Nick Malgieri is an extraordinary pastry chef and an extraordinary teacher. Both skills are evident in his latest book, BAKE! in which Malgieri explains and illustrates 20 essential techniques, with variations, that will allow the home baker to produce consistently excellent breads, cookies, and cakes, while building confidence in more ambitious bakers to venture into the realm of puff pastry and other, more difficult, delicacies. You can pick and choose which of the chapters to immerse yourself in, but each will produce delicious rewards. With color photographs.
