I bought, read and admired this book decades ago, and used it extensively to further my bread making expertise. I lost the book long ago but continued with making breads for my family and friends. Recently I saw the book on offer in Kindle and thought I should renew an old acquaintance. Frankly, I was disappointed. In particular, the characterization of sour dough as "fussy" is bizarre, and the recipes are incoherent. This book helped me on my path, but I''ve left it far behind.

This is one of the best books written on bread making with wonderful illustrations. Lots of basic info with more advanced loaves as well. The directions are well thought out and written for all types of bread (kneaded, sweet, batter, egg, fried, etc) that anyone can master, enjoy and impress others with. Several of the loaves make wonderful gifts.

The book was purchased used (no new copies were available) and while it said it was in "good" condition, it was much less than that. The cover was ripped and the upper pages where soiled by old dust and water marks. This was a gift for a young baker, I am sure the book will be used and well loved in the years to come but it was disappointing to hand the book to them in that condition.

Back in 1976, I was a young, just out of the nest, natural living mother. I tried the old family recipes for white bread and those ubiquitous all-bran rolls, but I really wanted to get into real baking. My mother had never bought a bag of whole wheat flour. A friend who owned a bookstore and had a big family recommended this book, with its easy to follow recipes, and James Beard''s chatty, down to earth style explaining the triumphs and trials of home baking. At one time, I made every recipe in this book over the course of a year. The sourdough starter I did get from a friend, but used Beard''s recipe. I borrowed her handmill for William Melville Childs'' Health Bread. This is the fourth copy of the book I have bought. It was too easily borrowed and not returned by neighbors, and underappreciated by partners who occasionally purged the bookshelves. If you get a copy, hang on to it! Beard takes all the anxiety out of bread baking.

This was my first bread book and while I have collected a few (ok, maybe an entire shelf ) over the years I still reach for this one. (this copy is a gift)

All of the yeast breads are excellent. I can''t count how many times I''ve made the no knead whole wheat a completely different bread than Jim Leahy''s (also wonderful but needs to be started a day or more before you want to eat it). You can stir together Beard''s no knead bread after work and it will be ready to eat before a reasonable bed time. All of the oatmeal breads are great sandwich breads, far superior to commercial bread and not difficult. There are recipes for white, rye, pumpernickel and a few oldies that are not in fashion but still delicious.

If you''d like delicious bread in a few hours not a few days, if you don''t bake often enough (or can''t be bothered) to keep a starter fed and active, if you want bread that is excellent but not precious and if you''re not interested in accumulating a lot of equipment this may be the book for you.

Beard on Bread by author James Beard is an excellent bread baking primer as Beard details the needed information on how to bake bread. His book may have been published in 1973, but it contains timeless information. In fact, I''ve made several kinds of bread using Beard''s recipes and techniques found in this cookbook.

You will find the following chapters in Beard on Bread:

Acknowledgements
Introduction
Observations
Basic Yeast Bread and Other White-Flour Breads
Whole-Meal Breads
Sweetened Breads and Coffee Cakes
Egg Breads
Batter Breads
Baking Powder and Soda Breads
Rolls
Flat Breads
Filled Breads
Fried Cakes
Griddle Breads
Index

The table of contents is interactive so this will help you find the recipe you need. You will also find numerous drawn images depicting recipes.

Some of the recipes you will find in Beard''s cookbook include:

White Free-Form Loaf
Buttermilk White
Salt-Rising
Norwegian Whole-Wheat
Sourdough Rye
Challah
Portuguese Sweet
Sally Lunn
Cream Biscuits
Boston Brown
Sweet Potato Rolls
Pita
Pizza Loaf
Maple Bars
Girdle Scones
Yeast Griddle Cakes or Pancakes

I have made the Challah, Portuguese Sweet Bread and Cream Biscuits and all the recipes were easy to make.

Recommend.

If you like cook books with a lot of pretty pictures, this is not the book for you. Instead, what you get are a lot of James Beard tested bread recipes and commentary. Truly it is becoming one of my favorite "go-to" bread books and even if I don''t make all, or even most, of the recipes in the book it''s great fun and inspirational to browse through all of them and read JB''s comments about them. But be forewarned - he''s not a big fan of sourdough and thinks that it''s overrated as a means of leavening bread.

Very interesting reliable source for making bread.
Lots of good recipes, most with ingredients that are easy to get.
Some use grains that are harder to find. Nevertheless there is enough variety to keep you interested even if you can not use each one.
I now have tried two recipes - the microwave muffin bread which is very unusual and actually works.
Also the soda bread which flopped for me, but it was quite possibly an error on my part.
Lots of good techniques carefully explained.

This is my back-up for a 1970''s hard back copy that has been well used and is beginning to come apart. I would have put the condition down as unused as it was so good,but on reading through, it would appear that the previous owner had only tried to make pizza and had even had to annotate the recipe! Very pleased and delighted with book and service. Many Thanks.
