Half cookbook; half culinary adventures. I enjoyed the brief histories of the various breads and the tweaks that different people made to the same recipes. I planned to cook my way through this but with rampant obesity in the US and all I decided to cook a few. Trying to master the croissant from this book was fun, sad and just plain delicious. If you like breads of all kinds this is a good one for the moderate baker.
