Hitz, Ciril (Author)
Publisher: Quarry Books
Binding/Price/Pages: Paperback, $24.99 (176p)
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
