    Get Started: Baking by Amanda Wright I wanted to read this book

    Get Started: Baking by Amanda Wright
    I wanted to read this book because I like to bake and experiment with food.
    Start out talking about all the accessories you might need and what they are used for and different basic staples you might need for any recipe and the differences between the different types.
    Love that this book starts out with my favorite and I rarely make it: Carrot cake. The recipes show not only the written instructions but pictures of what you need and the different steps.
    Even though they show the most basic recipes there are more involved ones as well.
    Also a section on meat pies and a section about bought dough.
    Science of making pie dough is an interest to me as I always end up messing it up. There are other chapters showing the science of other foods as well.
    There are also so many recipes for breads and the most exquisite desserts I've ever seen. They make them seem too easy to make!
    Such a great resource of knowledge!
    I received this from Edelweiss by Penguin Group (USA) Inc.. in exchange for my honest review.
