This is a book which is all heart! It is amazing to read and I haven't been able to put it down! It holds the reader in thrall even if you do not share the same passion for breads as the author. Amazingly well written. The recipes are also extensive (though I did miss the burger bun recipe and I wish more stuffed bread recipes were there )!But that is really nit picking! The author talks about yeast and its type and various types of flours,which was really an eye opener of sorts! There are the usual type of breads like white and multi grain , but she has also covered croissant, doughnuts, pizza dough , focaccias ,artisan breads in the international group. Its the Indian breads which left me in a tizzy. The writer really deserves a standing ovation for her research in the latter group. There is a very touching anecdote about a Goan poder (thats Goan for baker,for the uninitiated like me).. What really irritated me was the condition of the book and its binding.This book deserved an A class treatment. Instead , you get a book which has been carelessly bound,thus destroying many carefully drawn sketches. The photographs too could have been more visually appealing.Thankfully,no art paper! But for the serious and not so serious baker,do get this book. You will not regret it.

I loved this book and have given it as a gift to many friends. Its engaging, easy to follow style makes break making less intimidating, even for tricky loaves like ciabatta. Most importantly, she uses ingredients found easily in India. This book is one of my go-to resources for bread making.

I have made my first bread following the theories given in this book. The bread came out wonderful, but was a little dense. I will slowly correct it using trouble shooting given in the book. A must buy for every Indian home maker. Love breads!!!

Great book for wife who's a baking nut, and a good gift for the kitchen generally. The author has many years of experience fine tuning the bread recipes to account for the hot humid bombay climate - her tips really work.
