Overview

Professional Baking by Wayne Gisslen is worth the money because this helped me to form the foundation of my knowledge on the subject. " Amazon.com review

Professional Baking is the most widely used textbook for the introductory baking course. Its comprehensiveness is unmatched in the market and its clear and technically accurate content provide readers with the base of knowledge that they need to further their skills.

This new edition continues to provide comprehensive coverage of the basics (bread making and cake mixing) and provides enhanced coverage of higher level techniques (pastry, chocolate, sugar work), which are becoming increasingly common in the introductory course.

    More than great

    I used this book in teaching baking in a technical college in Ohio. It is still my handbook for any baking, decorating,and presentation.
