Young Mo Kim began his adventures in baking when he was 17 years old. His passion brought him to pastry arts school. Before he was 30 years old, he opened his first bakery in Seoul, Korea. Currently, he has four bakeries and one cafe. Not only does he teach baking at culinary schools as well as to home bakers, he is also a celebrity chef on television. He is currently the president of the Korean Bakers Association. This is his third baking book, and the first one in English.
Not only are there fantastic photos of the finished product for each recipe, but also photos of each stage of creation, totally over 1000 photos! I find this extremely helpful when trying a completely new recipe.
Young Mo Kim's experience at teaching home bakers is quite evident. He explains the method to each recipe so well, anyone can try these recipes.
Chapters included in this book are: Simple Delights (cookies, pound cake and more); A World of Bread (croissants, scones, bagels and more); Fantastic Desserts (tarts, souffles and more); Cakes for Special Occasions (genoises, sponges, cheesecakes and more); Valentine's Day (chocolate); Holiday Treats (yule logs, fruit cake and more); ingredients; and equipment.
One of my favorite recipes is: Pumpkin Cake. It is very different from what we usually see. The cake is a layer cake with the cake part made of a pumpkin genoise. Instead of a cream cheese frosting, the cake is filled with a pumpkin mousse. It is topped with chantilly cream.Read more ›
I found it to be thoughtfully organized and written for amateur bakers just like me.
This book has a fantastic collection of recipes with easy and clear cut directions with detailed color photos which
were very helpful.
This is one baking book that I know I will keep coming back to use over and over again!

I searched for a book like this for a long time. I have eaten Asian desserts and I love sweets. These desserts are low in sugar and are amazing. I do not miss the sugar at all.Published 23 months ago by Talibah
This is a very good guide for beginner. Otherwise, one need to search for critical details on web, which is really a hard work for me. All-in-one book.Published on January 29, 2014 by chengduzer
Has most of the recipes in Korean bakeries!
Now, If I wanted, can make those $40 cakes!
It even has guides for what certain terminologies mean.
