Description: A Collection of 150 Classic and Contemporary Recipes, The Modern Baker makes bold strides in baking by striving to bring you success with the bulk of preparation taking under one hour. Master baker Nick Malgieri distills years of teaching experience into these simple step-by-step recipes for breads, scones, muffins, buns, focaccia, tarts, pies, puff pastries, cakes, cookies, bars, and biscotti.
Beginning with a general tutorial on ingredients, equipment, and basic techniques, Malgieri gets more specific for each chapter. Recipes include descriptions of how batters and doughs are supposed to appear at each stage of preparation. Sumptuous color photography shows clear how-to instruction, as well as mouth-watering images of the finished product, guaranteed to kick-start any reader into baking mode.
Beginner bakers will be delighted with the results from a first-time try with a pastry crust or cake layer. Experienced bakers will learn new techniques to save some time in the kitchen, and will enjoy trying some of the more challenging recipes that require a little more practice to master.
From Rosemary Olive Knots and Ginger-scented Panettone to a dainty Parisian Fruit Tart, from a light and fluffy Molded Chocolate-filled Napolean to a Corn Pudding Tart, from the classic Real Strawberry Shortcake to perfect Raspberry Linzer Disks, The Modern Baker covers it all, and supplies endless variations. But most importantly, Malgieri shows you how unintimidating baking can be with the right teacher.
