Baking Artisan Pastries and  Breads: Sweet and Savory Baking for Breakfast, Brunch, and  Beyond
Hitz,  Ciril (Author)
ISBN:  159253564X

Subject:  Cooking | Courses & Dishes | Bread
Including step-by-step process photos of  techniques, award-winning pastry chef and teacher Hitz ("Baking Artisan Bread") provides a solid foundation for bakers to produce  professional-looking baked goods. Following an introduction that  discusses ingredients, equipment, and techniques, recipes (from  breakfast muffins to lemon brioche doughnuts) are progressively  presented from the easiest to the more complex. Listed ingredients  are measured in metric, weight, and volume. Also included are  conversion charts; lists of online resources, tools, equipment, and  organizations; and a glossary. An excellent plus is the 20-minute  instructional DVD, which teaches advanced methods such as rubbing,  creaming, and blending. Highly recommended for beginning bakers.  - Library Journal, December 15, 2009
