After being so disappointed with Reinhart' Crust and Crumb, I bought this book and I found it really good, as it covers most of the imagined types of bread, including national specialties. It is clearly written, comes with nice pictures and is easy to use. The only thing I don't like about it is not using metric system. All the recipes use the cup/spoon approximative measures. All the temperatures are in F degrees. It looks this book is destined only to bakers living in US, LOL

I got this book out of the library and tried many of the recipes before buying it. Perfect bread, simple instructions and that heavenly smell of fresh bread in the house.

Ultimate Bread is one of the better yet easy to use bread baking books on the market. For the first time bread baker it is user friendly and offers numerous recipes which are fun as well as delicious. For the experienced baker it is a welcome relief from the over written 500 page monster found on the shelves of todays book stores. It also has beautiful photographs which alone are worth the purchase.

As I sit here dreaming of living in France and visiting French Bakeries, Rendezvous a Paris from Starbucks is playing in the background. Yesterday I made homemade bread and I can promise you there is nothing quite like baking your own bread even if you employ the help of your loyal bread machine. Although, one imagines there is nothing quite like freshly baked Pain de Seigle. If you have ever watched A Year in Provence, you can't help dreaming about baking your own baguette's in Provence.
Bread really is a universal food. This "photographic gallery" reveals the variety of breads. There are as seemingly large as life pictures of the breads. Everything from the continental classics such as Tuscan Focaccia scented with rosemary to sweet enriched reads studded with spices and fruit. You will also find flat breads from the Middle East and rustic country loaves from France. Sigh
This is an exciting resource written by authors who are experts in bread baking. Eric Treuill was born in Cahors in southwest France and first became interested in breadmaking when he worked as a mitron in his uncle's boulangerie. Ursula Ferrigno grew up on her father's vegetable and olive-producing farm in southern Italy.
"Ursula remembers the hot summer evenings when her grandmother would light the wood-fired oven on the terrace of their family home in Campania. She recalls the sweet, yeasty fragrance of the seemingly magically growing dough and its soft, springy texture as she formed it into a round, for it was a family tradition that each person shape and top his or her own pizza."
After a brief introduction to the Fundamentals of Breadmaking a world of possibilities is revealed in the next few chapters.

I have several bread books on my shelf, but this book is the first one I pull out every time. It has become my ultimate reference on bread making techniques. The pictures are clear and lavish, and easy to follow, especially when it comes to shaping the bread. Almost every recipe has a picture of the finished product; clear, concise directions; and on the right hand margins, headings for proofing time, yield, oven temp., etc.
While bread making is simple and rewarding, it takes a lot of time. However, with this book, you'll be feeling like a professional bread baker in no time. Must-try recipes include brioche, challah, the bread and butter pudding (made from bread you made yourself!), and the Hungarian potato bread.

I recently purchased this book at Barnes & Nobel's, and really like it. I am making my second bread tonight. I was very happy with my first basic bread recipe, and for someone like me with little or no experience it turned out good. The huge color photo's in the book really help, and all the many types of bread around the world are really neat. And there are variations with almost every one, which really extends the already long list of recipe's. It also covers all the cooking items to use. A really good book from start to finish to learn to make very good bread the first time, and lots of bread types & options to do with it after. For more experienced chefs, there's still a lot of recipe's & tips...

Ever at a loss for something to make for dinner? Just pick up this delight of a book and thumb through a few pages, by the time you've gone very far, you'll not only know what to make for dinner, but for breakfast and lunch for many days to come.
Filled with beautiful photos of each bread, the instructions are the clearest, easiest I've ever encountered in a cookbook. My copy is worn and stained and holds a place of prominence in my kitchen bookshelf, just thinking about it writing this, I'm just gonna have to go make a filled focaccia today! A two crusted pizza type of bread, it is so easy to make and you'll get rave reviews from all who get to share it.
The other thing I like about this book is their selection of hearty peasant type of farm breads. No haute cuisine here, just great good bread, buy it with the confidence you'll produce things that look just like the luscious photos!
