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..

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.
