Quite literally a life-changing book for me, this. In late 2008, I went on a course at Schumacher College run by this book’s author. By the end of the week, I was saying: “I didn’t know that they were doing that to my loaf!” I took my signed tome home and became a convert. As a result, when the charity Sustain advertised for a volunteer to run its Real Bread Campaign, co-founded with Whitley and launched just days after the course, I went along one lunch break, had a chat, went back to my office and quit my job. I’ve been there ever since. Oh, and as this is about cookbooks – yes, it has some killer recipes in it.

I'm a bread head, i love it - making it, eating it, id be lost without it. This book taught me so much about the ways of bread, it took my baking to a whole new level.

This book has taught me more about bread than any other. Quite simply, if you want to make and eat excellent bread, invest in a copy.
