Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This elegant bakery cookbook showcases Breakfast Pastries, Tarts, Cakes, Cookies, Sweet & Savory Snacks, and Basic Recipes (e.g., Sweet Tart Dough, Caramel Sauce) from the Standard Baking Co. in Portland, ME. Bakery owner Pray and Culinary Institute of America-trained head pastry chef Smith have adapted these recipes for home cooks, and while most are suitable for novices, some (Butter Croissants, for example) require skill and specialty equipment (like tart rings and brioche molds). Beautiful matte photographs depict these European-style treats in their well-browned, crusty glory. VERDICT Readers who enjoy rustic and evocative bakery cookbooks, like Tartine and The Metropolitan Bakery Cookbook, will enjoy this.

Standard Baking Co. has been recognized in Bon Appétit, the New York Times, the Boston Globe, Travel & Leisure, and featured on National Public Radio.

Tara Smith is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. After graduation, she served as a teaching assistant at the school’s award winning Apple Pie Café. She now is head pastry chef at Standard Baking Co.
