Richard Bertinet is renowned for his revolutionary and inspirational approach to breadmaking and Dough is an invaluable and beautiful guide to making simple, contemporary bread. Richard brings fun to breadmaking and with his easy approach, you will never want to buy a supermarket loaf again.
Each of the five chapters begins with a slightly different dough - White, Olive, Brown, Rye and Sweet - and from this 'parent' dough you can bake a vast variety of breads really easily. Try making Fougasse for lunch, bake a Ciabatta to impress, create Tomato, Garlic & Basil Bread for a delicious canape or show off with homemade Doughnuts - each recipe is a delight.
Richard Bertinet set up his Bertinet Kitchen in 2005 and Bertinet Bakery in 2011 and his bread is now widely available at farmshops, delis and Waitrose across the south of the UK. He trained as a baker in his native Brittany and has over 20 years' experience as a chef and baker who teaches principally in his own school in Bath. His first two books won numerous awards both in the UK and the US including IACP Cookery Book of the Year and James Beard Award.
