Overview

A visit to Baker and Spice, the internationally acclaimed bakery in London's Knightsbridge area, is a must for anyone who loves good food. Everything is hand-made by bakers working on the premises, using the finest ingredients and traditional methods. Full-flavored rustic breads are baked in the original steam-generating ovens. Delectable pastries are made in the modern ovens in the back. There are butter-rich brioches and croissants, cookies of all kinds, muffins, cheesecake brownies, fabulous huge meringues that melt in the mouth, chocolate mousse cake, and so much more. Baker and Spice Baking with Passion includes recipes for all of these fabulous breads, pastries, and cakes. Replicate the steam-injection used in the bakery. Discover that working with wetter doughs and using gentle kneading produces better bread. Learn the secrets of traditional "old school" French baking. Appreciate the importance of using the very best ingredients to make cakes that need no "dressing up". All of the recipes have been tested in a domestic kitchen using non-professional ovens and equipment. Complicated procedures are clearly and thoroughly presented, many with step-by-step photographs. Beautiful color photographs of the finished result whet the appetite and inspire the reader to get baking.
