I am so excited by this cookbook! I love to make breads for festivals and celebrations, and there are so many options here!

I am especially interested in the Christmas season breads from northern Europe- they are part of my heritage, and I'm always curious about variants.

But- where I grew up there was a significant Eastern European and Slavic presence, and I have missed many of those treats so much since moving to New England!

While at least half of the book is Europe-based, there are fascinating recipes from Africa, the Americas, and even one from Asia. I appreciate the lore included with each recipe.

It's a well-designed book with clear and thorough directions for each recipe, and illustrations when needed.

When I began making bread a dozen or more years, this was the first cookbook I bought. I've added other books over the years and Oppenneer's is no longer the most complete in my library or even my most favourite, but it's a perfect book for beginner to intermediate hand bakers. There's a good mix of recipes, it's clearly written and there's a balanced amount of general text on technique and ingredients. I still often refer to it and a couple of my favourite recipes began life here.
