one of my favorite cooknooks that I have read this year. Baking is my prefernce in the kitchen and this books covers not only the sweets such as cookie, cakes, custards and danish (etc); it also covers savory baking such as Tomato Cobbler, Pulled Pork Empanadas and Three Pepper Quiche (etc). It also has a great reference guide and glossery of ingredients if you are a not-to-familiar cook.

A third generation baker and owner of Sono Bakery in Connecticut, John Barricelli is also a familiar face on the Martha Stewart food shows.

The book is divided into chapters: 1) Muffins, Scones, Pastries, Breakfast Cake 2) Cookies, Brownies, Bars 3) Pies and Tarts 4) Cobblers and Crisps 5) Trifles, Mousses and Puddings 6) Cakes 7) Breads and Focaccias 8) Savories: Tarts, Quiches

My first glance through this cookbook, and all it’s wonderful pictures and recipes, and I instantly gained five pounds! Apple Handpies, Raspberry Linzer Bars, SoNo Chocolate Ganache Cake, and Chocolate-filled Almond Macaroons are just the start of the wonderful, decadent recipes within the pages of this book. There are also recipes for Focaccias, Quiches, and breads!

The range of recipes not only gives wonderful choices on what to pick from, but ensures that within these pages, there is something

It's a good baking book in terms of explanation and choices of variation of a recipe. I have yet to try any of the recipe, but definitely will do soon.

I would be better if each of the recipe were included with picture of a finished product. Sometimes it's hard to imagine how would it turn out to.

A few good recipes, but John leaves much to be desired in his articulating the baking process. Not a great resource for baking.

I haven't tried anything from the book yet-but I just have to say that after comparing many recipes before, and being an avid baker myself, I can tell the recipes are top notch. The full color photos of almost every item are gorgeous, and this book includes recipes that you can find many (if any!!) other places, such as cheese danishes, molten chocolate cakes, miniature boston cream pie. They cover cookies, pies, cakes, breads, rolls, scones-the list goes on and on. They must have hundreds of re ...more

I wouldn't drop a bunch of cash to actually buy this book, but it's definitely worth getting at the library. The photographs are fantastic, and there are a number of recipes that sound incredibly yummy, like the Tart Tropezienne or the French Blueberry Tartlets. Overall, this book contains a lot of fairly standard recipes that can be found in the Joy of Cooking or other baking standbys, but it's a really great source of eye candy.

I didn't get a chance to try any of the recipes, but I would love to try the following: Italian Rustic Bread, Uncle Bobby's Chocolate Chunk Cookies, Apple Handpies, and SoNo Chocolate Ganache Cake.

The breads look heavenly and the photos are great. Makes me want to visit the SoNo Bakery!

The glossary at the back is really helpful. He was a good teacher on PBS and I was glad this book came out after the show quit production. His teaching style comes out in his book as well.
