This is one of the best baking cookbooks I have! There is so much information to read about some of the recipes and many recommendations for products and ingredients. I have read through it three times from cover to cover because I love this book so much. This book appeals to many different types of bakers ranging in skill. There are recipes for beginners, as well as more difficult ones. Everything you could possibly want is in this book. It has EVERYTHING!!! It is a must have for anyone who enjoys baking and producing wonderful goodies!!
