Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nick Malgieri has journeyed far and wide during his thirty-plus years working as a professional baker. His experiences abroad have always informed the flavors and techniques of his recipes. Now the award winning master baker transports the world's greatest kitchens and bakeries to your home with this inspired gathering of more than one hundred cookies, cakes, breads, sweet and savory pastries, pies, and tarts, from the baking traditions of thirty-nine countries.

Look no further for chewy naan from India, rich chocolate Millennium Torte from Vienna, and crisp cannoli from Sicily. With A Baker's Tour at your fingertips, you don't have to tour Monaco for Prince Albert's puff pastry cake, Poland for the lightest, most flavorful babka, or Argentina for perfectly seasoned beef empanadas — you don't even have to go to country-specific cookbooks.

The recipes here range from casual to sophisticated, and all have been adapted for American use, ensuring consistent, delicious results without sacrificing flavor. Supplemented by illuminating food facts and anecdotes, and illustrated with gorgeous full-color photographs, Nick Malgieri's A Baker's Tour is a satisfying and educational international collection of inviting, delicious recipes for home cooks and food lovers everywhere.

Review:

"Malgieri (Perfect Cakes, etc.) is a savvy guide to a panoply of breads, pastries, cakes and cookies made beyond America's borders. Though the European traditions of France, Italy, Austria and Switzerland prevail, he reaches as far as Syria, Jamaica, China and Egypt for dishes as familiar as Chinese Pork Buns and as exotic as Habibi Gullas Bakari (spicy meat pie in filo crust). Malgieri is a likable teacher who begins every section with technique fundamentals and opens each of the clear, precise recipes with a slice of history or a personal anecdote. However, this remains a book for experienced bakers armed with their own standing mixers (used in many recipes) who are ready to tackle complex Gallette des Rois (Three Kings Puff Pastry Cake), St. Gallen Kostertarte (chocolate pastry raspberry jam tart) or Sephardic Baklava. Malgieri excels in the cake section, where he revels in the complexities of Cassata alla Siciliana (ricotta-filled cake) and Kardinalschnitten (Austrian Cardinal Slices); his bread section is least satisfying, with intricate instructions for Lavash and Naan that are almost certain to frustrate. But overall, he does a good job of proving that for skilled bakers, it is a small world after all. Color photos." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

From a celebrated author, teacher, and baker comes a new collection: the greatest sweet and savory baked goods from around the world. 100+ recipes from 39 countries. Full-color photos throughout.
