This is a great gift for the baker on your Christmas list!
A gorgeous, useful cookbook that that will help you create works of art in your own kitchen. First off, I love a cookbook with nice photographs. These go way beyond nice with a large format, pictures of almost every recipe, and a lot of pictures showing helpful techniques. The recipes are apealing and well-written making them easy to understand and they produce good results! One of my favorites so far is Fennel, Fig and Almond Bread. Its as easy to make as any standard quick bread but with updated and modern flavors. This was truly delcious and the fennel really makes it unique. I brought it to a work potluck and it was a big hit. Another favorite is the Caramel Crumb Bars. They are light and buttery with an oozing caramel center. The recipe makes a big 9 x 13 pan, so these are perfect for a bake sale or party. There are so many more recipes I plan to try from this cookbook! Starting with Cocoa Banana Muffins, Rosemary, Olive Knots, and Marbled Chocolate Brioche, and moving on to One-Step Croissants, Lemon Ginger Pound Cake and Spicy Hazelnut Biscotti! <BR/>This is a great gift for the baker on your Christmas list.....
