Bouchon Bakery opens with “Pecan Sandies for My Mom,” Keller’s intimate reflection on the link between food and personal identity. The pages beyond offer more than 150 recipes, 250 color photographs, memorable stories and smatterings of friendly advice. It’s a huge and happiness-inducing collection of breads, cookies, scones, muffins, cakes, tarts, pate à choux, brioche, croissants, confections and so much more.
Keller and his team share ingenious ways to ensure their recipes taste the same when made in a home kitchen as they do in the bakery. Every page of the book offers a new lesson: a trick to ensure uniformity, a subtle twist that enhances texture, a series of step-by-step photographs that clarify a new technique. With recipes that run the gamut from simple to sublime, this is a book that will be cherished for years to come.
