I hadn’t baked before I bought this, I’ve now baked my way through the whole book. His explanations are so easy to understand that it clears away any fears you may have about trying baking.
The first few breads in the book don’t involve kneading, so he takes that pressure away from you and helps you nail a few great tasting breads. The breads with bits section is great for learning how to introduce different ingredients and flavours to breads. And then there’s the sourdough section, which will change your life forever! I even made croissants and panettone for my family this Christmas, which I never thought I’d be able to do.
So if you’re thinking of starting to bake and don’t know where to start, I’d highly recommend this book.
One of the best books on bread that I have; and I have a few!
Brilliant is in the title, arguably one of a few accurate titles of any publication.
James has written his book in such a way that it is an enjoyable read, as well as being a very useful recipe book. His love for bread making in all shapes and forms is evident, and comes across well in his chatty yet extremely informative style of writing. I’ve got my sourdough starter burping away happily in a corner of the kitchen, and am very excited about making some more wonderful bread recipes from this book. Definitely recommended, and I’ve now brought another copy for my mother, who is a highly experienced bread home baker and also thought this book was definitely worth having. This book offers more than just a recipe for making a loaf of white bread – there’s all sorts of yummy things to make in here, and I’m looking forward to trying them all.
If you have some experience with bread making you can dive into the book from any starting point. If you are a beginner, I would recommend starting at the beginning of the book, reading it carefully and digesting (!) the information offered, then moving through the straightforward breads before moving on to the more advanced recipes. But most importantly, have fun. Bread making is very theurapetic, creative and highly satisfying. If it doesn’t turn out quite how you anticipated the first time, there’s a 99 percent chance it will still be extremely delicious. And just try again! It’s all good.
But I still failed making a nice sourdough, there are so many factors- i would not fault his book.
