Praise for The Art & Soul of Baking
    “...when a baking book in which the recipes perform as flawlessly as they do in The Art and Soul of Baking comes out, we’re particularly impressed.”—Gourmet magazine, October 2008, Cookbook Club selection
    “If you buy just one new baking book this season, make it this one. ...covers everything from essential equipment...and pantry staples to chapters on savory breads, quick breads, tarts, pies, cookies and cakes.... The recipes are exceedingly detailed and include do-ahead tips, notes on equipment needed, advice on storing the finished treats and suggestions for variations.”—Associated Press, September 2008
    “Mushet’s invaluable lessons in ensuring oven accuracy, incorporating butter into dough for layered pastries...and the causes of falling soufflés will get novices up to speed.... Those already comfortable with baking will get the most out of the book’s 250 recipes, but there are plenty of dishes well within the reach of those new to crème brûlée and lemon bar construction, making this a great volume to learn and grow with.”—Publishers Weekly, August 2008
    “Many elements combine to make a great cookbook, all of which are in The Art & Soul of Baking. ...the book possesses the singular quality that lifts a cookbook above the rest, and that is the ability to inspire. The Art & Soul of Baking inspires.”—

Best baking book ever!
This book has it all - pizza, bread, croissants, muffins, cake, pies and tarts, souffles, cookies and probably at least 10 things I forgot to list. I admit that I own a lot of cookbooks (can you say over 100?), but this is the one that I go back to time and time again, not only for the great tested recipes that work, but also for the detailed description (and photos!) of proper baking techniques. And if you ever get a chance to take a cooking class by the author, Cindy Mushet, you are in for a treat
