David, Elizabeth - English Bread and Yeast Cookery

Review :

An overwhelmingly impressive book. Not so much a cookbook, as a historical survey of most types of European bread since always. Yes, it has recipes (many dating from the 16th or 17th century) but more than that it's a detailed description of ovens, flours, techniques, etc. A tour de force that I really had to add to my bookshelf.
