Overview

BAKE YOUR WAY THROUGH DELICIOUS TIME-TESTED RECIPES FROM ONE OF AMERICA'S PREMIER RESORTS I love to ski. I love the crisp, cool air and the way it tingles my face. I relish the freedom of gliding through powder snow, and the power in my legs as I carve turn after turn. I bask in the clear bright blue sky, the noble evergreen trees dusted with snowflakes, and the grandeur of panoramic mountain vistas. I love to bake. I savor the warm kitchen with its nurturing aromas and the smell of chocolate cake as it wafts from the oven. When I knead and shape the bread, I appreciate my strength, and I am grateful for a good whisking arm to make large batches of Vanilla Bean Pastry Cream. I get immediate satisfaction creating beautiful desserts; it's the same feeling I get standing at the bottom of a ski run and looking back up at my serpentine tracks.—from the Introduction
