DiMuzio Wife purchased the book for her baking class It contains interesting experiments such as making two batches of dough and for instance comparing what would happen if your over proofed or under proofed the bread Learn by actions instead of just reading a text, which is different from most baking books However, the way concepts are described in the book are not as straight forward as other books.

For the most part I found this book easy to understand and very informative As stated by some other reviews it does contain some unforgivable errors I will point out one that other reviewers seem to have missed The adjusted formula for Sourdough bread in the Appendix of Formulas on page 232 2010 copyright edition is VERY WRONG The following weights appy to the 5 qt formula but in general apply to the 20 qt as well First the sum of the weight of the ingredients exceeds the total yield, 2207 grams versus 1700 grams Further the firm levian formula calls for 300 g flour, 180 g water, 300 g ripe levian From this formula you are to exclude 300 g in the final dough, meaning you should use 480 g of the final levian The adjusted formula for the dough calls for 427 g of levian and 480 g of instant yeast and 0 g of sal Good recipies and easy to follow Would recommend this to anyone wanting to bake their own bread Good buy for this price.
I was assigned this textbook for Breads class and was impressed with the information and layout of the text.
First of all, baking and especially bread baking is a science This book does a good job of explaining the ins and outs of bread baking so that the reader will gain not only the knowledge of how, but also what, when, and why Each chapter offers a different aspect of the bread baking process and discusses in depth the processes happening during this step and the science behind it Likewise, there is an experiment lab at the end of each chapter that emphasizes what was learned This is beneficial because bread baking is less about the specific recipe and about the ingredients and the steps Most other culinary textbooks offe Didactic and through, DiMuzio teaches you how to bake great bread, either at home or commercially, to great success.
Well organized and researched, his book cover everything one needs to know and much , giving you a sound foundation on baking, bread and all kinds of dough.
PS After further reading of the Kindle edition I got to an almost fatal flaw in many recipes the books refers you to page 196 instead of repeating the instructions But the Kindle edition does not offer true pages, and with no references to where 196 is, or even a clue to which chapter it belongs, we are left with no instructions toward, for instance, for how long to bake the bread or at which temperature the oven should be So, until the publisher fixes this mistake, I d suggest you either avoid the Kindle version altogether although it s perfectly good otherwise , or prepare yourself to use the force when baking s
I v got many recipes for bread and also have been baking for about 10 years I wanted to know about what happens when you do a certain thing and why it is necessary or how that makes a difference to your dough This book explains about different methods in different processes and helps you understand about the reasons behind bread making This will be my bible for a long time I will recommend this book to those who love making bread and want to know than just recipes and basic procedures.
This book contains much details and explain bakery in science unlike most other books which focus mainly on recipes, however, this book uses many jargons.
Organization of the chapter Sometimes there s a need to refer to the later chapter to understand the previous one and because of this it s difficult to read and understand the concept described.
This book mostly describes bread making using machine for mixing rather than mixing by hand and kneading which is why it favors for industrial or shop baking rather than home baking.
