This book begs to be different. Though an excellent baking book, nothing follows the usual and accepted of a standard baking book. It is a beautiful, large-format book, perfectly suitable for the coffee table for guests to browse through its pages. The many full-page color photos are stunning with mouthwatering food examples. This book is not for the beginner though a novice will learn everything about baking in the first 32 pages: ingredients, their role in baking, techniques, the baking process, terminology and equipment. The recipes are a snap to follow but expect to spend some time on most. The author's language and writing is great, and she precedes many recipes with extensive essays. Yet her poetic language often interferes with clear understanding and some instructions are ambiguous even to me (a seasoned baker). The recipe titles are a further problem: many are so convoluted as to be unclear of what you'll try to accomplish. E.g. A Nice, Untidy Torte, #2; Lemon Cake, Sublime and Divine, Lemony Sugar Wash with Glazed Lemon Threads or The Don't-Dispute-Your-Mother Cake. Some ingredients are hard to find and you may also need to upgrade your baking equipment. The well cross-referenced index is excellent.
