Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Those of us who bake understand that baking is about a sense of satisfaction, a sense of sharing. Especially these days, when time is our most valuable commodity, taking the time to make something that doesn't just feed the family but is meant as a reward is a gift that can be as gratifying for the giver as it is for the receiver. If you're ready to feel that sense of satisfaction and sharing, then it's time to get back to baking.

Format: Hardcover
As a professional baker, I've waded through my share of dessert cookbooks but rarely have I found one containing such accessible, delicious and fool-proof recipes as does Anna Olson's "Back to Baking."

Olson's natural talent and curiosity combined with her culinary education, work in top-rated restaurants, hosting of Food Network shows and authoring of several cookbooks make her the perfect person to write a baking bible. Indeed, she covers many topics including pies and tarts, cakes, custards, holiday desserts and goods for those with dietary concerns (dairy-free, egg-free, low-fat and gluten-free). Some of my already-favourites include kitchen sink muffins, peanut butter Naniamo bars and chocolate cake with caramel frosting. But every end product has the perfect texture, appropriate sweetness and deep hints of citrus, spice and other aromatics.

Despite the book's beautiful photos, Olson said in an interview with The Vancouver Sun, "don't just make a recipe because the photo is attractive. Read the recipe and make sure the process is also attractive to you." To ensure your baking experience goes as smoothly as possible, Olson's book begins with an informative chapter called Before You Bake, providing tips on measuring accurately, mixing, making baking-pan choices and selecting baking ingredients. In her recipes, she also provides as many visual clues as possible to let you know you're on the right track, such as indicating if the batter should look thin, or if it should be a little lumpy.

For someone just learning to bake, she recommends beginning with a treat thoroughly covered in her book: cookies. "They always turn out and if they are not quite right, it's not a big deal," Olson said. Wise advice from a talented Canadian baker.

I am happy with this cookbook. I'm a big fan of Anna, and am so happy she's focusing on baking again. The book is lovely, full of great basic and stepped-up recipes, fabulous tips, insights and wisdom. It is just a little lacking in pictures.

I have to say i have enjoyed watching Anna on the TV, she is a great instructional chef and that is what brought me to this book, agreed the book could have done with more photographs of the finished products and more recipes pertaining to her tv show but all in all it's a great book to have and will be used often alongside the recording I have of her programs.

Easy to follow recipes. So far idiot proof, unlike a lot of cook books. I highly recommend it to anybody who bakes

I have baked more than 20 recipes from this book so far and have yet to find one that doesn't come out as described or shown. Among our favourites so far: Banana Walnut Bread made with almond or soy milk, Coconut Cake with Seven-Minute Frosting, Basic Brown Sugar Cookies that children can make, White Chocolate Raspberry Lime Cheesecake, Frosted Banana Nut Bars with orange flavouring, and Cranberry Spelt Drop Scones. The recipes are easy but far from boring and show a lot of imagination in combining ingredients for a delicious result. You will find a lot of unique recipes. I also like that the directions are clear but not over-explained. There are a lot of good photos but not every recipe is illustrated..... my only disappointment with this book.

Lovely cook book with pictures and new ideas. Can't wait to bake more of the recipes. This book is full of appealing bars, cookies, cakes and cupcakes.

What a wonderful cookbook. Great classic recipes that evoke childhood memories of mom baking gingerbread cake and serving it warm with real whipped cream and applesauce folded into it. Would have liked to have calorie/fat etc ingredients.. The tips are helpful and love the "dairy free....gluten free" tabs.
