Editorial Reviews


“Some books are beautiful, some are useful, and the rare ones are both. The Artful Baker is a rare book from a rare talent. Cenk is a gifted storyteller, an extraordinary pastry chef, and a man with a remarkable eye–his images make you dream.”
(Dorie Greenspan James Beard award winner, author of Dories Cookies)

“A beautiful collection of classic and exotic desserts, The Artful Baker will entice you into the kitchen with spectacular photographs and clear instructions. But it's the flavors that will sweetly seduce you. All the ingredients of a superb baking book!”
(David Lebovitz bestselling author of My Paris Kitchen)

The Artful Baker presents clearly written recipes, easy to master techniques, strikingly beautiful presentations, and exquisite flavor – in other words, this book has it all. Cenk has spent years honing his talents in baking, writing, styling, and photography and they have all come together in this most gloriously creative book.”
(Nick Malgieri James Beard award winner, author of Bread and Pastry)

“In addition to being a skillfull technician of his trade, Cenk is an artist of exquisite taste, and an excellent and informative writer…Cenk is one of the most original authors whose work I have ever encountered.”
(Rose Levy Beranbaum)

“Sönmezsoy has gone from learning cake baking basics to crafting extraordinary macarons, simits, and tarts, sharing his creations online, and, now, in his latest cookbook, The Artful Baker.”

“His unbridled passion for dessert shows in his dazzling new cookbook, which he wrote, styled, photographed, and designed himself.”

“This is a coffee-table book that really should be used. But the first splatter on its pages will make you ache. Bake carefully.”
(Star Tribune)

“Get ready to become the DaVinci of desserts, even if you’re relatively new to baking.”
(Leite’s Culinaria)

“Page after stunning page, photo after stunning photo, decadent recipe after decadent recipe all make for one of the most beautiful baking books ever.”
(Eat Your Books)

“This gorgeous volume is filled with stories and techniques that will draw you into the kitchen to bake, sift, beat, and churn things like Tahini and Leblebi (double-roasted chickpeas) Swirl Brownies, Pistachio and Matcha Sablés, and Grape and Kefir Ice Cream.”
(Katie Parla)
