Bread Making: A Practical Guide to All Aspects of Bread Making

Author:  Jane Eastoe
Genre:  Cooking & Baking

Five Stars

Bread is one of the oldest prepared foods and one of immense social and political significance.  In Britain we eat about 8 million loaves a day, most of it shop bought. But more and more people are now making their own bread. In this book, all the techniques, ingredients and the science of bread making are explained and in addition, a range of recipes are featured, including some from the National Trust.

The recipes include the basics such as Wholemeal, Granary, Rye, Corn and Farmhouse bread but there are also many regional specialities, such as Barmbrack, Bara Brith, English Muffins, Crumpets, Pikelets, Beer Bread, Welsh Cakes and Bath Buns too.  This attractive little book contains everything you need to inspire you to start  making your own bread.


Since you're never going to have a long, protracted review of a cookbook, I will get right to the point:  A lovely book regarding the art of making bread.  There are some terrific recipes, and I especially like the English Muffins, Crumpets and Bath Buns.  None of the recipes are too difficult (at least the ones that I have already tried), and are even easy enough for a somewhat novice baker.  For anyone who has ever wanted to branch out their baking skills, this is highly recommended.
