Food 52- Baking Version by the Editors of Food52
Each recipe includes a full color photo, an ingredient list, a number of how many people it serves, and extensive directions.
What I liked best about this book is that it includes numerous styles and techniques that are not traditionally used. For example, the recipe for Raspberry Clafoutis includes a how-to on making your own scented sugar. Some of my other favorite features include the Baking Basics section. This includes everything from learning how to make your own buttermilk, to learning how to cut in butter or how to assemble and frost a cake.
I think this book would be excellent for someone just learning to bake, or even a seasoned chef! Not only does it have basic recipes like cream cheese cookies, but it also includes many somewhat adventurous recipes such as Balsamic Macaroons with Chocolate Chips! I am not much of an adventurous baker, but I found many recipes in here that I can't wait to try! My girls and I will have a great time creating Magic Espresso Brownies and Blueberry Schlumpf!
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone in search of a good baking recipe book! I rate this book as 5 stars. I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
