The delicious smell of freshly baked bread is always an irresistible temptation - especially when it comes from your own kitchen.

Clear instructions and helpful photographs will take you through every stage of the bread-making process, and, so that you can see what you're aiming for, there's a picture of every finished loaf. As well as more than 70 recipes, the book gives the background of the breads and their ingredients, outlining the basic techniques of mixing, kneading and baking, and describing the equipment you may need, from traditional loaf tins to automatic bread-making machines.
