Golden book indeed!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Golden Book of Baking: Over 300 Great Recipes (Hardcover)
An excellent baking book.
On the practical front, measurements are given both in cups (US units) and in grams, which makes recipes easy to follow, whatever system you wish to use.
All recipes are clearly explained and mouthwateringly photographed, making the book a real joy to flick through if you are trying to find inspiration as to what to bake.
There are over 300 recipes to choose from, classified in the following chapters:
-Cookies, bars and brownies
-Pies and tarts
No anecdotes to explain the origin or story behind the cakes and bakes, so the book is not a "good read" as such but it is an inspiring reference which I would definitely recommend...
