Baking for dummies,
This review is from: Professional Baking, 5th Edition (Hardcover)
I was excited to see that this book was cheaper than what they were offering at my school. I looked at the reviews for the book and I can understand the very few negative reviews that was written for this book. First one I read was from the person that lived in K zoo Michigan we are most likely in the same program and I understand frustrations there, baking is not for everybody doesn't mean you have to take it out on the book though. The next review I read was about having to flip back and forth for larger quantity I believe is what the person was trying to complain about key word: trying, how hard is it to turn pages? lazy,lazy, lazy it's a shame when we can only complain about mundane things am I right? The couple of last ones I read was on not receiving the book itself, so I cannot really say anything about those except there is no 24th month or 20th month for that matter, my guess is that was too far away for U.S. shipping standards. This book was very helpful to me in my culinary class and I found many great recipes. It was easy to read and use. The historical significance in the beginning was actually pretty interesting. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the pursuit of a career in baking.
