Duff shares his background, work ethic and some kitchen experiences that are heartwarming. This book and the recipes included will make you want to jump into the kitchen and "Bake something". I am also going to share this book with my adult children - He is a true inspiration. Would you believe he uses organic blueberries in his sourdough starter? His explanation of a variety of flours and leavening ingredients is welcome.
As I work my way through Duff's book, I will update my review. Although I am an experienced baker, I know that I will have to change some of my ingredients (no self-rising flour) and some of my techniques (Overmixing) but it should be a great tasting adventure.
I originally borrowed it from the library and before my lease time was up I had already ordered a copy.
The book is concise and easy to follow. The explanations of the ingredients the variety of recipes and the inclusion of vegan and gluten free recipes as well is much appreciated. Also, the cake decorating section is "awesome". Yes this book should be titled Awesome 😀👏🏻
Recipes found in this book include twinkies, avocado cake (among louds of delicious vegan and gluten free Recipes!), pop tarts, and sour dough bread. So much yumminess....
