Book Description

1 Nov 2003
Baking is a science. But who wants to spend hours in the kitchen experimenting? Thankfully, Sarah Phillips does. She has discovered what causes baking disasters and shows bakers at all levels of expertise how to avoid them. With unique tips and exhaustively tested recipes, Baking 9-1-1 takes the guesswork out of baking and explains: * How to make a cake that won't fall in the middle * What it takes to bake a flaky piecrust * The easiest way to prevent a cheesecake from cracking * How to make the perfect chocolate chip cookie that's thick and chewy * The trick to storing baked goods * The answers to niggling questions such as "Does butter really need to be room temperature?" and "What is the difference between one cup flour sifted and one cup sifted flour?" among many others. The recipes in Baking 9-1-1 solve bakers' most frustrating problems. They include an all-purpose pie dough, a lemon meringue pie that doesn't sweat, thick and rich chocolate ganache fudge sauce, no-fuss buttermilk biscuits, and dozens more. Baking 9-1-1 is the source for foolproof answers that simply can't be found anywhere else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best How-to baking book ever! 28 July 2005
By Leslie Estes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you love to bake - BUY THIS BOOK! I read it for hours the first day I received it & thoroughly enjoyed the hundreds of tips & chemistry `lessons'. Alton Brown once said - "while cooking is art, baking is not -- it is mostly chemistry" - & as such, this book helps you understand why your brownies fell in the middle or why your whole wheat bread isn't rising... It takes you step-by-step into the how's & why's of baking unlike any other book I've seen.

Also, don't hesitate to use the author's great "Ask Sarah" website if you have a problem that isn't covered in her book ([...] Sarah is very quick to respond. I am a professional baker (we manufacture Java Bites Espresso Cookies sold here on Amazon) & she helped me out of a jam during the early recipe developement of this cookie line.

One note of caution: If you are looking for another recipe book - this is not it. While the recipes in her book are excellent, you won't find them in abundance. This is more of a how-to-bake-practically-anything book, with a sampling of recipes to support all the tips. You can find a plethora of recipes on her site though.

Good luck - & happy baking!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent baking book, no other needed 14 Dec 2004
By party girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am an excellent cook and baker--Trial by error. However, upon reading and purchasing this book, it added to my knowledge and explained why certain things occurred. Normally, I would know certain procedures to follow just through trial and error, however, this book tells you why. It gives you the nuts and bolts. You know how parents would say "do, this or that, and really didn't say why, they just knew. Well, sarah says, do this and that and then tells you why.

5.0 out of 5 stars An indispensable reference and cookbook in one! 26 Jan 2004
By mark breslauer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have over 125 cookbooks and some are never used. I use this one all the time, and it never fails. Sarah's instructions are clear and concise and really work. The tips and explanations of common baking problems and questions fill in so many blanks. It all makes sense now. The recipes are great, too. Delicious sponge cake and chocolate chip bars. Thanks, Sarah!

5.0 out of 5 stars comprehensive guide 15 Nov 2003
By Judy Saffan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Whatever your level of expertise, this book can help you. Whatever your question, you will find the answer in this book. Sarah makes the world of baking less intimidating to the novice while also addressing more sophisticated techniques for the more skilled baker. No baker should be without this book in the kitchen!

5.0 out of 5 stars most used cookbook in my kitchen! 1 Mar 2004
By Kelley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
As a frequent baker, I am always searching for recipes that create wonderful cakes with great ease. Sarah's book is a blessing! I can honestly say that I haven't had a failed recipe. Sarah makes sense of all those rules of baking, and it's much more fun and relaxing for me. My copy of her book is splashed with butter and chocolate and who knows what else..a sure sign of a well-loved cookbook. Thank you Sarah for the great book!
