Most of the breads in this book are sourdough starter based (and no yeast). This is my first experience trying to making bread without yeast, and probably the last for a while. Making sourdough is the most frustrating thing I've done in the kitchen, post macaron experience. I tried...and failed. And in the process, a lot of good and pricey organic flour went to the trash. Hence, this book is not idiot proof, and I'm sticking to classic yeast bread recipes.

On a side note: I tried the yeasted brea

I borrowed this from the library in to check it out before purchasing it. I am still undecided as to whether to buy it as I have to be realistic and I just don't see myself making the effort to make sour dough bread. I realise that once you make your first starter and get in the routine of refreshing it etc. it's probably easy enough but I just can't picture it.
The DVD that was included was very good, and from watching it I can imagine myself making brioche. I didn't realise there were so much

Perhaps the best book I've read on slow breads. The photos are not just beautiful and appetizing, but really educational. This book will leave your mouth watering!

As good as "Dough", with some twists. Good as a stand-alone first-time book, or back-to-back with "Dough".

I got this for Christmas and so far I've made the sourdough twice (I already had a leaven going) and the ciabatta once. All the recipes are well laid out and easy to follow with great photographs. The accompanying DVD is very handy for observing technique. I really can't fault this book, or Bertinet's other book 'Dough'. This is definitely a book suited to people who want to make 'slow' bread though and beginners would probably be better off starting with 'Dough'.

This book is brilliant! The Author's techniques for kneading and forming dough have really helped me in my search for great homemade bread. His Sourdough starter process is also amazing.

The photography is STUNNING! Most of the cookbooks I own were purchased because of the photography. This book is beautiful.

The DVD that comes with the book illustrates his kneading technique very well, but isn't shot as sumptuously as the stills in the book.

I love his sourdough recipe (but with far less water). I find his attitude to his sourdough far too hardline and prescriptive - just relax and it will all be fine!

There was not enough general guidance in the book for my taste, but if you're looking for very prescriptive recipes, it may appeal to you. I took it out of the library and have no great wish to own it.
Aug 30, 2014 Emma rated it it was ok
Although it's an okay *book*, I rated it as 2 because I'm not the biggest fan of sourdough, and that is one of the biggest recipes in the book. I might try it, though, because if anyone could write a sourdough recipe I would like, it would be Bertinet.

An excellent introduction to serious breadmaking. Good, simple instructions. I have found other artisan bread books more comprehensive but this is a much better introduction. Bertinet's a good guide and the DVD is a useful addition.

Also got this baking book for Christmas. I am going to be testing quite a few of the recipes, including one for bagels...
