When I want bake something easy yet fantastic, who do I turn to? Nick Malgieri. When I want bake something really spectacular, who do I turn to? Nick Malgieri. I have tons of cookbooks, but when I want to be sure the compliments will keep flowing, I turn to Nick Malgieri. I have acquired a great reputation as a baker because of Nick Malgieri. From supernatural brownies to fabulous cakes and cookies, I can always depend on his recipes to deliver great results without too much effort. Now Malgieri turns his attention to bread, taking his expertise in teaching baking to the somewhat intimidating subject of bread. Despite the recent trend of making bread by letting yeast doughs sit for hours and cooking it in a heavy cast iron pan, good bread has remained a difficult thing to achieve because we home cooks don't have the specialized ovens of bakeries to get the great texture and crust. No more. Malgieri opens up the world of bread to us common folk with regular ovens and shows with great illustrations and easy-to-follow instructions how to make a variety of breads--60 in all--including yeast breads, whole grains, flatbreads, coffeecakes and filled breads. But in typical Malgieri style, he takes it up a notch by including recipes that use the breads you have made from scratch. Talk about impressing your friends and family! Now when I want make fantastic breads and dishes that use that bread, once again I will turn to Nick Malgieri.
