This book is great for novice bread bakers. The step-by-step instructions are very easy to follow. There are excellent and beautiful photographs throughout (as is standard in DK books), and all of the mysterious bread terms are well-explained and demonstrated. I've not yet baked a bad loaf from a recipe in this book, and I've had it for over 5 years! Two favorite recipes are Mantovana (p. 114) and Focaccia Con Olive (p. 107), but I'm half-Italian, so maybe I'm biased toward Italian breads!
I love this book! I bought this book one day, never making bread before. It has an easy step by step guide to baking wonderful breads. My friends and family were so proud. This book has beautiful illustrations and historical tidbits on each bread which I enjoyed.
My daughter had checked this out of the library so many times she was literally wearing it out. Excellent receipes, easy to follow, historical tidbits and Great Graphics. got her one for xmas last year and it is well used and loved. I have told her I need one this year.
This is an excellent book for anyone who loves to make bread. It starts out with how tos and great visuals. The recipes are fabulous!
