I was a Hollywood fan (Paul that is ) until I found Dr Morton.
I'm well familiar with his father, but I am now becoming acquainted with the son.

Enough detail to make it useful, not too much to overload you. Every recipe has worked just as he said it would.
Only critism, How many raisins do I need in my sourdough starter? He omits to say :(

I bought this as a gift for my sister...I was given it as a gift at Christmas and found it gave me the most successful bread I have ever made. I even successfully made the croissants! Great book, clearly describing all the techniques needed (or not needed). Recipes start at the most simple and graduate through to much more complicated....I am still working my way through! I would heartily recommend this book to any aspiring baker!

HASH(0xa683475c) out of 5 stars Fool proof recipes July 27 2014
By Christina - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have never given a five star review on any book, but Brilliant Bread by James Morton deserves it! What I enjoy about the book, is that it is well organized and well written. He takes you on a journey of bread making from simpler, easy recipes, to the more complex ones, with detailed explanations, so you have a better understanding of the science behind the process. All the extra details are jovially written which is a joy to read.

Brilliant Bread has a clean layout and is filled with many photos that compliment the recipes nicely. I love how each recipe starts with the "Time spent in kitchen" and "time taken altogether" to make each recipe, it gives you an accurate idea of how much time you needed to spend at minimum before starting.

I have the Kindle version of the book because I couldn't wait to start baking and will no doubt get the printed version later on. I am glad I got the Kindle version, as I always have the recipes if I am on the go. The digital version of this book is excellent. I read it on my computer, iPad, Kindle and mobile phone with ease. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn how to bake bread, this is the best book to have. I have tried many different recipes for scones, white bread, pita breads, focaccia and pizza dough, and none beat James' recipes. Weighing your ingredients like he says, really makes all the difference but not only that, the whole process he uses is fool proof.

Five stars for me and I look forward to his next book and who knows, with a video or two?

HASH(0xa68349a8) out of 5 stars Fantastic book about bread and baking May 5 2014
By Gavin9470 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is one of the best books on bread making you will find - it is written in such a down to earth and practical way that you cannot go wrong. So many so-called experts on bread making forget that most people do not necessarily know the ins and outs of the process and like many people I always like to know why I am doing something and this book explains every step clearly throughout.

HASH(0xa6834be8) out of 5 stars Love This Book! June 18 2015

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This cookbook was a joy to read. The clear, concise directions make me feel I will be able to create these recipes myself. I can't wait to try almost every recipe and will update my review when I have baked a few loaves. P.S. I am buying his new cookbook based on how much I love this one. Keep writing James.

Best book on bread making I've ever seen. It's not only brilliant on bread making - very clear, concise instructions, putting in much needed details you rarely see - but an excellent read. Read it cover to cover. Something I've never done with a cook book before!
