This is a beautiful book - if you are going to buy it - I urge you to purchase the Hardback version. The photographs are stunning and the recipes are wonderful. I was very lucky many years ago to attend a bread making course with Richard at his Bakery in Bath and it was not only educational but also funny, warm and entertaining. Richard's love for bread is contagious and having the opportunity to make bread and then sit and eat everything we had made over lunch with a great group of people is such a happy memory for me.
