If you love good bread, but are put off making your own as traditional bread making takes too long, then this is the book for you!
You basically throw the ingredients together, let them rest, then pop it in the fridge, where it keeps for about two weeks until you're ready to use it.
When you want some bread, you take some, quickly shape it, leave it to rise for 30 mins, then bake.
However, there are conversion errors in the recipes
The Master Recipe (p 44) gives a bakers percentage for water of 78.3% if the imperial units are used and 83.3% if metric units used.
This carelessness is a major drawback.
I queried this on the authors website, and just got 'stick closer to 78% hydration'.
So it looks as if the imperial units are closer to the original American recipes.
Further reading turned up their healthy artisan bread book using the same principles, but using vital wheat gluten to help with the rising process when baking with whole wheat flour or other ingredients.Read more ›
If you are a busy housewife, mother, partner or someone who just loves the idea of fresh gorgeous bread whenever you fancy, this is the book for you.
I have a breadmaker, a great one that I love but I'm always 5 hours away from a loaf which is not convenient sometimes, how great to be able to snip off the dough I need and let it rest for 30 mins and bake. The crust is like the best french bread you buy in Paris and the smell is devine.
Give it a go! I think you will be suprised and delighted at the small amount of effort and the big results.
There are some nice recipes in the book too, my find of the year!
I have not bought bread in over 2 months now and we always have a loaf on the go. I would say that the bread is much better once cooled, it keeps for several days in the fridge (although its always eaten within 3 days in my house). The basic dough can also be used for pizza bases which taste great. The recipes are easy to play around with - adding vegtables, dried fruit, herbs etc... I have converted many friends and family members who were initially very cynical.
The only draw back is needing room in the fridge to store the dough - although i no longer need space to store shop bread.
Buy this book and prepared to become fanatical!
