The Grand Central Baking Book: Breakfast Pastries, Cookies, Pies, and Satisfying Savories from the Pacific Northwest's Celebrated Bakery by Piper Davis and Ellen Jackson
The Grand Central Baking Book: Breakfast Pastries, Cookies, Pies, and Satisfying Savories from the Pacific Northwest's Celebrated Bakery

jenniferakirk, October 6, 2009

I just purchased The Grand Central Baking Book--it's beautiful and filled with recipes for the same items sold at bakery--scaled for the home baker. The photos and instructions are true "Piper". She tells you where you have to follow the recipe exactly and where you can be creative. I can almost hear her no-nonsense explanations and hints. Even though it was just released today, I've already made (successfully) several of the recipes in the cookbook as I've been taking the in store classes and collected recipes from the bakery and The Oregonian. I can't wait to try the Irish Soda Bread--my favorite treat from the bakery. The book is beautifully made, nice heavy paper, artist quality photos, instructional step by step photos--she gives you every tip and trick to create beautiful, rustic, delicious baked goods at home. It's a fun read too.
