Overview


This brand-new title in Barron's lavish series of palate-pleasing and recipe-filled Golden Books conjures up those wonderful pastry shops of Paris--rich with heavenly aromas and delights that gratify both the eye and the taste buds. The Golden Book of Baking presents 300 glorious recipes and color photos that guide home chefs toward perfection in the art of creating and enjoying the very finest baked delicacies. The kitchen-proven recipes are categorized as follows:

  • Cookies, Bars, and Brownies: raspberry delights, Bavarian apple cones, marbled cream cheese squares, and many more
  • Small Cakes: apple and pecan cupcakes, strawberry cream cupcakes, pecan and banana friands, and many more
  • Butter Cakes: basic pound cake, double chocolate pound cake, pecan crunch yogurt cake, upside-down apple cake, and many more
  • Layer Cakes: tricolored cake, Black Forest cake, strawberry cream gâteau, and many more
  • Pies and Tarts: lemon and lime meringue pie, chocolate and hazelnut tart, fruits of the forest pie, coconut cream tart, and many more
  • Pastries: almond bows, coffee éclaires, almond and walnut baklava, peach puff, and many more
  • Yeast Cakes: apple crumble kuchen, stollen, brioche, chocolate chelsea buns, and many more
  • Savories: scones, spicy Thai rolls, pepper and olive tart, ham and onion spirals, and many more

    This book's team of three expert authors have graded their recipes for classic and modern baked delicacies on a scale of 1, 2, and 3 to indicate level of difficulty. Most recipes fall into categories 1 and 2, but adventurous home chefs who think they can match the expertise of Paris's finest pâtisseries are invited to test their skill by attempting challenging recipes like the Red Fruit Dacquoise layer cake, or a baking sheet filled with authentically French Chocolate �clairs! The book's introduction includes important recommendations regarding ingredients, preparation methods, and baking equipment. More than 300 full-page, taste-tempting color photos show each baked delicacy, fresh from the oven and ready to serve and enjoy. This handsome volume features a ribbon place marker and gold-tipped page edges.

    Library Journal
    Barron's brings bakers two delicious treats for the holiday season. Both titles include a full-color photo with each recipe, difficulty level rating (1, 2, or 3), and clear, concise instructions that are detailed enough for bakers with moderate experience, though there are no tips or hints for beginners. Bardi, a prolific Italian cookbook author and coauthor of other titles in this series (The Golden Book of Cookies; The Golden Book of Chocolate), provides 300 recipes for every occasion: holidays (Christmas mince pie), children's parties (Ladybug Cupcakes; Marshmallow Pizza), or just to show off a baker's skills (Plum and Hazelnut Meringue Torte). The gold-edged pages and ribbon place marker add a gifty appeal.

    I bought this book because my son has a peanut allergy. I'm afraid to buy cake from the bakery due to the risk of cross contamination. With this, I at least know what's going in to it. I love cookbooks that have pics with each recipe and this has just that. The recipes are easy to follow and the pictures are bright and vivid. I'm sure I'[ll use it for years to come.
