"Never enough cook books" is my motto. One might call it unreasonable, having a look at my shelves groaning under the weight of the cook books in several languages, but any enthusiastic cook and cook book collector will understand me (I hope). Earlier this week I have reviewed an excellent cook book on bread- see my review of Perfecting Sourdough. This book was written by Jane Mason, founder of Virtuous Bread.
It is an "ultimate companion for those wanting to master the art of baking with starters and wild yeast".
There are forty two recipes in total including basic breads (for example, ciabatta and French bread) and some truly fancy ones (Jasmine Tea buns sound particularly enticing, so does an Austrian Christmas bread).
I like that there are pages of possible problems and solutions, I find them very useful.
I baked a savoury gingerbread with molasses, following the recipe from the book, and it was a delicious bread.
Lovely people from ApplePress have offered a copy of this excellent cook book as a giveaway prize for my blog readers.
