    ITEM#: 10307478

    Dorie Greenspan has written or cowritten eight cookbooks, including Baking with Julia, which won a James Beard Award and an IACP Award; Desserts by Pierre Herme, which was named IACP Cookbook of the Year; and Chocolate Desserts by Pierre Herme, which won the Gourmand World Cookbook Award for the best English-language cookbook. She created many recipes for The All-New Joy of Cooking and is a special correspondent for Bon Appetit, for which she writes the “Tools of the Trade” column.
    Dorie Greenspan has written recipes for the most eminent chefs in the world: Pierre Herme, Daniel Boulud, and arguably the greatest of them all, Julia Child, who once told Dorie, You write recipes just the way I do.” Her recipe writing has won widespread praise for its literate curiosity and patient but exuberant style.” (One hard-boiled critic called it a joy forever.”) In Baking: From My Home to Yours, her masterwork, Dorie applies the lessons from three decades of experience to her first and real love: home baking. The 300 recipes will seduce a new generation of bakers, whether their favorite kitchen tools are a bowl and a whisk or a stand mixer and a baker’s torch.

    Even the most homey of the recipes are very special. Dorie’s favorite raisin swirl bread. Big spicy muffins from her stint as a baker in a famous New York City restaurant. French chocolate brownies (a Parisian pastry chef begged for the recipe). A dramatic black and white cake for a wow” occasion. Pierre Herme’s extraordinary lemon tart.
    The generous helpings of background information, abundant stories, and hundreds of professional hints set Baking apart as a one-of-a-kind cookbook. And as if all of this weren’t more than enough, Dorie has appended a fascinating minibook, A Dessertmaker’s Glossary, with more than 100 entries, from why using one’s fingers is often best, to how to buy the finest butter, to how the bundt pan got its name.

      This is a delicious decadence. One of the cookbooks you will pick up again & again just for the "drool factor." It does not give any nutritional facts, however, it's a given that these are not for the dieter. So far, nothing has been that complicated, although it may not be for the first time baker. Goes well with coffee and as a coffee table book. Awesome photos with each recipe.

    • I love Dorie Greenspan!
      Verified Purchase

      This book is amazing on so many levels: it is clear, concise and offers tips and hints that most cookbooks don't: how to store, what to look out for, etc. My daughter and I have made about eight recipes and each one has been a smashing success because of Dorie Greenspan's excellent method of delivering just what the baker needs to know!!!! Completely worth every penny...and more! Especially the World Peace cookies...they are absolutely wonderful!

      One of the better cookbooks to have for years to come. Tried several recipes from this book and was happy with every one of them. A good one to add to your collection.
