Get a new editor!
on 3 October 2011
This dvd follows many of the other River Cottage dvds in style. A decent introduction, then some recipes. Most of it is presented by River Cottage staff, rather then Hugh. It is a good companion for the bread handbook if you want to see some of the techniques used.
I've only watched a couple of the recipes through all the way so far, and whilst the filming is fine, the editing and printed recipes are poor. For brioche, the lady says eight eggs quite quickly, it is easy to miss. Then the eggs do not appear on the ingredients list! So you could easily miss them out or forget them for your shopping list if you rely on the ingredients list. I think this is quite poor, it is a shame that production companies do not check their productions properly before selling them.
