If bread is the staff of life, then this book by renowned artisanal baker Daniel Leader is every home baker's must-have cookbook. Featuring an amazing array of incredible delicacies made with yeast, Simply Great Breads is the perfect combination of easy and sophisticated recipes, with the keys to unlocking basics of working with yeasted doughs. Who can resist a collection of 50 mouthwatering treats, essential recipes for everyone who loves bread?
The menu includes must-bake breakfast classics like crumpets and English muffins, and the three irresistible Bs: bagels, brioche, and bialys ... timeless favorites such as Parker House rolls, ciabatta, and challah ... plus waffles, cider doughnuts, beignets, babka, and monkey bread.

DANIEL LEADER was one of the first champions of artisanal bread baking in this country; he founded the first Bread Alone Bakery in the Hudson Valley in the early '80s. Now a classic, Leader's book, "Bread Alone," won the IACP award for best baking book in 1994. In 2008, Leader won his second IACP award for "Local Breads," also written with Lauren Chattman. LAUREN CHATTMAN is the author of 12 cookbooks, including the recent "Cake Keeper Cakes" and "Panini Express," which she co-wrote with Leader.

I was very happy paying $3.50 plus standard shipping/handling for a "very good" condition used copy on the marketplace. But, as I'm cheap, I don't think it's worth $22 for a new hardcover edition or $13 for an ebook.
28 recipes, plus some variations. English muffins, crumpets, Brioche muffins, cinnamon sugar spirals, Bialys, bagels, Parker House rolls, biscuits, ham and cheese filled crescent rolls, crisp bread sticks, ciabatta rolls, grilled savory or sweet ciabatta, Navajo fry bread, whole wheat challah, pizza dough for grilling, grape schiacciata, savory yeasted tart with onion confit, Mana'eesh, yeasted pancakes, yeast-raised waffles, jelly-filled berliners, cider doughnuts, banana doughnuts with maple-walnut glaze, stone fruit beignets, fontina bombolini, yeasted coffee cake with simple almond topping, chocolate babka, caramel monkey bread.
Measurements are given in ounces, grams, and by volume.
I'm also a fan of the author's "Local Breads".
There are about 46 recipes in the book, including "variations" of master recipes. There are photos for many of the finished products, accompanied by clear instructions, even though in some cases the ingredients are on one page and the directions are on the next. Leader has included equivalence guides, and provides measurements not only in cups, but in grams, as well. Additionally, he has a temperature guide in the book to accommodate those using Fahrenheit, Centigrade and gas mark ovens.
The main chapters are: Classic Breakfast Breads, An Ideal Bread Basket, Flavor Packed Flatbreads, and Quick Yeasted Treats. He admittedly takes some liberty with traditional recipes, like Navaho Fry Bread, but he says this up front in the introduction to the recipe. He also tweaks other recipes, like the classic Parker House roll. Again, he explains what he is doing in the intro to the recipe, so that the reader is well aware that he/she is not making a classic recipe in the classic manner. I have tried both the challah an the yeast-raised waffles, and both turned out very well. Definitely looking forward to trying out more of the recipes.
The book has a lot of tips that I will keep trying, (strong recommendations for a baking stone, types of flour and yeast, etc.) but it isn't the 'learn to bake bread' bible I was looking for - at least for me. Actual mileage may vary.
And there is a beautiful looking loaf of bread on the cover of the book - crusty, rustic bread. As best as I can tell, there is no recipe in the book for that loaf.
