Bread Matters: The sorry state of modern bread and&hellip by Andrew Whitley
A brilliant motivational book.

I first came across Andrew Whitley through an article in a USA newspaper [...]

I had just retired and my wife was trying to talk me into making proper bread by hand as she did not have the time. I saw no point in trying to imitate the stuff for sale in our supermarkets and liking Andrew's style I tried his recipe. It was an instant success with everyone who came to visit or stay with us and is still our staple bread several years later.

I was amazed as it looks perfect still.
