5.0 out of 5 stars A friendly and approachable guide to bread, 2 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brilliant Bread (Hardcover)
I've got a few books on bread, from simple small ones giving just a collection of recipes to the mighty Bread Baker's Apprentice, which appears primarily aimed at the catering student wishing to enter the world of commercial breadmaking and makes you think you can't make anything decent without a steam-injecting oven.

Enter James Morton. Forget about bread being scary or difficult, just sit back and relax as he guides you gently through the realisation that it absolutely isn't.

You don't even have to knead anything.

I know.

Okay so I've seen no-knead bread before, but that was a specific kind of bread. This is no-knead applied to all sorts of breads, and where that doesn't work the principles are applied to let you reduce the amount of kneading you have to do, if you want to. Yeast is explained. Gluten formation is described. There are step-by-step picture guides to shaping various kinds of loaf, and an in-depth exploration (without being intimidating) of the sourdough starter.

Get the book, and there's a serious risk you'll not want to buy supermarket bread ever again.
