I have been experimenting with bread making for a few months ago and somehow was led to this book. I had read Artisan bread in 5 minutes a day and apparently was the only person in the universe who didn't find the book to be that useful (the container with the bread dough took up half my fridge.. I only got 2.5 loaves out of each batch.. and I set off the smoke alarm in my house TWICE heating up the baking pan sprinkled w/ cornmeal...) so I was looking for something else. I find bread making to ...more
There are some delicious recipes in this book, but part of how I rate cookbooks is by their functionality in actual use. On strength of the recipes, this should easily be a four star book.

The four sections for the different seasons are called "Springtide," "Sun Food," "Autumn and Harvest" and "Winter Darkness." Are you serious, book? Yes, but you shouldn't be.

Every recipe I've tried has been delicious and inspired me to build upon her ideas. The photography is also really nice. Easy to use. Highly recommend it.
I keep trying to cook every recipe in this book. I think I've tried about seventy percent of them. It is my favorite bread book.
