Our customer reviews

I have received this book today in the mail and have been leafing through it excitedly. Having grown up in Switzerland and emigrated to Australia as an adult I was shocked at the quality of the bread available in supermarkets and the cost of anything considered 'artisan bread'. Time permitting, I do bake my own bread from time to time and I can't wait to try some of the recipes in this book. I do have my doubts about the authenticity of some of the recipes though. The reason for this is that the recipe for 'Salzbrezel' (Pretzel) - also called 'Laugenbrezel' - contains a major omission - the 'Salz' or 'Lauge'. This type of bread needs to be immersed in a 4% caustic soda solution (Natronlauge) between shaping and baking. This is what gives them their typical colour and flavour. The recipe leaves this step out altogether, creating something that is a pretzel in shape only. (If you can't get a suitable solution or don't want to handle such a reactive chemical in your kitchen you can dissolve 3 tablespoons of bicarb soda (baking soda) in 1 liter of boiling water. The flavour is not exactly the same, but it is an acceptable more
