Join, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and the River Cottage team for a personal step-by-step guide to the joys of baking homemade bread.
From a simple, fail-safe, family white loaf to the indulgent weekend delight of your own melt-in-the mouth, all butter croissants and everything in between.
Each recipe is designed for ease of use and maximum clarity, so even if youre the most cautious cook you can turn yourself into a brilliant baker. And as confidence grows, so do your baking options.
Try your hand at artisan baking the way its been done for centuries, by creating your own wild yeast starter and using it to make sourdough.
Or get stuck into an amazing parsnip and cheese loaf - a meal in itself and perfect for campfire cooking, as Hugh proves on a tree planting away day.
We also show you how to experiment with different flours, from rye to spelt and cornmeal to hemp, and Hugh and Gill cook up their favourite recipes for loaf leftovers including the perfect bread sauce and a summer pudding thats too delicious to resist!
So celebrate flour power, liberate yourself from plastic sliced white and cross bread off your supermarket-shopping list forever!
Over an hour and a half of viewing, River Cottage: Bread & Baking serves up fifteen recipes and loads of informative fun, including bonus features on how to build a bread oven and kid friendly doughnuts.
