Baking Artisan Pastries & Breads by Ciril Hitz

Never settle for store-bought pastries and breads again! With Baking Artisan Pastries and Breads as your guide, your day can begin with hearty, delicious treats — baked fresh from your own oven. Begin with a few everyday ingredients and a hankering for home baking, and you end up with a kitchen full of artisan-quality muffins, scones, quick breads, donuts, and more.

The home-baking movement is ever-expanding, a subculture full of people hungry for knowledge culled from the professional community. Simultaneously, the professionals are seeking out masters from previous generations, as well as new frontiers of information, to expand their skills.

Baking Artisan Pastries and Breads meets all your pastry and bread baking needs, from Mixed-Berry Muffins that are ready within the hour to Chocolate Croissants and decadent Lemon Brioche Donuts. Along the way you'll learn how to select kitchen equipment, choose high-quality ingredients, and master mixing and shaping techniques.
