I grew up making cookies and bread with my Mom, but this is the book that really taught me to bake: not to blindly follow a recipe, but to know what the different ingredients do, and how to improvise. I can't tell you the last time I actually followed a recipe from this book, but that's not the point, as I see it.

If only there were photos! But I was really impressed at the scope & detail in this volume. Definitely a great addition for serious bakers. Fun history to read the history of the company too.

This is one of an excellent series by King Arthur on baking--having been to their store in Northfield a number of times, I can see that they have alot of experience with baking and took a long time to go from there to doing cookbooks, which is a good way to do it--these recipes work and are delicious
Nikki
This is an older cookbook, published when King Arthur Flour had only one or two widely available flours, so nearly every recipe calls for all-purpose flour, which is a good thing for beginning bakers or those who live where specialty flours are scarce. This would be a great book for someone who wants to learn to bake and is not gluten-free!

Whenever you feel like baking, pull this off the shelf because there's always something tempting and simple for which you probably already have the ingredients. I like everything I've made from here so far. And there are helpful tips too like different baking times for different baking pans you might use.
