The technical information about bread making that the start of the book are very detailed, and include a lot of detail missing from many other books. Descriptions of the method for each loaf are extremely well thought-through, clear and easy to follow.
If I have two minor disappointments, it is that there is little descriptive information about the origins or history of many of the traditional recipes and that - while the book as plenty of photographs - not all the recipes show you how the finished loaf will look.
This is a large format book, which is well-presented and had the nice addition of a ribbon marker tfor keep your place.
This is probably not the book for the novice bread baker, or those who expect a loaf of bread after a few hours, but will be a serious resource for readers who what to take their bread-making to the next level.
