I love Richard Bertinet’s approach to bread. I’ve baked most of the recipes in this book and considering that most cookbooks have at most one recipe cooked from them, this is the biggest compliment I can give. All the recipes work. Whenever I read his instructions, I do it in a French accent in my head. Great photography by Jean Cazals also.
Patissier and chocolatier
Richard Bertinet is one of the most famed bakers in the UK. He runs a school and also a shop in bath, which are both critically acclaimed. There are a lot of books about bread in the UK but ‘Dough’ has to be one of the best. It is very well constructed and easy to use, very accessible to both the keen amateur and also the professional.
Richard's techniques will change the way you bake bread. And, more importantly, make you want to bake bread. A lot
