Description

"Each chapter begins with a primer that describes the style of baked goods, as well as an explanation of essential ingredients, equipment, and baking methods. You'll learn why the flour you choose is key, how to tell if you've kneeded your bread dough long enough, why the temperatures of butter and eggs are critical in cake making, what equipment you need to accurately measure dry and wet ingredients, how an icing spatula can perfect your finished layer, and why souffl‚es fall (it's not what you think). Interspersed among the careful instructions are detailed photographs illustrating proper baking techniques, Clever "Getting Ahead" tips that can be completed in advance without altering the recipe's outcome, multiple recipe variations, and helpful storing advice are also included. Sidebare throughout the book give invaluable hints from the professional kitchen for improving the quality of your baking before you even turn on the oven"--P. [2] of cover.… (more)
