You don’t have to be an experienced baker or even to have made bread before to start creating delicious loaves. In this fascinating book, photographed by Peter Cassidy, Jane aims to inspire you to start baking by explaining the basic techniques, demystifying the process and showing you, with step-by-step photography, how simple it is to make a huge variety of breads. The recipes come from the four corners of the globe, but they all have one thing in common—they are easy to follow and the result is so much better for you than anything you can buy in the supermarket. Choose from more than 50 recipes, such as pitta bread, soda bread, cinnamon buns, cheese rolls, rye bread and corn bread. Spanning wheat and the myriad other grains used from country to country, this book will take you on a journey on which you will learn how to make bread and understand its unique ability to bring people together to celebrate, share and enjoy it.
