How To Bake is as necessary and essential as a good oven; it is the most comprehensive and accessible guide to baking available in English. In a single, illustrated volume, Nick Malgieri, one of America’s preeminent bakers and baking teachers, leads cooks through the simple art of creating an international assortment of delicious sweet and savory baked goods.
The recipes in How to Bake are clear and methodical. Master recipes explain all the steps to making a classic dish. They are frequently followed by creative variations so that the baker’s palate and skills will always be accommodated and challenged. Start out with a simple spice cake, for example, and transform it, under Malgieri’s reassuring guidance, into a lavishly decorated celebration cake.
