You too can make fantastic bread!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crust: Bread to Get Your Teeth into (Hardcover)
I have bought quite a few 'bread' books over the years, and have followed many different experts' advice but always felt my bread wasn't quite a good as it could be. Now, armed with CRUST and DOUGH, both by Richard Bertinet, I feel confident I am creating the best bread I have ever tasted time after time. I have tried many of the different breads in both books now and can honestly say every one has worked. Everything is explained so you know exactly what to do and helpful photographs illustrate each process along the way.
What could be better on a wet Bank Holiday than sitting down to a homemade lasagne, a big green salad and a basket of sourdough bread - the BEST ever sourdough bread you have ever seen or tasted?!
Just a week and a half after I received CRUST, by following Mr Bertinet's instructions to the letter, and having watched his demonstration of the process on the included DVD, I have produced sourdough bread to be proud of! I am ecstatic!!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend CRUST (which covers the Sourdough bread process in detail), and DOUGH (the book that got me into his method of dough-making) to anyone interested in making their own bread - their own FANTASTIC bread!

I have this book on order....I look forward to joining you ecstatically eating my sourdough bread! Lasagne of not! I too like bread of all types. I'm a huge fan of Dan Lepard and somewhere I've written that I think Lepard's book, The Handmade Loaf, is second only to Elizabeth David's, English Bread and Yeast Cookery 1977. No pretty pictures but lot's of history and info. Quite a different type of book. Thanks for the review.
