If you're wanting a cookbook that has nearly every bread recipe known to man, this might be the one. The set up of the book is easy to follow and there are some excellent recipes (I haven't had a chance to try more than a few). Despite the size of this book, it is one of those paperbacks that has the soft spine so that it will actually stay open on the cupboard. The one drawback is that there are absolutely no photos of the recipes. There are some drawings that take you through some of the more complicated steps for some of the breads, but no images of the finished product. And unfortunately that is sometimes needed in order to convince me to try an unusual recipe, or at least catch my attention. All in all, I'd probably order it again.

I really enjoy this cookbook; I cook the banana bread recipe from this every time I get 3 mashy bananas. I keep running through different recipes, and I've still not gotten a bread disaster. I tend to mostly use my bread machine's dough cycle, and form the bread myself, but since I got a higher quality bread machine, the recipes are also working fabulously in the various machine cycles. I highly recommend this book; lack of illustrations seem to bother some, but it's not really been an issue for me.

This is the first of two books by the same name 'The Bread Bible' written by Beth Hensperger and published by Chronicle Books in 1999. The second book with this title, written by Rose Levy Beranbaum and published by W. W. Norton & Company in 2003 I have reviewed earlier, before I discovered this title.
This occurrence is actually a rare good fortune, as it gives us a chance to compare two essays of exactly the same subject and pick that effort which does the better job on the subject. Both authors appear to have ample credentials for the chuzpah required to write a book with such a pretentious title. Ms. Hensperger has written five other books on bread baking and Ms. Beranbaum has written three other large, well received books on baking, two of which are also 'bibles' on their topics.
Ms. Hensperger gives us 473 pages of text and 21 pages of index at $32.50 while Ms. Beranbaum gives us 608 pages of text and 21 pages of index for $35.00. Ms. Hensperger gives us 25 very useful introductory pages on equipment, flour, and general techniques. Ms. Beranbaum gives us 62 pages of what I considered to be a model of culinary writing on the ten essential steps to making bread. This is the first sign that Ms. Beranbaum is aiming at a much more sophisticated audience than Ms. Hensperger.
Ms. Hensperger gives us no color photographs or diagrams illustrating techniques. The few line drawings seem to be primarily for decoration. Ms. Beranbaum's book provides four sections of full color photographs of the baked products essayed in the book. She also provides many pages of expertly done line drawings illustrating baking techniques such as the 'business letter fold', layering foccacia with herbs, and making sticky buns. Other line drawings give very good pictures of baking equipment.

I've had great success with the recipes I've tried from this book. The Oatmeal Potato bread was hearty, delicious, and nutritious, and the Sweet Vanilla Challah is still getting compliments from friends. I bake up a batch of the banana nut muffins almost weekly.
This would be a 5 star-book except for its woeful lack of illustrations, which would make loaf shaping much easier (I still can't figure out how to make a "turban" based on her written instructions) and/or photographs of the final product.

What more can a person say? Everything you wanted to know about bread is here. My family loves bready things and this book supplies it all.
If you like to bake bread or want to learn how, buy this book.
Thank you Beth!

Although the recipes sounded good and turned out correctly, the flavor was ordinary and a let down. I wouldn't buy this book if you are looking for extraordinary.

The first two recipes I've wanted to try have had errors. One didn't call for milk in the ingredients, but did in the instructions. The instructions for a sesame twist bread made with semolina don't really explain how to twist it. This is one that really could have profited from some kind of illustration. Another irritation is that neither the table of contents nor the index have the page numbers of the recipes--only the page numbers of the sections. Finally, a bread "bible" should really have a better recipe for French bread, made with a fermented starter.

A very good selection of recipes. 2 minor quibbles (which, I should point out, I have with many cookbooks):
1: In recipes, please don't tell the baker to use "quick-cooking imported Irish oatmeal" when just saying "rolled oats" will do. If the author would like to do a chapter on the value of using high quality ingredients, splendid, but it grows tiresome to read "fine yellow cornmeal, preferably stone ground" when simply "cornmeal" would do.
2: More fat does not a better bread or muffin make. Nuff said.
Those issues aside, this is a very nice selection of recipes.
