Practical Step-by-Step Guide to Baking Bread by Christine Ingram

The delicious smell of freshly baked bread is always an irresistible temptation - especially when it comes from your own kitchen. The step-by-step recipes in this volume make it simple for you to bake appetizing breads from around the world. Clear instructions and helpful photographs will take you through every stage of the bread-making process, and, so that you can see what you're aiming for, there's a picture of every finished loaf. As well as more than 70 recipes, the book gives the background of the breads and their ingredients, outlining the basic techniques of mixing, kneading and baking, and describing the equipment you may need, from traditional loaf tins to automatic bread-making machines.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

Insightful reader reviews and unbiased recommendations. I don't know how I chose books before Lovereading! An essential for all book lovers.

Sarah Harper

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.

Val Rowe

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!

Joan Hill

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.
