A great introduction to taking bread baking at home more seriously and a good travelogue to boot. I found it helpful for learning how to make a sourdough starter. There are plenty of recipes that use sourdough in here, and plenty that use fresh (or dried) yeast, different grains, etc. Dan travelled around, learning from professional and home bakers, which he used to create his own recipes. There are a wide variety - from a basic milk loaf to breadsticks and most things in between.

Thankfully measurements are in metric (a must for accuracy) and if you want to try before you buy, Dan writes for the Guardian. There are plenty of his recipes for free on the site, though its not as good as having a book open in front of you that falls open at your favourite recipes with notes in the margin. Special recommendation for the Maize loaf and Apple & Oat bread. ( )

Very interesting book, with a collection of unique recipes. His kneading method is the easiest I know. Great photography and recipes. ( )
