Editorial Reviews

<b>Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg</b> - James Beard Award-winning authors of THE FLAVOR BIBLE
"Emily Luchetti is one of a handful of leading pastry chefs who have been setting the gold standard for restaurant desserts in the United States over the past two decades. Yet she also has the remarkable ability to impart her keen insights into flavor and technique to beginners. While her previous cookbooks have given rise to fervent admirers among culinary professionals (including us), this one is destined to inspire a whole new generation of home cooks to be fearless in the kitchen when it comes to baking."
<b>Suzanne Goin</b> - James Beard Award-winning chef and author of Sunday Suppers at Lucques
"I love the friendly, chatty tone of The Fearless Baker--it's like having Emily right there in your kitchen cheering you on. . . . I want to take this book home, set up camp, and bake with my kids for six months straight."
San Francisco Chronicle Michael Bauer
"Emily Luchetti's desserts are four-star affairs."
Mireille Guiliano - author of French Women Don't Get Fat
"If your idea of baking is pleasure and chocolate (and why wouldn't it be?), you are in the best of kitchens with wizard pastry chef Emily Luchetti. Her dessert and breakfast recipes are easy-to-follow indulgences and oh so délicieuses."
David Lebovitz - author of Ready for Dessert and The Sweet Life in Paris
"The Fearless Baker is like having a pastry chef answering all your questions alongside you as you whisk, roll, and stir. With Emily Luchetti's can't-fail recipes and lively sidebar commentary, bakers of all levels will be rewarded with sweet success."
