Absolutely Brilliant Book. I bought their first book, but this is even better as there are healthy alternatives. Very easy to make and good results. Basically you make up a batch of dough that you keep in the fridge and use as and when you need it. There is no kneading involved and the chance of failure very low. The same batch can be used for lots of different recipes by adding different flavours to the dough. You can also freeze the dough. I have done this successfully. You will be surprised at just how many different things you can make from one batch of bread. Buy it, you won't be disappointed
This is such an easy method for making bread. Best tip I read before buying was to get gluten at same time (it's available on Amazon) so that you don't have to wait to start making bread. They describe all the ingredients required and the science behind why the bread works (you can skip this part if you want, but I found it really interesting and helpful to know). Then they give the method to a basic recipe in easy steps but detailed enough description to help you get it right. My first loaf was great, the following ones not as good, but they tell you how to improve your method based on the results you get. Still every loaf was edible and enjoyed.
The bread recipes in this book look great but every one of them relies on the addition of vital wheat gluten. I went to Holland & Barrat, Julian Graves as well as a number of other health food shops in the city where I live, and the wheat gluten was not sold anywhere. I investigated on the internet and it is available but is not very cheap, and with postage makes a rather expensive item. Am thinking of returning the book as I am weary of making any of the breads without the wheat gluten.
Great book! The original book was so good that I bought this one too. So glad I did. I've tried 5 different recipes in this book and they've all been wonderful. I especially like the Olive Spelt bread. I found the ingredients easy to locate at my local bulk and organic health food stores.
A great book with all the bread recipes you will ever need for the rest of your life! A bit of a learning curve but once you get your head wrapped around this very easy technique of making bread you will never, ever, need to knead for 10 min. again!
