Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This comprehensive compendium of baking (more than 280 recipes!) is from Dan Lepard, known for his much-loved food column in the U.K.'s Guardian newspaper. Featuring new techniques and traditions, Short and Sweet showcases Dan's impressive culinary expertise with such delectable treats as Bourbon Pecan Brownies, Swedish Almond Cake, and Sugar-Crusted Pear Turnovers. From easy breads and gluten-free essentials to classic desserts and light bites, this friendly guide through the ins and outs of baking will earn a trusted place in the kitchen of novice and expert bakers.

Review:

"Dan Lepard's collection of 280-plus baking recipes is a thorough and fun guide designed to be a 'blueprint for great baking at home.' Lepard is a baking columnist for the Guardian in the U.K. Chapters are broken down into categories including 'Breads,' 'Cakes,' 'Cookies & Crackers,' as well as 'Small Things' and a selection of muffins, brownies, and scones. The collection begins with 'Tips & Techniques,' with the goal of making the book a place 'where skills and recipes meet.' Sweet and savory fill the pages. The 'Supper' section includes meal-worthy mozzarella, broccoli and Parma ham tarts; spinach and ricotta pastries; and chicken and leek pies. Puddings from the U.K. (including cherry dick and blackcurrent roly-poly, and tripe and suet mincemeat), Australia's Jammy Lamingtons (cakes used for fundraising similar to Girl Scout cookies in the U.S.), Scotland's pumpkin and cider farls (a pancakelike dish), and oliebollen (fruit donuts from Amsterdam) lend an international flair to the collection. A cheerful and well-thought-out design along with full-page color recipe photos balance out the instructional text, making this the type of book readers will want to bake from."

A great baking cookbook. At the beginning of each section, Lepard describes the important steps and ingredients to be successful in baking breads, pastry, cakes, etc. I feel like I learned a lot just reading these introductions and his tips helped me be confident to create a great puff pastry. There is a great range of recipes, including savory - the Big Match Beef Pie is amazing. There are also many unique recipes that I can't wait to try, like the Brazil Nut Coffee Cake. I love getting this book out when I want a tasty baked treat - I recommend it for anyone with an oven!
