Truly a book for the apprentice, 6 Nov. 2010
This is a classic text book for learning how to make bread. I had never tried before but, with the careful, patient manner of a good teacher, the author fully explains techniques and the reasons for using those techniques.
I too have found American cookbooks can contradict English measures and can be confusing but this book is excellent on that score and, although experience always helps, it doesn't take long to make fantastic homemade bread with professional quality. Highly recommended
