Product description

Review

"Karen's desserts just make me happy. They are tasty and incredibly balanced. The recipes, which are straightforward and easy to follow, are just as much fun to make as they are to eat."
--Michael Symon

""The Craft of Baking" is the kind of book you will use endlessly in the kitchen. With grace and ease, Karen DeMasco shares the secrets to her deft and delectable desserts. My only question is which sweet to try first!"
--Gail Simmons

"Karen DeMasco may be a professional baker, but she's a home baker at heart. In this book she has transformed all the pastry techniques and tricks she has learned over the years into accessible and delicious desserts."
--Emily Luchetti

"Karen DeMasco's brilliant work encompasses the best of classic French and Italian techniques in playful and delicious recipes that feel new and are delightfully American. I want to have the brown butter waffles for breakfast tonight!"
--Mario Batali

"I have always admired Karen's ability to craft the simplest of desserts into the most sublime. Nobody does it better! We all have a great deal to learn from her."
--Claudia Fleming

"For the past few years, pastry chefs have wowed us with esoteric creations. But Karen DeMasco reminds us that, really, nothing is better than a piece of cake."
--Andrew Carmellini
"It's the rare cookbook that manages to make the didactic delicious, but "The Craft of Baking" succeeds effortlessly. Karen DeMasco not only places her mouthwatering recipes in your hands, she actually encourages you to tinker with them, leaving room for inspiration as it strikes. Smart, innovative, and endlessly delectable, this is a cookbook that entertains as it instructs: read it and learn."
--Dan Barber
"DeMasco makes you eager to turn on the oven"
- Associated Press
