This is truly an inspirational book. I have been searching for years for recipes for the sort of bread that you just can't find in English shops, and this is it. The San Francisco sourdough is sensational.
Although most of the recipes are time-consuming and somewhat complicated (and I had to invest in a second-hand Kenwood mixer), the results are worthwhile. But the recipe for wholemeal bread using commercial easy-bake yeast is a lot simpler than other recipes I have used, and the resulting bread is much better.
If you want to bake real bread with real taste, get this book. I guarantee you will never touch the pre-wrapped sliced stuff from your supermarket again!
