This is simply the best bread book available.

I am a gormless, narcissistic teenager with next to no knowledge of the complex and highly scientific world of bread making. After falling in love with the gorgeous James Morton on The Great British Bake Off, I decided to buy his book, mostly because he looked so cute on the front cover (shallow, I know).

Fantastic book!!! I have been baking bread for a year, and this book has a great mix of difficulties for me. I love his style, and all of the recipes I have done have produced breads that were delicious and fun to work with!

A brilliant cook book that explains the how's and whys about bread making. Written in easy to understand language and an amusing tone. What's more, I haven't bought a loaf of bread for months because it doesn't taste anywhere near as good as the loaves from this book.

Best bread book.

No nonsense book about bread. Make bread at your pace, I like idea of shoving the dough in the fridge if you need to go out.
