Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“It’s always a pleasure to see the fireworks that a master pastry chef like Johnny can produce. But what makes this book indispensable to anybody who loves to bake is the way he explains basic baking principles and shares his vast knowledge. Every kitchen should have this book, including mine.”
--Duff Goldman
 
"I was first introduced to Johnny Iuzzini's artistry at Jean-Georges. He's like a modern-day Willy Wonka, creating desserts with a whimsical nature—and because I am a passionate lover of all things sweet, I became a huge fan. This book is a great way for people to take his playful spin on desserts and re-create them in their own home."
--Giada De Laurentiis

    I absolutely just love this cookbook. It¿s like a baking course

    I absolutely just love this cookbook. It’s like a baking course inside a book. Everything you need to know is inside this wonderful book. It also is a hardcover which I love. I couldn’t pass this cookbook up when I got a look at that wonderful cover. Couldn’t you just eat those right up?

    If you love to cook especially bake awesome sweets then I strongly believe you need this cookbook in your life. This book is full of sweet tasting recipes that vary in levels of difficulty. However, I believe that they all could be easy to make for a standard home cook. The harder ones may require some extra practice but you can get there!

    I also am crazy over those photographs. They are amazing. I thought that the step by step instructions would be just in words but they were in photographs which I find more helpful then reading and trying to imagine what it should look like to know if you are doing it right or not.

    This cookbook is full of wonderful adventures in cooking that are just waiting for you to explore. I love this cookbook and it makes an awesome addition! I would recommend this to everyone! 5+ stars!

    I received this book for free from Blogging For Books Program in exchange for my honest review.

    WOW!!! That alone says it all! This book instructs and shows y

    WOW!!! That alone says it all! This book instructs and shows you everything you need to know in order to turn out wonderful and delicious desserts. It is a huge volume not only in size but in content. With over 150 recipes and awesome photographs, you can be assured that your journey into the world of baking will be an easy and enjoyable one. I don't think there is any question that a novice baker could have that isn't covered within these pages.

    As a sugar addict myself, I know my sweet tooth will be indulged with the offerings from these pages. Given my love of all things "tea" I skipped straight to the chapter entitled "Cookies, Tea Cakes, and Biscuits" and planned some marvelous teas that I hope will materialize in the near future. After I had my fill of that chapter I went back and started at the beginning. Just reading through the recipes are enough to give you a rush. Would that all I had to do all day was bake because I certainly could keep myself well entertained with the aid of this book and the helpful step-by-step photos that accompany the recipes.

    This will not be one of those cookbooks that you buy on a whim and leave sitting in the bookcase. This will be one of those cookbooks that you will use over and over again. My only suggestion is that you place a protective sheet of plastic over the pages so they don't get spattered with the ingredients as you whip up a lovely dessert for those you love.
