    The reviewer, Amanda, June 11, 2010, said the recipes do not have salt in them. The recipes actually do have salt and have perfect flavor. The only exception is the Tuscan bread which is saltless by tradition. I love baking bread and love this book. Besides the wonderful recipes, it has lovely color photos for each recipe. Peter Reinhart will also answer emails if you have questions about any recipe in the book. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to bake artisan bread. While the creation of the starter may sound a bit daunting, you can find other directions for making a starter more simply and any starter works with the recipes. If you have only a very little time to devote to baking, Peter Reinhart has another book, Artisan Breads Every Day, which simplifies the creation of artisan breads and reduces the time you need to spend in the kitchen.

    I borrowed this book from a friend and lived it so much I had to get a copy for myself. Anyone who has ever wondered why bread rises, how to manipulate recipes and more will agree that this book is a must-have.

    by bookwomanAnnie

    This book has a complete college course crammed between its covers. If you want to understand how to make professional bread, this book is the one to buy. The recipes I've made so far from this book are accurate and the directions clear.
