Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Sarabeth Levine has won a James Beard Award for Outstanding Pastry Chef, but customers standing in line at her uptown Manhattan bake shop have eyes only for her scones, muffins, cookies, and croissants. Those of us not lucky enough to reside within easy commuting distance to Sarabeth's Bakery can now replicate and sample her puddings, pies, and other signature goodies with the aid of this pastry recipe book and baking cooking guide. Levine's step-by-step instructions and Quentin Bacon's photographs will enable home bakers to drown their baking fears as they savor their first taste of her banana cream pie.

Publishers Weekly
Starred Review.

From her modest beginnings selling fruit spreads, jams, and preserves in specialty shops and opening a bakery café "on what was then a distinctly inelegant Amsterdam Avenue on Manhattan's Upper West Side," the James Beard Award-winning pastry chef's star, like her dough, continues to rise. These days, Levine focuses on growing her brand and expanding into a number of other New York neighborhoods and Key West, Fla. Now, in her first cookbook, she gives a historical overview of Sarabeth's and offers scrumptious descriptions of the baked treats she and her staff regularly make. Chapters cover morning pastries, muffins, breads, pies, cakes, and cookies in great detail. Though recipes calling for homemade puff pastry or croissant dough may prove too complicated for the average home cook, they provide a challenge to the ambitious. Sections on spoon desserts like Crème Brûlée, chocolate and bread puddings, ice creams and sorbets, and spreadable fruits (the item that helped Levine launch Sarabeth's three decades ago) add to the appeal of this handsome volume.

From the Publisher
"New York’s own baking legend even shares the recipe for her strawberry-peach preserves — the better to smear on your warm challah or pumpkin muffins." ~New York Times, "Best Culinary Books of 2010"

"Year's Best Cookbooks Round-up: 'For more serious bakers, the first cookbook by Sarabeth Levine, Sarabeth’s Bakery (Rizzoli, $39.95), offers careful explanations and detailed photographs invaluable for puff pastry and a host of other fundamentals.' " ~New York Times, Dining Section

"Sarabeth Levine is finally letting us in on her baking secrets. The more than 100 recipes from the famed Sarabeth's Bakery vary from the everyday (but still awesome) Chocolate Chubbie Cookie, to the more complex homemade Babka. The recipes seem to be gently handed over to the reader, as if Sarabeth is giving them just to you. And with tons of lovely photography, you could spend hours poring over this hefty volume, as I did. In addition to the fabulous baked goods, the book has Sarabeth's recipes for her world-famous marmalades and jams. So if you don't want to give away the book, you could make, and give as gifts, the apricot-orange marmalade that helped launch Sarabeth's career. This gorgeous book might be the ultimate gift for all the bakers on your list, including you." ~Philadelphia Inquirer

"We recommend making some room on your shelf for this must-have tome." ~Ladies' Home Journal

"...stunner of a book" ~Barnes & Nobles Book Club Blog

"In this decadent tome Sarabeth's Bakery: From My Hands to Yours (Rizzoli New York) she shares her award winning recipes that will appease your palate-- each and every time... Certain to inspire both experienced home cooks and those just starting out in the kitchen, each recipe is designed to ensure the dessert preparation process is as enjoyable as the finished result... a must for dessert enthusiasts!" ~Le Petite Blog

“This baking book is one of the best, most user-friendly, complete books on the market…. Sarabeth’s Bakery is truly complete, encompassing just about everything in anyone’s baking repertoire.” ~ San Francisco Book Review
