Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In preparing this collection, Caprial and Melissa poured through their recipe files, winnowing them down to 50 core recipes, each grounded in the chefs' shared appreciation of wholesome, comforting, no-nonsense desserts that beg to be made time and again. Clear step-by-step photographs put you alongside Caprial and Melissa in their kitchen as they share their secrets for making extraordinary pie dough, working wonders with an ice cream machine, perfecting the delicate art of puff pastry, and numerous other essentials of the sweet kitchen. If you are new to baking, this book will give you the confidence, inspiration, and skills to build a solid dessert repertoire; if you are an experienced baker, it will help you hone classic techniques and push you to new levels of creativity and improvisation in the kitchen.

Synopsis:

The result is a truly essential collection of classic and contemporary recipes for cakes, pies, and tarts; custards and puddings; ice creams and sorbets; and cookies and special-occasion desserts. 60 illustrations.

Synopsis:

The chef/owner and the pastry chef of Caprial's Bistro in Portland, Oregon, deliver this deeply satisfying, truly essential collection of 67 classic dessert recipes and their contemporary variations, with full-color photography and detailed illustrations.

I am always a little apprehensive about celebrity cookbooks, books on baking and pastry, but this has amazing recipes that work. The pie crust recipes are especially great because they call for butter and shortening, resulting in a tender and flaky crust that tastes great, unlike butter only recipes. The coconut cream cake and german chocolate cake are very moist and decadent. The only major problem is the lack of photos. They do have some, but I wish they had more. I will NEVER understand or agree with cookbooks that are put out and do not contain photos for the majority of the recipes. I would like to know what the end product will and should remotely look like. Also, I have tried more tender, chewy cookie recipes. However, aside from the cookie recipes these are such decadent, yet simple (even the more labor intensive ones are easy to follow) desserts that are well structured and reliable that I highly recommend this book.
