    Marzipan Scones - yyuummmm!

    Baking Style is Lisa Yockelson's newest book on all things baking. The extra large format and bright pink cover are eye-catching so it won't get lost and forgotten on your shelves. She starts with a detailed explanation on various techniques, equipment, and ingredients. Then she moves on to the recipes. The organization is hard to follow, it seems more whimsy than anything else, but the photographs are plentiful and gorgeous and the large format means the recipes are easy to read.

    Marzipan Scones -
    These were the lightest, fluffiest, tastiest scones I've ever made! The base is not too sweet and it really highlights the little chunks of marzipan that are scattered throughout. I will definitely be making these again.


    Dirty Cake -

    More like a coffee cake than say a birthday cake, this had loads of cinnamon flavor. It was a little hard to get the second layer to cover the cinnamon brown sugar topping, but I persisted and won out in the end. This cake tasted even better the next day.

    Parmesan and Gruyere Popovers -

    My one disappointment in this book. I was surprised that the recipe called for refrigerating the dough. Every popover recipe I've ever made calls for all the ingredients to be at room temperature to help the popovers "pop". I followed the recipe and, indeed, these popovers didn't "pop". The flavor was nice, but I missed the light, airy texture.

    There are so many more recipes I will make from this book - Saturated Orange and Bourbon Cake, Big and Crazy Chewy Date Bars, and Cardamom Buns that (Almost) Levitate, just to name a few!

    No ordinary cookbook!

    After having been a baker for 40 years (I started at 12), it's rare that I choose to add a cookbook to my collection (in fact I tend to cull more than add, these days). But new cookbooks can be inspiring and bakers know what I mean when I say it's exciting to find a new recipe one loves enough to add to the standard repertoire. The challenge for an experienced baker looking for a new book, is that most books are either too basic (nothing wrong with "basic" but after years of experience, why spend the money on them?) or too specialized (I don't really need to make my own puff pastry). So after browsing the B&N cookbook aisles yesterday for nearly an hour and thinking I would get out of the store without spending any money (but alas, sad, for lack of baking inspiration), I saw Baking Style on a table. I picked it up, leafed through it, saw some interesting recipes, looked at the price, and figured I'd have to find alot more recipes to justify taking out my checkbook. So I found a corner of the store, and leafed through every single page and recipe. Conclusion: This was the perfect inspiration book for me. It isn't your typical table of contents, it contains mega recipes that will challenge and expand my repertoire, and I was inspired. Cooking and baking are creating, so one must be inspired in order to enjoy the experience. This is a lovely book that any baker would appreciate; one that will lend itself to longevity on any baker's shelf, from beginning to experienced. The photography is gorgeous. The sharing of essays is so appreciated because after all, baking is sharing.
