Author(s): Rose Levy Beranbaum
Legendary baker Rose Levy Beranbaum is back with her most extensive "bible" yet. With all-new recipes for the best cakes, pies, tarts, cookies, candies, pastries, breads, and more, this magnum opus draws from Rose's passion and expertise in every category of baking. As is to be expected from the woman who's been called "the most meticulous cook who ever lived," each sumptuous recipe is truly foolproof - with detail-oriented instructions that eliminate guesswork, "plan-aheads," ingenious tips, and highlights for success. From simple everyday crowd-pleasers (Coffee Crumb Cake Muffins, Gingersnaps, Gooseberry Crisp) to show-stopping stunners (Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse Tart, Mango Bango Cheesecake, White Christmas Peppermint Cake) to bakery-style pastries developed for the home kitchen (the famous French Kouign Amann), every recipe proves that delicious perfection is within reach for any baker.
"Berenbaum successfully bridges the gap between popular home baking collections and professional texts, and her recipes will endure long after novelty baking trends have tired." --"Library Journal" "The gigantic, beautiful dictionary delivers on the title's promise: This is the bible of baking." --"People.com""Beranbaum, a veteran cookbook author and baker, divides this worthy tome into four sections: Cakes; Pies, Tarts, and Other Pastries; Cookies and Candy; Breads and Yeast Pastries. ... Classic recipes--think pumpkin pecan pie--are aplenty, but first-time recipes and unusual selections such as the author's Pink Pearl Lady Cake, Cadillac CafE's milk chocolate bread pudding, and an Amish BlueRhu pie make this title a must-have gem." --"Publisher's Weekly" ""The Baking Bible" puts up no such facade. Each recipe is broken down so specifically that none fits on a single page -- a positive thing when it comes to baking recipes. All that detail ensures the results are as delicious in reality as they sound on the page." "--TheKitchen," (Apartment Therapy) "This cookbook will make you want to rush to your kitchen to made desserts and snacks such as the Ischler, a lovely Austrian sandwich cookie, Lemon Jammies or even brioche, crumpets or meringues. For people who bake from the heart, "The Baking Bible" fills a spiritual need."" --The Houston Chronicle" "Rose's latest masterwork is full of precise measurements, fastidious instructions, and, most important, recipes that work. This book will walk you through the intricacies of a pastry chef's kitchen -- and out the other side with more than a few delicious tricks up your sleeve." "--Martha Stewart Living" "Rose Levy Beranbaum is a legend in baking and pastry cookbooks ..." --"Eater.com" "For the serious baker, the book's mechanical precision will lead to perfect results ..." --"Time.com"
