I really like Mimi Shotland Fix and all of her books. Not in love with every recipe but I’m sure she doesn’t expect us to be :)
Great info no matter your skill level or what your goal is.

While looking for books about how to start my home bakery from the ground up, I was reading the reviews of a different book when one of the reviewers suggested this book as the best one on the subject. She was right. I finished this in 2 days - what a wonderful wealth of information!! I was completely in the dark about how to go about starting my own business and this definitely helped fill me in on a lot of gaps. I purchased her other two books and am just waiting for them to arrive. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for interesting tips and straightforward (but well explained) help about how to start your own business the right way. She has included a lot of really great worksheets and information for any level entrepreneur. It is easy to understand and I had tons of my questions answered in this book. If you are thinking about starting a home based bakery, you will learn a lot from this book.

By Reader Writer Runner TOP 50 REVIEWER on Jan. 11 2012
Format: Paperback
This fantastic book will prove invaluable to anyone who has considered starting a food business but needs advice, a push or both to begin. The how-to style deals directly with cooking and baking but the concepts could easily apply to any production business.

Mimi Shotland Fix guides readers through choosing an operating space, making a budget, developing a business plan and marketing products. All this and more she does in an informative and thorough but conversational tone. She even includes recipes and a DVD (for PCs only) with a recipe cost calculator, press release template, ledgers and much more. Even if you have never considered becoming an entrepreneur, this book might inspire you enough to give it a shot!

All the basics for starting a business! Feb. 4 2010
By D. Accardi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Thank you Mimi! This is a fantastic book for anyone who has considered starting their own food business but are not sure where to start. The book deals mostly with cooking/baking but the concepts can easily be applied to any production business. Even if your local health department does not allow you to make your goods at home Mimi identifies other options that will allow you to start your business. Everything from making a budget, figuring out the cost of your products, shelf-life, how to name your company/products, and even free recipes are included! Another fantasic feature is the bonus DVD that includes downloadable forms such as a recipe cost calculator, press release template, expense ledgers and much more. Even if you have never considered becoming an entrepreneur this book is so well written and thorough that it might inspire you enough to give it a shot! Again, thanks for writing this food business bible!

Extremely helpful April 27 2010

I'm happy to report that I filed for my LLC yesterday, and will soon be on my way to baking from my kitchen for our local farmer's market. I couldn't have done this without this book. It helped me realize that starting a business from my home was possible, and the book gave great advice on how to easily make it happen--from the fun stuff like packaging, to the business-related topics like business licenses and accounting. Thank you so much!!!

By B. Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book starts from the very beginning. You get tips about different kitchen set-ups and beginning equipment necessities as well as advancing to finding a special product niche and moving up to an actual baking shop. Very good investment for the money. The worksheets also were helpful.

THIS is the book you need if you are thinking of starting a home business! April 13 2011
By Ginny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is truly inspirational. It clearly guides the home baker step by step in every aspect of starting their own business. Before I read this, I didn't have any idea how to begin the process of starting my own business. I am now a proud business owner, and owe it all to the guidance of this wonderful, informative book. I recommend this book to anyone who is considering starting their own home-based business. Mimi's years of experience and the information she has provided in this book are invaluable, especially the chapter "Making Your Business Legal". Clear guidelines to follow in every chapter, and a book to frequently reference...this is a must have!
