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 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.

This is one of my favourite cookbooks. I have tried many of the recipes and all were worth it. Some have become regulars in our house. The recipes are very easy to follow and have given me the confidence to try even more. I will admit to being an Anna Olsen fan, but this book is worth a try.

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.

After viewing Baking with Anna on television I was glad to see a book which also features foundation recipes and how to do its for many baked goods. There are recipes with helpful hints and educational reminders of why and when to do certain things. I learned to bake from my Mom and Grandma and followed what I learned in school home economics from Mrs Grant. Now I am learning why I was taught many procedures and tricks.
12 years of struggling with gluten free baking and finally there are some trust worthy baked goods resembling my childhood favs.

This baking book was purchased as a gift to a friend who loves to bake. Anna Olson has put together a lovely collection of recipes with easy to follow instructions for the novice to the experienced baker. There is a full section on basic baking know-how and a nice index and Anna adds tips and suggestions and anecdotes throughout the book which make it even more interesting. The illustrations and paper are exquisite - very gift appropriate for a friend, a family member or for treating yourself.

Lots of photo step by step instruction and tasty creations. Had no problem following the recipe for chocolate torte and looking forward to trying more. Recommend getting a book stand as it it heavy and difficult to keep open on kitchen counter.

I have been watching Anna's new cooking show and am learning so many tips however trying to remember everything she shares with her viewers like myself is not easy. This book has been great and I have been trying out new recipes I would never had dared do before.
