How to make bread by Emmanuel Hadjiandreou

This truly is a beautiful book. I was lucky to pick one up on my recent visit back to Welbeck and to make it extra special, Emmanuel (my former tutor) signed me a copy.

Saturday night I spent the whole evening reading through each of the recipes (there are more than 60) and savouring over every one of the photographic illustrations. I could literally taste the caramalised crumb as I turned each page. Having spent the last year learning from Emmanuel's skills and passion in bread making, I have a collection of over 2000 photos myself, so I could appreciate the work that has gone into creating this book down to every last crumb!

This book is perfect as an introduction to bread making in your own home. Emmanuel guides you through the process with a step by step approach. No bread machine required. The selection of recipes are brilliant and it is immensely rewarding to share your results with friends and family. A bread lovers must have!

...or even better, take a trip up to The School of Artisan Food on the Welbeck Estate and purchase one from the man himself.
