Read my full review: http://bit.ly/123b0f3 or http://bit.ly/10jPpANMy opinion: What a beautiful cookbook this was. The book was loaded down with unusual, beautifully laid out and explained recipes for breads, soups and sandwiches that were divided into seasonal recipes. Now, I must admit that I did prefer the recipes for the sandwiches and breads over the soup recipes. Pictures of finished product were also plentiful. I think if I did have a criticism of the book, due to its difficulty, I would like to have seen more detailed breakdowns of working with yeast breads.
