Format: Hardcover
I picked this book up on a whim at the bookstore and am quite glad I did. It goes far beyond the well-known gingerbead cake and gingerbread men with many other ginger-y delights. I have a lot of cookbooks so a determining factor in my purchase was that I hadn't seen the vast majority of these tempting recipes anywhere else.

Be warned that the average person is not likely to have all the ingredients at hand. I consider myself a baker but do not stock whole wheat flour, rice flour or almond flour, nor do I have Chinese five-spice powder, orange flower water, maple extract, candied citron or quince jelly. Make sure you read the recipe far enough in advance to allow time for a trip to the grocery store (and possibly a specialty cooking store such as Sur La Table).

After a brief introduction, the author provides an overview of necessary equipment and recommended ingredients. Most cooks are likely to have all the necessary equipment: stand mixer, baking pans, baking sheets, wire cooling racks and parchment paper or silicone liners. Interesting facts about the history of gingerbread are scattered throughout the book.

The first chapter is on cakes and incudes recipes for Grandmom Lindner's Favorite Gingerbread Cake, Gingerbread Pound Cake, Pumpkin-Gingerbread Cake, Apple Butter-Gingerbread Cake, Spiced Pear Upside-Down Gingerbread Cake, Gingerbread Rum Cake, Ginger Syrup-Soaked Gingerbread Cake, Marbled Gingerbread-Almond Loaf Cake, Robert's Celebration Gingerbread Cake, Carol Lee's Jeweled Gingerbread Fruitcake, Rich Chocolate Gingerbread Cake, and Eliza Leslie's Lafayette Gingerbread.

Some people may think I'm crazy to say this, but I'm looking forward to winter! I'm craving cozy days in front of the fire with a book and a pot of tea. I'm also really craving the cozy foods that go along with the season. Gingerbread is a cozy food, so I ordered this book. First, I was pleased that this book, being focused on one narrow topic, was not a tiny booklet with maybe only a couple dozen recipes. Instead, it is nicely sized, with about 60 recipes and 23 photos.

Second, all the recipes are appealing to me. They are surprisingly quite varied. I think the first things I'll be making will be: Grandmom Lindner's Favorite Gingerbread Cake (looks simple, moist and delicious), Robert's Celebration Gingerbread Cake (a layer cake with meringue and a praline buttercream...oh man!), Twice-Gingered Shortbread sounds good, as do the Gingerbread Madeleines (perfect with that pot of tea in front of the fire),---- I'm about to list all the recipes here!----Gingerbread Blondies, a Gingerbread-Blackberry Trifle, a Gingerbread Buche de Noel with chestnut buttercream, and Gingerbread Ice Cream...I'll stop. It'll be so hard to choose one to try first!

I'll update this review as soon as I've made a few of the recipes.

Update (4/30/10): I only got around to making 5 recipes, but they were all quite good. I did have a little trouble with the rum sauce recipe. It doesn't seem possible to dissolve the sugar with the amount of butter listed...

I still highly recommend it.

I got this book for the Holidays last year, and I love it! Great book, nicely detailed. I would have loved even more pictures!

I have made a couple of the recipes in this book and each of them turned out fantastic. In fact, the results managed to change people who didn't even like the items in question (caramels, toffee and gingerbread cake in my case)into fans. Wonderful!

The recipient must have liked this because I did not hear any complaints. Probably gained weight and I will get blamed for it.
