I never thought I would write a five-star review of a cookbook. So far, this book has been a great push for me to advance my baking repertoire. Found a recipe for the most amazing buttercream frosting without any grit at all! Love the explanations of cooking techniques and plan to find more books by this author. It is a great reference for beginners and more advanced bakers alike. A huge thanks to my in-laws for purchasing this off my Amazon Wish list for my birthday this year.

Recommends it for: anyone who loves to bake.
Mr. Malgieri's simple two word statement "bake something" helps me to do just that! He uses these two words in both of the books of his I have.

overall it is good book for basic baking techniques. i loved the pictures they look delicious. i also liked how you can play with the recipe. the only thing i felt that this book does not have enough recipes i mean in the bread section there are just very few excamples of recipes and in the cookies too.
His perfect white pan bread is divine. I have also tried the perfect merinque buttercream which is the same recipe as usual but his directions should make it seem easy even for the novice baker. Also made the rye bread and fococcia. His is superb as usual
