    Bread: A Baker's Book of Techniques and Recipes by Jeffrey Hamelman (Tuirgin)
    Tuirgin: I purchased Hamelman's Bread after I'd worked with BBA for a while. Hamelman's book does less hand-holding, but is more thorough in describing shaping techniques as well as the practical technical information on additives, sourdough, ingredient temperatures, etc. I don't think I would have wanted to start with Hamelman's book, and I wouldn't have wanted to finish with Reinhart's book.

Really loved the technique demonstrated in this book. Did not make time to try any of the recipes but I will borrow this one again and try in the future. ( )

A really excellent bread guide. Lots of great recipes, particularly the breads of Europe. But this is a serious book, with a lot of recipes typically taking several days before they reach the oven. However the results are worth it. ( )

I think this is the best bread book ever. Great recipes include Light Wheat Bread, Napoletana Pizza Dough, Challah, Cinnamon and Sticky Buns, Cinnamon Raisin Walnut Bread, and best of all . . . Potato Rosemary Bread. Haven't had a loser recipe yet. ( )

This was my first bread book. It's a solid starter book with a good assortment of recipes. The book could do with more extensive demonstrations of specific techniques. Hamelman's Bread is a bit more thorough in describing the handling and feel of the dough. ( )

The best book about baking I have ever found. This book goes deep into the art and chemistry of making great bread. I recommend this to all new bakers who want to understand how to make good bread. ( )
