it was amazing
Read in December, 2008

I love this book! I have become a big fan of Shirley after watching her on Alton Brown. This is not your ordinary cook book. Instead of just giving you a recipe she tells you the purpose for the ingredients and the science behind baking. This is great because you can now have the tools to tweak your own recipes. I also love her tips for tempering chocolate. The only thing I wish the book had was more pictures. Also the cookie section could use more information. I saw her once on television saying if you want chewy cookies add more egg yolk if you want cakey cookies add more flour, etc.. I was hoping to find that info in the cookie section but not so much. Other than those few things this is now my new favorite baking book.
