From the go-to boutique bakery in Victoria, BC, this cookbook—with over 85 recipes—satisfies every sweet, savory, and in-between craving you might have, all while making you a better baker.

Every morning, for over a decade, locals and visitors alike have lined up outside Crust Bakery, eager to taste their delicious, rustic baking. It’s the kind of baking you dream of filling your home with. And now, you can! Within the pages of this debut cookbook, Crust founding chef Tom Moore shares recipes for the bakery’s most popular menu items, breaking them down into manageable steps and peppering in hints and tips to help you achieve success at home. You’ll have no trouble making the perfect baked good, whether you’re craving:

  • Pies and Tarts: Impress with Crust’s famous Lemon Passion Fruit Slice, the genius Vanilla Crème Brûlée Tarts to go, or the breakfast/lunch barrier-breaking Bacon, Tomato, and Smoked Cheddar Quiche.
  • Muffins, Scones, and Squares: Explore Tom’s Australian-inspired Banana and Macadamia Muffins, or the simple yet scrumptious treat from his daughter: Abby’s Favorite Chocolate Rice Krispie Squares.
  • Cakes: Indulge in the multi-season celebration of Zucchini Marmalade Cake or the multi-tiered decadence of Mr. Rich Birthday Cake.
  • Cookies: Share Tom’s cheeky take on a Down Under favorite with Tom Tams or the “little black dress of cookies,” the Pecan and Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies.
  • Breads: Nurture a surefire Sourdough Starter day by day (to use for a number of recipes) or enjoy Cinnamon Brioche Scrolls and Aussie Crunch Rolls.

After years teaching at his own culinary school, Tom has anticipated every baker’s question (and woe) with a helpful troubleshooting section. Because sometimes your dough just won’t rise—and Crust will tell you why! These are bakery-quality recipes that every home baker can make with confidence.
