This complete guide to the baking arts contains over 1500 recipes. In it, you'll learn how to make a wide variety of yeast breads, sweet breads, pastries, and desserts?and even pastas and sourdough breads. The book includes many "primer" sections of technical information on ingredients, utensils, and nutrition.
The author's aim is to give you an intuitive understanding of the baking process, such as your mother or grandmother may have had. A fun section devoted to other things you can do with flour?and great for kids?includes recipes for modeling dough, dog biscuits, and a winter pudding for birds. 620 pages.
