375 pages before the first recipe
Very disappointing. The first 375 pages are text on why ingredients work like they do. Then finally some recipes but very few pictures. The recipes are all odd...poppyseed angelfood cake with grapefruit sauce...do people really make recipes like that? The first part might be helpful if you have never baked before but if you are looking for recipes this isnt the book you want.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

THIS BOOK IS DELICIOUS!
This book is absolutely scrumptious in every way. I'm a novice baker myself, so the sections on techniques and ingredients are awesome. They totally take the guesswork out of making desserts. And the recipes are great... so far I've made the Valrhona Molten Chocolate Cake and the Damn Fine Apple Pie... This book is so easy to read and follow and doesn't make you feel like an idiot... she walks you through step by step... Highly recommended for anyone learning to bake!Was this review helpful?

A MUST have; amazing, informative book on baking!
I am a 16 year old girl who loves to bake, so when I saw this brand new book on the shelf at my local library, I immediately checked it out. It is seriously the absolute best book on baking to own. There is so much information on every aspect of baking, with an extraodinary emphasis on the background on different ingredients, such as liquid and solid fats, eggs, chocolate, flour, milk, sugars and many more. Totally worth to buy. ;)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
