Every recipe I've tried in this cookbook has been a winner. ( )

Lots of good tips at the beginning and throughout, with the occasional small line drawing illustration. The recipes for rye and pumpernickel breads looked tempting, but there is a long ingredient list for each. I tried the whole wheat (not a huge success) and the potato bread (a lot of work, but it makes two loaves - I did one in a tin and one as a boule - and was fabulous). ( )

A great resource, with good recipes that can sometimes be unreliable. We have also spotted some discrepancies where the ingredients in the list and cooking instructions don't match!

Otherwise most of the recipes we've tried have so far been winners. ( )

These are great breads: relatively simple to make with absolutely great doughs. If you bake much bread, you will recognize the wonderful quality of her dough - firm, easy to handle, with that wonderful yeast tang.

This book belongs in the kitchen of every serious baker. New to breads? This is a great place to begin.

Here's a sample of included recipes that I've tried and love: Sweet Vanilla Challah, Italian Walnut-Raisin Whole-Wheat Bread, Buttermilk Corn Bread [the best ever! try adding the suggested pecans], Bread with Three Chocolates, Pear Spice Coffeecake. ( )
