This Will Be The Last Baking Cookbook I Purchase

Had I seen this first, I wouldn't have purchased any other baking cookbooks I've tried - much better even, than Julia Child's Baking (and it ...was... my favorite!)

Had I seen this first, I wouldn't have purchased any other baking cookbooks I've tried - much better even, than Julia Child's Baking (and it ...was... my favorite!)

I consider myself an intermediate baker but I find I learn a new technique, new tip or shortcut, or a correction to something I've done wrong in the past, each time I try a new recipe from this book. It has easy to follow directions, photos that make sense, and it's just plain entertaining. If I ever meet James Peterson I will shake his hand in gratitude for the best baking cookbook I've ever had on my shelf! This will surely be passed down to future generations within my family as a proper textbook for baking.

Growing up in a family of bakers, I realized just how much I had learned from them as I read about techniques in this in-depth book. It gave me the answers to why I was taught to do things in a certain way for success. The recipes are well written. I would have liked an explanation of what could happen if procedures weren't followed exactly. This would have explained why I had to do a certain step. This happened to me as I made the Cinnamon Rolls. The filling turned solid as it cooled. I rechecked the recipe and felt I did just as it said. I ended up using my own filling.
