Bread: A Baker's Book of Techniques and Recipes (Hospitality)
Bread: A Baker's Book of Techniques and Recipes (Hospitality)
by Jeffrey Hamelman
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Go no further, 5 Jun. 2011
There has been an explosion of books devoted to making real bread. This is simply the best and, along with Elizabeth David's "English Bread and Yeast Cookery", you don't need any others. Hamelman is a no frills writer who communicates techniques and methods very clearly. I have worked my way through a number of his pains au levain recipies and his sourdoughs and they worked out very well. My only niggle is that as it is written for North American readers it therefore uses US measures. However, a little work with a calculator sorts things out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely Dido, 23 April 2009
This is a wonderful Dido & Aeneas. Bott, Kirkby, Ainsley, Thomas, are all in excellent voice and Hogwood's direction of the Academy of Ancient Music is first rate. On the qulaity and price axis this version is a standout winner.
