Hello From Oklahoma City

Hi Everyone,  I've visited this site often for answers to bread questions but hadn't joined until I decided to make pretzels.  It was exciting to find a thread started in 2005 still being used and commented on so passionately more than 5 years later!  I'm a somewhat experienced bread baker who is a devotee of Peter Reinhart.  Richard Bertinet's Dough was my inspiration but, sadly, many of the recipes in his first American edition have errors.  I learned this after traveling to Bath for classes.  He's a wonderful baker and teacher but I hesitate to buy his books anymore.  Does anyone else have problems with his books?

see no prolems with it, it came with a CD showing how to make the sweet dough, and I've made that and it turned out wonderful.


I don't bake a lot of bread just yet, doing a lot of other stuff, so things on the kitchen front have been not happening, but the rest of stuff is mostly out of the way, so can start playing in the kitchen now.

Glad you're having success with it!  Richard said it was just the 1st U.S. edition.  The mistakes were caught and corrected for the next printing. I love his technique.
