Book Description

19 Sep 2011
Acclaimed professional baker Suzanne Dunaway reveals her truly revolutionary technique for baking unforgettable breads that require no fuss and no special equipment. The crusts are lighter, chewier, and the crumb is moist, stays fresh longer, and has more intense flavour than most breads. Her ingredients are simply flour, water, yeast and salt - and, passion. She uses no preservatives or additives of any kind. The recipes are her own creations, developed over years of trial and error. You will find focaccia, ciabatta, pane rustico and pizza as well as breads from around the world such as baguette, sourdough flapjacks, blini, muffins, corn bread, brioche, African Spiced bread, kulich and kolaches. In addition many of the basic bread doughs are fat-free, sugar-free and dairy-free making then perfect for people on strict dietary or allergy regimes. There are also dozens of recipes for dishes you can make with bread - souffles, soups, salads and even desserts such as chocolate bread pudding. Plus fun recipes to make with children.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing - untested recipes 10 Mar 2013
It seems to me that the recipes weren't tested after being prepared for publication.

One example is "Sourdough Flapjacks" where the ingredients for the Starter are listed as 240ml water, 130g flour and 2 tbps sugar. The instructions then say "Add the flour and salt to the water". What salt?! It isn't listed in the ingredients. And what am I supposed to do with the sugar? It isn't mentioned in the instructions.

OK, I can guess that I should add a small amount of salt, even though it isn't among the ingredients, and the sugar should be added with the flour and salt. But what if errors in other recipes are less obvious?

Worst of all, the recipe won't work without some kind of leaven. There's no mention of a sourdough starter or yeast anywhere in the recipe. I even tried following the recipe, just to be sure, in case there was enough natural yeast in the flour or atmosphere to do the job. Needless to say, there wasn't.

For all I know, all the other recipes are spot on, but I'm not prepared to risk it, not when there are three errors in a simple, four-ingredient "Starter".

Two other comments...there are no photos or anything else to indicate what the finished item should look like. That isn't the end of the world but, without photos, the book seems significantly over-priced. On a positive note, in case you were wondering, ingredients are given in grams or millilitres as well as inaccurate cup measures.

Fortunately, I borrowed my copy from the library before deciding whether to buy. It's going back tomorrow!


I looked at the grey sludge that was supposed to be a starter and decided to see what I could do with it.

This is a fantastic book. I've made lovely bread using the recipes. The first time, I really didn't think it would work, especially as I have labelled myself as a rubbish bread maker. But it did! I would thoroughly recommend the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Title Back in Print 19 Jan 2014
By Fiske Miles - Published on
A few years ago I came across this book in our public library and liked it so well I wanted my own copy. But, it had been out of print for some years and only a few copies were available through internet websites. I paid $65 for a copy, and was happy to get it. More copies of the first edition showed up following that sale (actually a couple sales because I recommended the book to several friends), and the first edition price came down a bit. I also corresponded briefly with Suzanne via email (we have never met) to learn if she was planning to get the book back into print. I'm delighted to find that she has done so. I have tried numerous recipes from the book and have had success with them. Moreover, the book includes original water color illustrations made by the author herself along with personal anecdotes and and background information. It's a treat and deserves a place on your baking cookbook shelf. And note, Suzanne was doing no-knead before no-knead was cool. I also own and recommend Jim Lahey's My Bread, which uses a slightly different (and really clever) baking technique, but the basic approach to making the dough is like Suzanne's and she published her book first!

2.0 out of 5 stars No Need To Knead 20 Mar 2013
By David Meldrum-Taylor - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Recipes that I have tried so far have not been successful. The concepts espoused in this book run counter to generally accepted baking principles, but it's worth tryingeven if only to broaden one's experience of what works and what doesn't. The NY Times/ Cook's Illustrated Almost No-Knead Bread and baking principles work well and I had hoped that this book might extend those concepts - alas not.
