Delicious, but no bread recipes! Aug 19, 2008
"Beyond the Bread Basket" is full of mouthwatering recipes using fresh, seasonal and local ingredients--from appetizers to salads, main courses to desserts--you'll find a lot of delicious and inventive recipes. My only caveat is that none of these [recipes] are for bread. You'll have to purchase your own baguettes, brioches and such from your local baker instead of making them yourself and some, such as white chocolate bread, may be difficult find.
That said, I've tried several delicious recipes that have given me ideas for others! So, it's still a wonderful book, just don't expect to learn how to make Eric Kayser's bread!
Maison Kayser's Bread! The best bread in Japan! Mar 22, 2008
I live in Japan and the first time I was introduced to Maison Kayser's bread was several years ago in Tokyo in a "Boulangerie" they have not so far away from my place. Every single guest I have around I take to this place and they say this is the best bread they have tried, and it seems amazing to them that the best bread is in Japan, country of rice! I have to say their breads are the BEST BREADS I ever tasted worldwide. My favorite is the olive bread followed by the cheese bread, among others. However, I was expecting this book to reveal more recipes of their bread and not just one main formula and ways to adjust it in order to get the recipes from the book, which is not the same then getting the formula/recipe for the bread it self. I was expecting a breads book as well, therefore, I am slightly disappointed. I hope that Mr. Kaiser, do not delay on sending out the recipes for the delicious bread he sales in his Boulangeries "Maison Kaiser".
Even though, the book deserves to be purchased and used as well, because everything that comes out is good. I recommend buying it together with the "Eric Kayser's Sweet and Savory Tarts" which I rate 5 stars. SO GOOD! MT-Japan
