About the Book

Book Synopsis



In How To Bake Everything, the most comprehensive book of its kind, New York Times bestselling author Mark Bittman offers the ultimate baker's resource--for beginners and pros alike!

Finally, here is the simplest way to bake everything, from American favorites (Crunchy Toffee Cookies, Baked Alaska) to of-the-moment updates (Gingerbread Whoopie Pies). The book explores global baking, too: Nordic ruis, New Orleans beignets, Afghan snowshoe naan. Bittman's recipes satisfy every flavor craving thanks to more than 2,000 recipes and variations: a pound cake can incorporate polenta, yogurt, ricotta, citrus, hazelnuts, ginger, and more.

New bakers will appreciate Bittman's opinionated advice on essential equipment and ingredient substitutions, plus extensive technique illustrations. The pros will find their creativity unleashed with guidance on how to adapt recipes to become vegan, incorporate new grains, improvise tarts, or create customized icebox cakes using a mix-and-match chart. Demystified, deconstructed, and debunked--baking is simpler and more flexible than you ever imagined.



Review Quotes




"Bittman's latest tome cements his position as encyclopedist of modern cooking. Here he focuses on the process of baking, presenting more than 2,000 recipes. It surprises no one that he inventories cakes, cookies, pies, breads, and all manner of pastries, but Bittman delves deep into less expected crackers and their cousins, flatbreads. He also gives instructions for fillings and frostings to top those baked items. Other nonbaked recipes embrace frozen desserts, sauces, and even some candies. Bittman's gift is the ability to share myriad intelligent approaches to basic recipes, making one formula yield multiple results and encouraging readers to use their own imaginations. Tables and sidebars throughout offer equipment and technique tips. He even shows how to reformat standard recipes into vegan-friendly alternatives. In his quest to leave no baking question unanswered, Bittman advises how to repurpose burned cookies to ensure that even disaster can be salvaged. This compendium is the next best thing to having the master himself in the kitchen, and should be a staple for all public library collections."--Booklist (starred review) "Prolific author and food writer Bittman (How to Cook Everything) brings the joy of baking to life in this comprehensive collection of 2,000 recipes demystifying the baking process. He explains its fundamentals, simple techniques, and foundation recipes that serve as springboards for "a number of easy twists" on from-the-oven homemade treats. Bittman is big on improvisational embellishments, adaptability, and recipe flexibility for every diet, and he creates useful "mix-and-match" charts for substitute ingredients, innovative variations, and add-ins. Sidebars contain advice on topics such as the advantages of milling nut flours at home and the importance of cooking with kids. There's the lowdown on gluten, 18 flour types, sweeteners, fats and oils, dairy options, and types of chocolate. Flowcharts, lexicons defining baking terminology, and recommendations for tools and core items to stock in a baker's pantry are also included. The marvels of eggs and every genre of pastry dough, especially puff pastry, are celebrated. This tour through the world of baking doesn't skimp; it has 15 pages on pancakes alone, charts showing ways to dress up cookies, and 10 varieties of fritters. A section on savory baking features cabbage strudel and corn-filled chicken chile cobbler. There's nothing half-baked about this impressive omnibus as Bittman delivers the promised "everything" in an epic homage to baking."--Publishers Weekly "Since How To Cook Everything (1998) and How To Cook Everything Vegetarian (2007) are two of my cookbook staples, I was excited to receive How To Bake Everything: Simple Recipes for the Best Baking (Houghton Harcourt. Oct.), the latest release from food journalist and former New York Times columnist Mark Bittman. From bakeware basics to getting started with brownies, pies, or breads, this work will provide bakers at all levels with something new. My husband has already tried a pound cake recipe, plus some frostings to go along with it. Naturally, I plan to experiment with more recipes while watching PBS's The Great British Baking Show."--Library Journal "Wow! Once again, Bittman shows that he's unafraid of the big. He manages to take on 'everything' to do with baking without losing track of how simple, fun, and delicious it should be."--Yotam Ottolenghi, author of Jerusalem, Plenty, and Nopi "He's taught us how to cook everything before, and now i --

I really haven't looked through it. It is a Christmas gift for my DIL, so I needed to get it wrapped and mailed. Given the size of the book though, I can't imagine that there are any recipes that aren't covered!
