Beautiful book. The recipes are elegant and stunning. The pictures captivate the reader and leave you craving something hot and amazing out of the oven. The recipes work in seasonal fruits at the peak of perfection. The crusts are crisp and golden while the breads are soft and aromatic.
The instructions are simple with fairly common ingredients.
A nice touch is the brief interviews of various bakers from around the country. Each offer their own perspective of baking and share a recipe. Grab a cup of coffee and pour over this book as if you were visiting with a friend. Kim Laidlaw has put together a book that was meant to be handed down to future generations – preferably covered in stains with sticky pages.
