This book has changed our lives! -

I bought this book about 18 months ago. I was sceptical reading the title but it was reasonably priced, so I thought I'd give it a go. I've not been disappointed! I'm originally from Germany. I have lived here for such a long time, however, I've always struggled with the lack of "proper" bread in this country (unless you're prepared to fork out for deli stuff). We're not relying on shop-bought bread any more. Since we got the book, we only bought bread a handful of times. We bake 2-3 times a week. It's so easy and effortless. Everyone who's tasted our bread has loved it and it makes me happy that my children grow up appreciating proper bread!

"Love it... but have some common sense people!" -

There has been a lot of criticism about this book and I think the title is misleading... but surely nobody really believes they are going to have a hot loaf on the table 5 mins after going to the cupboard to get the ingredients out?? This book is more about a method than recipes and guess what? It works! In short, all you have to do is mix a few ingredients together, let it sit for 2-4 hours then refrigerate. Every time you need a loaf/pizza/rolls it should take no longer than 5 mins to prepare... plus cooking of course. It's easy and adaptable and I've made the best pizza ever using it - and I've been trying to get a good dough for 20 years now!Approach this book with an open mind and I don't think you'll be disappointed. It could revolutionise your baking too!

"Some of the best bread I have ever tasted" -

You can't make bread in five minutes! However, once you have some dough stored in your fridge, you are an hour away from the kind of bread that would normally cost you about £2.50 in a posh deli. I've made bread for years, and this is the best I've ever made. I found the basic recipe on the internet over a year ago and I've had spelt dough on the go ever since. I was so excited to get the book and see the other recipes - I made baguettes the day it arrived, and they were perfect. You may have to play with the recipe a bit to get it to suit the flour you are using, but it is more than worth it.

"Dissapointed" -

I agree with the other review that the title is misleading... it really wasn't what I expected and I wish I had read the reviews before buying.
