5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch in so many ways, 15 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How to Bake (Hardcover)
I hate reading cookery book reviews where the reviewer has not tried any recipes. So I have waited to try a few recipes before writing my own review. This book is excellent. The recipes are clear, concise and each recipe has a clear photograph. There are detailed explanations for the inexperienced baker on how to mix, knead and bake the dough. There are simple and advanced recipes and this I feel would suit someone who mostly likes to bake a simple loaf but occasionally likes to push the boat out and get fancy. This is a perfect book for absolute beginners as the pictures have been carefully chosen to perfectly illustrate the techniques. I have tried the wraps, pitta bread and am eating a ciabatta as I type. I followed the instructions and I ended up with fab bread. The wraps were a particular hit with my daughter who likes to invite pals round for fajitas. I had to experiment a bit with the amount of water added. I added a bit more water to the wraps and pitta and a bit less water to the ciabatta. The ciabatta is tricky to handle. I used oil on my worktop when cutting up the dough and life was much less sticky. Mr Hollywood has created a superb book.

A wee update. Found the muffins had too much butter and the Christmas buns were adored by my lucky colleagues.

Another wee update. The scones made with bread flour are superb. If you follow the instructions precisely you achieve light fluffy scones. I added some fruit and treacle and they were even better.
