didn't know how to bake bread more than a zucchini loaf, so I was glad to start with the basics. With the flurry of recipes that I come across daily, I find the expertise of this book very valuable. In my hands I have a curated collection of 275 recipes that are organized by country of origin as well as... "mood", may be a way to explain it. Basically, the authors organized recipes in lists like: If you are a Beginner; If you have Sour Cream; If you want something Inexpensive... and so on. It's amazing how many different kinds of breads there are in this world. I started off with the Irish soda breads and so excited to make a bigger dent. You may notice that the section of Irish recipes is rather short because they found many recipes too close to the British, so if you want more: check the Irish Pantry.
