    I was excited to receive this book. It seems to be as thick as an encyclopedia. Anyhow, it is very detailed to the point that you feel you’re getting a science lesson on ingredients in some sections. The cons I would have to say is that out of all the recipes it seems that I am only able to use a handful of them since the others call for uncommon ingredients such as Xanthium Gum and some flours that I have never even heard of. I have tried locating these ingredients and even gone to the expensive organic holistic stores but no luck. So now whenever I go grocery shopping I'm sure to walk by the baking aisle to see if there is any glimmer of hope that I find some of these rare/unobtainable ingredients.

    Has almost any type of bread you could ever think of. I tried about seven or eight and found them easy to understand and the bread came out very good. Didn't know that there were that many types of flour in the world. I do like the just dough preset because I can shape the bread for hard rolls, Hamburger or hot dogs buns. Also this make experimenting very easy. Glad I made this purchase.
