A big beautiful cookbook for the ambitious home baker. Great profiles of bakers across the country and makes you realize the incredible amount of work and commitment it takes to be in that business! Yes, some of the recipes are time-consuming and/or complicated, but the results have been consistently excellent.
I gave this cookbook 4/5 stars only because some of the ingredients/tools are relatively hard to come by, and most of the recipes are advanced. However, for the intermediate or advanced baker, this book is a wonderful addition to any collection - really really nice photos, too!
