Overview

The latest and most comprehensive baking book yet from best-selling author and “diva of desserts” Rose Levy Beranbaum and winner of the 2015 IACP Cookbook Award for Baking

Legendary baker Rose Levy Beranbaum is back with her most extensive “bible” yet. With all-new recipes for the best cakes, pies, tarts, cookies, candies, pastries, breads, and more, this magnum opus draws from Rose’s passion and expertise in every category of baking. As is to be expected from the woman who’s been called “the most meticulous cook who ever lived,” each sumptuous recipe is truly foolproof—with detail-oriented instructions that eliminate guesswork, “plan-aheads,” ingenious tips, and highlights for success. From simple everyday crowd-pleasers (Coffee Crumb Cake Muffins, Gingersnaps, Gooseberry Crisp) to show-stopping stunners (Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse Tart, Mango Bango Cheesecake, White Christmas Peppermint Cake) to bakery-style pastries developed for the home kitchen (the famous French Kouign Amann), every recipe proves that delicious perfection is within reach for any baker.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
★ 07/21/2014
Beranbaum, a veteran cookbook author and baker, divides this worthy tome into four sections: Cakes; Pies, Tarts, and Other Pastries; Cookies and Candy; Breads and Yeast Pastries. All recipes include weights and volume for ingredients, and the author’s “Golden Rules” give readers essential baking information, such as why one should always use fresh baking powder and high-quality unsalted butter. “Highlights for Success” boxes are filled with inventive and helpful tips including freezing berries on branches. Classic recipes—think pumpkin pecan pie—are aplenty, but first-time recipes and unusual selections such as the author’s Pink Pearl Lady Cake, Cadillac Café’s milk chocolate bread pudding, and an Amish BlueRhu pie make this title a must-have gem. (Nov.)
From the Publisher
"Berenbaum successfully bridges the gap between popular home baking collections and professional texts, and her recipes will endure long after novelty baking trends have tired."—Library Journal
 
"The gigantic, beautiful dictionary delivers on the title's promise: This is the bible of baking."—People.com

"Beranbaum, a veteran cookbook author and baker, divides this worthy tome into four sections: Cakes; Pies, Tarts, and Other Pastries; Cookies and Candy; Breads and Yeast Pastries. ... Classic recipes—think pumpkin pecan pie—are aplenty, but first-time recipes and unusual selections such as the author’s Pink Pearl Lady Cake, Cadillac Café’s milk chocolate bread pudding, and an Amish BlueRhu pie make this title a must-have gem." —Publisher's Weekly

"The Baking Bible puts up no such facade. Each recipe is broken down so specifically that none fits on a single page — a positive thing when it comes to baking recipes. All that detail ensures the results are as delicious in reality as they sound on the page."  —TheKitchen, (Apartment Therapy)

"This cookbook will make you want to rush to your kitchen to made desserts and snacks such as the Ischler, a lovely Austrian sandwich cookie, Lemon Jammies or even brioche, crumpets or meringues. For people who bake from the heart, "The Baking Bible" fills a spiritual need."—The Houston Chronicle

"Rose's latest masterwork is full of precise measurements, fastidious instructions, and, most important, recipes that work. This book will walk you through the intricacies of a pastry chef's kitchen—and out the other side with more than a few delicious tricks up your sleeve." —Martha Stewart Living

"Rose Levy Beranbaum is a legend in baking and pastry cookbooks ..."—Eater.com

"For the serious baker, the book’s mechanical precision will lead to perfect results ..."—Time.com

★ 07/01/2014
Readers expect perfection from Beranbaum (Rose's Heavenly Cakes; The Cake Bible), whose award-winning cookbooks are known for their foolproof recipes and rigorous testing and development. Her tenth cookbook—a timeless collection of all-new cakes, pastries, cookies, candies, and breads—blends American and European traditions and thoroughly explains the hows and whys of baking through commandmentlike "golden rules" and meticulous instructions. Novice bakers can start out with easy choices (blueberry buckle) and work their way up to more complex recipes (prune preserves and caramel cream cake roll) that can have as many as five homemade components. Like Flo Braker's Baking for All Occasions, the book contains some unique desserts (pomegranate winter chiffon meringue pie) that won't be found elsewhere. The ingredient glossary, equipment list, resources, and appendixes are excellent. VERDICT Berenbaum successfully bridges the gap between popular home baking collections and professional texts, and her recipes will endure long after novelty baking trends have tired.

    Great book, bad packaging!

    I bought this book as a gift for an avid baker. She LOVES the book. However, I paid to have it gift wrapped. It was delivered torn and in children's wrapping paper. The cover was slightly torn too. Don't pay extra for gift wrapping, but the book is amazing!
