Two tried and failed recipes
on 7 October 2013
The edition I have is from 2013, but it was first published in 2004.
I have tried the Ciabatta and the White Bread recipes.
Ciabatta: The ingredients include olive oil. The recipe omits it from the instructions. The amount of water stated produced a dough that turned into unworkable slop (and I didn't even use the full amount).
White Bread. The texture turned out well. Unfortunately the finished product was far too salty (and I religiously weighed out the ingredients).
What other errors does the book contain? I'm not going to find out. This book is going into the dustbin where it belongs.
There are far better books on bread making than this.
