I found many of the recipes here just flavour variations. However their sourdough recipe is pretty much my standard recipe now (well, in truth my recipe is a hydrid of this and Richard Bertinet's recipe). The apple and cinnamon loaf is pretty good too!!

Bourke Street Bakery is the place we go most Saturday mornings to buy our bread for the week. They make fantastic sourdough bread and equally fantastic sweet and savoury baked goodies. This book has recipes for all of their best loved offerings. I've decided that I would rather just buy the bread than attempt to make my own using a sourdough starter, but I've used the recipes to make things such as ginger brulee tart to soem acclaim. This is a great book!
