A bread recipe book with just the essentials in text and photographs. The author provides a helpful "troubleshooting" list to help overcome common problems. This cookbook uses metric measures and British terminology that may be unfamiliar to some Canadian readers. The book concludes with an informative chapter on how to build a clay oven.

I enjoyed using this book but found many of the bread recipes required more water than was given in the recipe - frequently half again as much. Also I had to adapt for non-instant yeast. But I now have a much better idea of the process which should make results more predictable.

British. Many measurements are by weight, although there are conversion charts near the back. Many recipes use non-wheat flours.
