Brilliant Bread Synopsis

James Morton was surely the people's favourite to win 2012's Great British Bake Off series - with his Fairisle tank tops, spectacles and eccentric cake designs, this softly spoken Scottish medical student won the viewers' hearts if not the trophy. James's real passion is bread-making. He is fascinated by the science of it, the taste of it, the making of it. And in Brilliant Bread he communicates that passion to everyone, demystifying the often daunting process of proper bread making. James uses supermarket flour and instant yeast - you can save money by making your own bread. You don't even have to knead! It just takes a bit of patience and a few simple techniques. Using step by step photos, James guides the reader through the how-to of dough making and shaping, with recipes ranging from basic loaves through flatbreads, sourdoughs, sweet doughs, buns, doughnuts, focaccia and pretzels. Inspiring and simple to follow, with James's no-nonsense advice and tips, this book will mean you never buy another sliced white loaf again.

The Good Book Guide Review

Known from the Great British Bake Off television show, which he was unlucky not to win, Morton is perhaps the UK’s leading authority on bread making. In this, his first book, he shares his passion with readers and encourages them to have a go at baking their own confections. With infectious enthusiasm he shows how it can be fun and rewarding to make bread at home – from ordinary loaves to buns, pretzels, flatbreads and many other varieties. His recipes are well set out and easy to follow.
