The Fearless Baker: Scrumptious Cakes, Pies, Cobblers, Cookies, and Quick Breads that You Can Make to Impress Your Friends and Yourself
Bargain Book Copy
If you are intimidated by the thought of rolling your own pie dough or baking a cake from scratch, you probably run to your local bakery or grocery-store freezer for dessert rather than make your own. Baking - even for proficient home cooks - can be scary but there is a delicious satisfaction in presenting family and friends with fresh-out-of-the-oven desserts and breakfast breads that you have made yourself. In THE FEARLESS BAKER, renowned pastry chef Emily Luchetti offers 175 delectable and easy-to-follow recipes along with straightforward, lasting advice specifically geared toward beginners. Luchetti and co-author Lisa Weiss arranged kitchen sessions with a group of novice bakers, ordinary folks who enjoy cooking but have always felt nervous about the precise measuring, rolling, folding and mixing that many baking projects require. They learned what questions arise for the beginner and came up with reassuring practical advice that turned their apprentices into fearless bakers. Is that wedding present mixer collecting dust on your counter? You will be motivated by Luchetti's can-do spirit and sense of fun - and by the oohs and aahs of everyone around your table.
