Product Description

Review

'What David is really out to do is to explore the role of bread in English life over the past few centuries. Hence her recipe-section, too, proves to be a magnificent historical anthology filled with lore from every source imaginable - Robert May, Hannah Glasse, Eliza Acton, forgotten Women's Institute compilations, professional baking manuals, letters from readers...She goes as far afield as pizza, croissants, and a quiche involving Roquefort or other blue cheese. But her focus remains British breads, from Irish soda-bread (still called "a cake of bread" on its home turf) to crumpets...Generous quotations from memoirists, novelists, travelers, and knowledgeable acquaintances are interspersed among the old and modern recipes - without seeming in the least like window-dressing. ' --Kirkus Review

The best book ever written on the subject. --The Week

A delight to read ... a must for keen bakers and also those who enjoy reading about food and its history. Still regarded as the best book about baking bread ever written. --The Oxford Times

Very nicely produced reprint of this classic. A good read even if you never intend to bake bread but be prepared to be persuaded. Only complaint is that this edition doesn't include the originals photo plates although the text does refer to them.

A simply great read. It provides a tremendous authoritive account charting the history of flour milling from its earliest beginnings through to the present day. Definitely more than just a collection of recipes. Superbly written too, peppered with anecdotal detail.

This is a great book to read just to get the history of bread making. The stories and recipes behind old techniques and reasons for baking certain types of bread provide a rich context for modern day bread-making. Making your own bread becomes that much more enjoyable. A lovely book.

My title says it all, really. A friend bought me a copy years and years ago which is now falling apart, though this was not a replacement, but as a gift for another bread-maker enthusiast. It's simply the best, up there with Eliza Acton, but with good tried and tested recipes.

My husband has an original paperback copy but the pages are now falling out and some are stained due to use.
He was so pleased to receive this.
