4.0 out of 5 stars 5* Baking, 2 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hairy Bikers' Big Book of Baking (Hardcover)
I'd never really paid any attention to previous Hairy Bikers' output as I'd wrongly categorised them as a made-up-pairing in the mould of the Two Fat Ladies. I saw their first TV episode traveling through Norway and was absolutely riveted. The pair are proper bakers - they know why things work or not, they show you exactly what it is you should be doing and they do it with such panache and showmanship you can't help but warm to them. I'd say you'd need to see the pair at work to really appreciate the book - there are some minor differences in the recipe methodologies as recorded in print. Nevertheless, you should follow what they say/show you. The Rye bread mixture really is wet and they remind you not to add any additional flour. Do as they say because the result is a beautifully textured moist bread - not what I was expecting for a rye loaf. The potato bread recipe differs in the final proving and arrangement but it will come out lovely whatever shape you make it. I'm really pleased I found this resource as it trumps another so-called bread maker's book I also own. Compared to the relatively dry bread that comes out of my electric breadmaker all the recipes I've tried have been gorgeously moist, tasty and moreish. (A warning if you're watching your weight!)

How did you do all that in the 2 days since the book was published?

I ordered my copy 30th March it came very quickly and I was able to watch the programmes with the book on my lap. The recipes were also posted on the broadcasters website - my first attempt at one was from that. I was so impressed I felt I must have my own copy.
