Review by

If you can thing of something to make which either contains yeast, or is some form of bread it will be covered here. David goes through the history of bread making and the background of each form of bread etc is explained. The recipes are often short, and could confuse someone not familiar with the methods used. However they invariably work, and the collection is as near to definitive as its scoe allows. A wonderful book for anyone who loves bread.
