Publisher Comments:

For all those who do not want to eat mass produced sliced bread filled with chemicals and preservatives help is at hand. Chef, teacher and baker extraordinaire Richard Bertinet gets back to basics and shows that, far from being hard or time-consuming, baking bread is quick and easy. Dough breaks down the bread making process into easy-to-follow and achievable steps using just four simple ingredients yeast, flour, water and salt. An instructional DVD accompanies the book to help illustrate and ease the process of working with dough. In his book Bertinet explores five different doughs White, Olive, Brown, Rye and Sweet and shows how from these parent doughs you can bake a vastvariety of breads really easily. Though the doughs vary, the technique for making each one is identical. The beauty of it is that it takes no time at all to fill a bread basket with, say, striking looking Fougasse, Breadsticks or Spicy Moroccan rolls (from the White Dough chapter) or Poppy Seed Stars, Sesame plaits and chunks of Pecan and Cranberry, or Cardamom and Prune bread (from the Brown chapter) and no one will guess that they are all part of the same family. Most of the breads take less than 1 hour to bake and many of the recipes can be part-baked and frozen, ready to finish off in the oven at any time.

Synopsis:

Richard Bertinet takes you on a journey of development, so that once you have mastered the simple recipes, you can use them to create more innovative and advanced creations. All the breads take less than one hour, with advice on how to make bread in advance, use the freezer and above all, comes the knowledge from a master-baker of how to make the perfect dough.

Marianne Samuel, July 3, 2010 (view all comments by Marianne Samuel)
After reading “Dough” I found out it is the book I was looking for long ago to get over the baking barriers I always had in mind. It actually eliminates the fear of handling sticky unmanageable dough through step by step photos and detailed explanation of the technique which helps in enhancing the performance and avoid usual mistakes; i.e. not only ingredients and recipes. The enclosed DVD is part of the useful introduction which shows how Richard himself handles the dough. The book is divided into 5 chapters with a helpful introduction. The introduction introduces you to the essential baking tools, the common ingredients for almost all kinds of dough and the dough handling methods. The 5 chapters are basically divided into 5 dough kinds; White, Olive, Brown, Rye and Sweet. In each chapter the relevant dough is explained first, followed by the bread types derived from it. There is also couple of supplementary recipes that may be required for stuffing or topping. This makes “Dough” a real helpful book for baking professionals as well as for beginners. Finally I would like to mention that you need to read the introdution and recipe you intend to start with thoroughly before you start, in order to be well prepared, furnished with necessary tools and required space and have developed a sequence of work in mind.
Enjoy baking with Richard.
