I highly recommend this book. It is packed full of great recipes, along with loads of helpful hints to help you improve your baking skills.

I made baguettes and cinnamon swirls from the book this weekend and both turned out brilliantly. I would like to think this was down to my skills, but think it has more to do with the great recipes and detailed instructions!

I have got a few baking books but this is my new favourite! It has a wide variety of recipes and goes beyond the standard that you find in most books.

The book is written in such a way that it is suitable for all levels. It would be great for someone keen to learn the basics, but also has tips which would help those who have a bit more experience.

I suggest you buy the book and join the revolution!

This is one of the most beautifully-designed books I've come across in a long time. I've noticed quite a few criticisms about it only containing about 50% of bread recipes. This is probably the case, and if you want a thorough guide to baking bread then we've found the Dorling Kindersley book to be very good. However, Bread Revolution is presenting more than just a guide to baking bread; it's giving an image of a lifestyle. There are general food recipes so you'll have some fun ideas as to what to have with your scrummy new bread, and suggestions as to what to do with leftover bread once it starts to go stale. The sunny photos and fun little side-comments make me smile and make it a book I enjoy sitting down and reading, not just baking from (my husband does all the baking anyway!)

I love cooking but kind of shy away from baking. I have so many cookbooks on my shelves but this book has been a bit of a game changer for me. It's got me excited about baking and after only having it for 1 day I made the Cinnamon Swirls and that was it really, my passion for baking was back! I'm pretty rubbish at baking and they were amazing. Can't recommend this book enough, not only does it have great recipes for sweet and savoury breads but for meals to accompany the breads too. Definitely my number 1 baking book and the first one that has ever made me instantly make a recipe on day 1.

Format: Hardcover
A call to arms: come on and join our baking revolution is the claim and gauntlet being thrown down to the food establishment by a duo of "eco-artisan bakers".
Here in their Bread Revolution book is an interesting challenge to everybody, inciting you to rethink your views about baking and relationship to the humble loaf. Through an arty, passion-filled prose the dynamic duo seek to show that the average family could eschew the large commercial "factory bakers" and make their own bread at home.
Many people have the view that you either must have a complicated, expensive bread-making machine or must endure much manual hardship with variable results and hand-make bread. Much easier to buy so-called "artisan" bread from a large supermarket that has often been baked in bulk by a commercial partner and "finished off" in store to make it look wonderful and smell delicious. No... Instead the advice given in this colourful, information-packed book will have you believe that you can make whatever bread you want with ease (and maybe even a smile on your face). You just need to have the confidence in yourself. Oh, and a few basic ingredients: a good bread flour, yeast, water and salt. Everything else is just a variation or a build on this using things like eggs, butter & milk, sugar, nuts and herbs.
First of all the reader is given a good primer on the different doughs necessary to produce things like an everyday loaf. If it doesn't turn out as expected a number of trouble-shooting and feelings-rescuing hints are given. After you have your basic loaf you can add a garnish or a glaze to customise it, thereafter in principle you have an infinite range of possibilities that only available ingredients and your imagination can limit it too.
Throughout the book you continue to learn.

Had the book 2 days. Done the cinnamon rolls and cheese bread - absolutely gorgeous.
Bit surprised that the bagels did not have eggs in them but still came out fine.
The suggested method of shaping dough for a bread tin could have been aided by a diagram or three. This is the exact phase where a lot of beginners get it wrong and end up with mutant loaves which do not cut properly as the crust forms unevenly.
Doing the potato baguettes tonight.
Its a good read and now at a bargain price. Detailed recipes, interesting stories and there is something uplifting about the book. Idealists succeeding in a cynical world. Brilliant! I am off to open a bakery.

A small update. The potato baguettes were brilliant.

a much anticipated book by myself, and not as great as it could have been in my opinion. Don't get me wrong its a good bread book, but in a market of other really good bread books it doesn't stand out.
Also i was anticipating recipes for their great breads that they sell, but some are missing, notably the beetroot bread.

i would still recommend the purchase of this book, just personally thought it could have been great not just good
