This is not a book you may want to consider if you are going carbs-free for the January period but when you come back into the fold, Bread is a lovely book for anyone who loves to bake. With over 60 recipes and heaps of experience and knowledge packed into every page, baker Dean Brettschneider covers all you really need to know about making bread, including a lovely easy way with sour dough.
But there’s more than just fancy loaves, I am now hooked on Dampers -giant savory scones- hand dropped scones with jam in them (who knew?) and the easiest potato and rosemary focaccia. Published by Jacqui Small Books, it’s comfort-reading for your cookery library. Buy Bread here
