This review is from: How to Bake (Hardcover)I do have 100 great breads and I think this book is better. This one unlike the other has good photos for every recipe and only makes 1 loaf/quantity (not the occasional 3 loaf recipes in 100 breads)There are clear helpful instructions and having just made the brioche recipe from it I am ecstatic with the results! It looks amazing! I was worried that How to bake would be a duplicate of the other book with a few extra recipes but it isn't, it has loads of different ones and I am really wishing I had more time free to make them all! Here are just a few things you can make - baklava, chocolate & cranberry brownies, pitta breads, crumpets, wraps, pain au chocolat, apple danish, hot cross buns, teacakes, pecan loaf, pear, pecan and chocolate crumble, clafoutis, passion fruit souffle, lemon drizzle cake,cottage loaf, scones, blueberry pancakes, cherry & chocolate muffins, simnel cake, christmas cake, lemon meringue pie... Hungry yet?!

I can honestly say this is the best cookery book I've bought. The reason? EVERY recipe is within my sometimes limited experience, each one looks delicious and each will produce wonderful results due to the hand-holding way the recipes are written. Recently I've stopped buying complete albums from iTunes, preferring to download specific songs I like, as there are always a few on each album you skip over. Recipe books are notoriously the same, so I've stopped buying them, preferring to source the recipes on the internet. I now have a folder full of bits of paper. However, unlike those albums, with songs that never get played, every recipe in this book is appealing - and I intend to bake every one eventually. I can't fault it. Unfortunately it's cost me over £500 as I've had to get a new oven to ensure good results - my current one burns everything at the front and leaves it raw at the back! I can't wait to start using this book - well done Paul. Here's to more of them in the future.

Quite agree, Mrs C. This book has something for every taste. I have recently made a few things from this excellent book and am keen to do more. Fortunately I don't need a new oven, but a nice big mixer with equally big dough-hook...well maybe, if I am allowed!!
