    Home bakers rejoice, professionals embrace!

    Whether you're a timid beginner, or an up-incoming future baker of America, like me, you can find something to love about this book. The description, mouth-watering recipes, and the science behind it pull you in, and make it impossible to resist baking every single item in this book (sure, it takes a long time, but it'll happen). For me, the research behind the recipe tells me why I get a certain texture and helps me create my own recipes. For the home cook, it simply insures that if you like a chewy, thick chocolate chip cookie, you can follow the steps of the recipes and end up with exactly that (not a thin, slightly burnt product). I can't think of a single page that isn't full of useful information. Even if you aren't sure of your ability to succeed in the kitchen or your just like to read, Baking Illustrated will indulge your sweet spot and maybe even change your mind!

    A good READ

    I love cookbooks that read like novels, and this title is no exception. I love that Cook's Illustrated explains all the reasons why the ingredient list is what it is. However, if you have the Cook's Illustrated Best Recipe or the revised CI Best New Recipe, you do not need this book because many of the recipes are included in both.

    Excellent baking cookbook

    I love all of my Cook's Illustrated/America's Test Kitchen cookbooks, and this one in no exception. It is my go-to cookbook when I feel like baking bread, making bagels, or trying a new cookie recipe.

    Result-proof recipes

    This is the best baking book that I've ever read. Everything turns out exectly what it should be exactly what editor said. You don't have to be worried about the results because it's going to be wonderful as it should be. I fully recommend this book to all serious bakers.

    A cook book you can read!!

    I LOVE this book, after showing it to several people at work they ordered it and fell in love with it also. Who would of thought you could curl up on the couch and spend and hour reading a book about baking. So many wonderful recipes and stories. If you love to watch America's Test Kitchen or other cooking shows this is the book for you!!

    GREAT BOOK for those who really want to bake!

    This is the best book I have ever had for cooking. It explains the how-to's for how to make your baking go right. There is a page worth of explanation for each recipe discussing what was tried in several of their recipes and how it was improved. Excellent to explain technique and methodology.
