Review:

"Who knew a dinner roll could look so beautiful? A dozen pillow-like puffs of dough, perfectly dusted with flour, one split open and topped with ample pats of butter, grace the pages of this inspiring title. The Mitchell mother-and-daughter team is behind the Napa-located Model Bakery and here, reader's will find 75 of the bakery's recipes. Chapters are broken down by Breads, Yeasted Sweets, Breakfast Favorites, Cakes, Pies and Tarts, and Cookies. Beginning bakers may feel somewhat intimidated by the lengthy instructions in recipes and by sections such as the 6-page wedding cake spread, and the noted 'pricy'-to-prepare Chocolate-Raspberry Cake, but those comfortable with a bowl and whisk will delight in the perfected Morning Bun recipe, the multigrain bread, Struan loaf, and the ideal-for-company Plum Galette. Not for the beginner, the book includes beautiful photographs with top-notch food styling, making this a favorite to keep in the kitchen, or the coffee table." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Carol Y, November 5, 2013 (view all comments by Carol Y)
The Model Bakery is a 30 year old treasured institution in the Napa Valley and I've been visiting them for 25, so I might be a bit biased in my review. The best thing about the recipes are all the tips, which help the home baker get reproducible results. The recipe for my favorite Morning Buns is included, among many other goodies and breads the bakery is known for. The instructions are clear and thorough, but concise. The pictures are gorgeous, and the stories are interesting. Some of the recipes may be a bit basic for some, but there are several unique ones that will please an intermediate baker. A worthwhile addition to my cookbook collection.
