Description
The learn-to-bake master class in a book.

The craft of baking is based on good technique. Learn the fundamentals well, and you can bake perfect cakes, cookies, tarts, breads, and pastries each and every time.

That's the premise of Baking, revered cooking teacher James Peterson's master course in baking fundamentals. In more than 350 recipes and auxiliary techniques--most accompanied by illuminating step-by-step photographs--Peterson lays the foundation for lifelong baking success.

This book teaches you how to build finished baked goods from their essential components, providing both maximum guidance for less experienced bakers and great creative freedom for more confident bakers. The Cakes chapter, for example, presents basic cake recipes (Moist Sponge Cake, Devil' s Food Cake) followed by frostings, fillings, and glazes (Professional-Style Buttercream, White Chocolate Ganache), allowing you to mix and match endlessly. Or, if you're looking for knockout assembled cakes, go to the end of the chapter and discover complete illustrated instructions for, say, a decadent Chocolate Hazelnut Cake with Chocolate Filling and Hazelnut Buttercream, or an elegant Peach Crème Mousseline Cake.

Baking is packed with the basic, must-have recipes for every baker's repertoire (as well as more ambitious classics), such as:

Pound Cake
  • Crème Anglaise
  • Chiffon Cake
  • Cheesecake
  • Classic Puff Pastry
  • Cherry Pie

  • Cheese Souffles
  • Miniature Cake Petits Fours
  • Apple Strudel
  • Napoleons
  • Rolled Fondant • Bûche de Noël
  • Éclairs

    Copious photographs inspire and help bakers visualize the crucial moments of hundreds of recipes and techniques, including:

    Troubleshooting Tarts and Pies
  • Baking "Blind"
  • Making Liquid Fondant
  • Coating a Cake with Hot Icing
