I have to say their breads are the BEST BREADS I ever tasted worldwide. My favorite is the olive bread followed by the cheese bread, among others. However, I was expecting this book to reveal more recipes of their bread and not just one main formula and ways to adjust it in order to get the recipes from the book, which is not the same then getting the formula/recipe for the bread it self.
I was expecting a breads book as well, therefore, I am slightly disappointed. I hope that Mr. Kaiser, do not delay on sending out the recipes for the delicious bread he sales in his Boulangeries "Maison Kaiser".
Even though, the book deserves to be purchased and used as well, because everything that comes out is good. I recommend buying it together with the "Eric Kayser's Sweet and Savory Tarts" which I rate 5 stars. SO GOOD!
That said, I've tried several delicious recipes that have given me ideas for others! So, it's still a wonderful book, just don't expect to learn how to make Eric Kayser's bread!
