jim lahey's 'my bread'

I first came across Jim Lahey's book on amazon when I was searching for a Dutch oven.  I had just bought Tartine Bread (Chad Robertson) and was planning to try the recipe.  Am still waiting to beginthe starter (I travel a lot and am trying to figure out how to keep it going) and for my pan to be ordered (I live in India!).  But, I am going to order my Dutch oven and I wanted some feedback on whether I should also consider buying Jim Lahey's (or any other) book that has recipes for the Dutch oven.

I have Jim Lahey's book, (christmas book from my family that loves my fresh bread)

I have had good results using his technique and recipies. Simple and straight forward.

I recommend it.

Happy Baking!

I have a lof of bread books.  I enjoy My Bread for fast easy loaves. I would buy it again.  The cheese loaf is one of my favorites.

I already have a starter which is white, and is 100% hydration.  Would I need to start the starter in the book in order to do the recipes or can I use my own?  I have the book but haven't done any of the recipes yet.
