Editorial Reviews

Serious Eats
“Chef Tom Douglas of Seattle’s Dahlia Bakery has amassed a devoted following, and for good reason; the man clearly knows what he’s doing. . . . More than just a collection of recipes. . . . One look through the book and you’ll be converted, too.”
Fine Cooking Editors
“Warning: The combination of mouthwatering photos and evocative prose in this book may induce a baking frenzy. Beloved Seattle chef Tom Douglas takes unabashed pleasure in food, and when he describes something he adores-such as the sticky, gooey maple éclair . . . you’ll find yourself desperately craving it, too.”
Martha Stewart Living
“I can’t go to Seattle without dropping in at chef-restaurateur Tom Douglas’s Dahlia Bakery for some of his sweet or savory pies, cookies, and tarts. Being able to make his peerless Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookie at home saves me the trip.”
NPR
“Dahlia Bakery welcomes jaded bakers back to the oven the old-fashioned way: with muffins and scones and cupcakes and pastries.”
Mario Batali
“In The Dahlia Bakery Cookbook, Tom Douglas has created the volume every cook should have on baking. It's useful not only because it compiles the recipes that have delighted Seattle residents for years (my parents included) but also because of the colorful prose and resource guides. It will occupy a prominent shelf in my kitchen. ”

Leaving Seattle was a difficult move for me, but the transition was made better knowing I could whip up some of my favorite treats from Dahlia Bakery myself. The recipes in this book are detailed and make it possible for a novice baker like myself to whip up delicious desserts.

Not compatible with Nook? Why is it being sold as a Nook Book?

I am an avid cookbook reader, collector and user, and I can tell you that this one ranks up there. Even is you don't bake, this is a great read. I have made a few of the recipes already and they turned out exactly as described and pictured... the grilled cheese recipes were delish. You won't go wrong with this book.

For both the advanced and novice baker, this book has recipes for all.  It reads like a good book, an educational tool, and is worth every penny.

Great. Amazing. Next time I go home to Seattle, I'm going to at least one of his restaurants. Now if I could just have more than two square feet of space in my NY kitchen, maybe I could bake again!
