A Month Of Cookbooks - Day Six


Bread

By Christine Ingram & Jennie Shapter

Published by Lorenz Books, 2006

This 512 page book is my Bread bible!

This beautiful, fully illustrated book is divided equally between traditional hand bread-making and bread machine bread-making. The first section is devoted to  handmade breads from different countries around the world, the second section gives amazing and unusual recipes for bread-making machines.

If you are looking for a recipe for Panini all'Olio, Tandoori Rotis, Moroccan Ksra, Fresh Tomato & Basil Loaf, Pikelets or Cranberry & Orange Bread, the odds are high that you will find it here in this book of over 250 recipes.

Every step of the bread-making process is explained clearly  and every recipe is fully illustrated in colour photographs - from baking tins to ingredients and  history to techniques.

This book is available in a number of different covers/formats; mine is a hardback with a dust wrapper, and I bought it in a sale for only a third of the original cover price, but it would be well worth the advertised price, if you want to make unusual bread.
