    An elegant, beautiful cookbook.

    I bought this book because of its breads section and was even more delighted with the sweets. Actually, the book is 50% sweets and 50% breads. What a great sampling of classic techniques, simply explained for the home baker. Exquisite photography througout. My only wish is that there was a section on how to lighten up the recipes. No low fat, low sugar recipes here, just classic cooking. Because of the beautiful photography this is an excellent gift book. Who doesn't like bread and sweets! In fact, my daughter visited and loved the book so much I'm sending her home with a second copy.

    Top notch baking book!!!

    Having visited SoNo Baking Company several times, it was a thrill to be able to try baking so many delicious recipes myself! Beautiful photos and personal tips/messages accompany these recipes helping the baker achieve success with their baking project. Extremely well done! Thank you John Barricelli!

    Enjoyed the book but...

    This is a beautiful book and the recipes look wonderful. However, in today's world it would have been so much more helpful if the author had provided some healthy alternatives to all the eggs and butter. As much as we know and love what these ingredients adds to our palate, we are often forced to not be so indulgent. Still it's a beautiful book and I've been to the cafe's and know the treats are wonderful.

    I've always struggled with yeast breads, but the descriptions in

    I've always struggled with yeast breads, but the descriptions in this book are so detailed that I was finally able to figure it out.  
    The Cinnamon Swirl Bread is amazing and the Italian Rustic Bread is great.  I've also tried the Banana Streusel muffins - yum!
    Last week, I visited the bakery and sampled some of the other items in the book, and purchased the second cookbook while I was there.

    Beautiful book

    I think this is a worthy all-around baking book for both new and experienced bakers. The author provides clear explanations of various techniques and why he uses them (good for newbies), and more experienced bakers are likely to learn a few things they didn't know before.

    NOT picture perfect

    Bought the cookbook because of Barricelli and because the photos made every dish look so delicious. I'm a good baker. BUT I made the red velvet cupcake, the carrot cake cupcake, and banana streusel muffins, following the recipes to the "t", and they did NOT come out picture perfect. Can't help but suspect that they're hiding some tricks-of-the-trade.

    Beautiful Baking Book

    I love to watch both John and Martha when they cook on TV. This book lets me have them in my kitchen all the time. Their instructions and recipes in the book are easy to follow. There's a great range of sweet and savory recipes. The only negative point for me is that there's not a picture of every recipe. I plan to work my way through every recipe...or at least attempt to.
