Carol Field divides her book into the following chapters:
BAKING BASICS (discussion of ingredients, equipment and method)
REGIONAL AND RUSTIC BREADS (includes olive oil bread, saltless tuscan bread, dark tuscan bread, Genzano bread, Merano rye, Sicilian bread, and lots more. My favourites in this chapter are the Como bread with a lovely crispy crust, olive rolls, Terni bread, and the ciabatta.)
MODERN BREADS (includes vegetable and herbs breads, as well as various-grain breads. The tomato bread is awesome as is the cheese bread. Marvellous chapter!)
USING LEFTOVER BREADS (savoury dishes and desserts)
CELEBRATION BREADS (a lovely selection of sweet breads with various additions such as nuts, fruit peel, dried fruit, spices)
ROLLS AND BREADSTICKS
PIZZA AND FOCACCIA
ELEGANT BREADS (sweet and savoury croissants, turnovers, tarts, strudels, appetizers)
TARTS AND PIES
I definitely recommend Carol Field's book as it is a massive collection of every recipe you might ever need, for every occasion, whether it is a nice baguette to go with pasta, a rye bread for sandwiches, a pizza for the family, a cake for Christmas, or just quick cookies after work when you don't have much time.Read more ›
A weighted tome with insufficient pictures, the excessive, pedantic precision given to measurements and repetitive nature to the recipes disqualifies this as something only to impress your neighbours. The detail gives me a headache. Call me dumb, call me slow, call me a simpleton, but I seek clarity. Ironically, but by exhausting the maths, she only discombobulates in U.S. lingo. I'm no professional baker, but I see the wisdom of baker's percentages to empower the novice at home. There are none, fine: I've got a little brain, a little calculator, a little maths in my head: one could work it out basically. (A bit like Marmite one concedes, you either take to percentages or you don't, but the more you bake, the more you'll desire them: don't fight it, 'tis a baker's truth). So if you plan to spend a whole lot of money on this book, get yourself digital weights to use this book: it's redundant without.Read more ›
