Cookbook: The Baking Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum
Overall Impression: Living up to its formidable title, The Baking Bible provides detailed, authoritative instructions to create exceptional cakes, cookies, and breads.
You know those recipes that, at first glance, look simple and fast but in fact turn out to be long or laborious? Happily, The Baking Bible puts up no such facade. Each recipe is broken down so specifically that none fits on a single page — a positive thing when it comes to baking recipes. All that detail ensures the results are as delicious in reality as they sound on the page.
