<b>Learn the art of bread making through techniques and recipes for making pizza dough, challah, bagels, sourdough, and more!</b><br /><br />Co-founder of the legendary Brother Juniper’s Bakery, author of the landmark books <i>Brother Juniper’s Bread Book</i> and <i>Crust & Crumb</i>, and distinguished instructor at the world’s largest culinary academy, Peter Reinhart has been a leader in America’s artisanal bread movement for over fifteen years. Never one to be content with yesterday’s baking triumph, however, Peter continues to refine his recipes and techniques in his never-ending quest for extraordinary bread.<br /><br />In <i>The Bread Baker’s Apprentice</i>, Peter shares his latest bread breakthroughs, arising from his study in several of France’s famed <i>boulangeries</i> and the always-enlightening time spent in the culinary academy kitchen with his students. Peer over Peter’s shoulder as he learns from Paris’s most esteemed bakers, like Lionel Poilâne and Phillippe Gosselin, whose <i>pain à l’ancienne</i> has revolutionized the art of baguette making. Then stand alongside his students in the kitchen as Peter teaches the classic twelve stages of building bread, his clear instructions accompanied by over 100 step-by-step photographs.<br /><br />You’ll put newfound knowledge into practice with 50 new master formulas for such classic breads as rustic <i>ciabatta</i>, hearty <i>pain de campagne</i>, old-school New York bagels, and the book’s Holy Grail: Peter’s version of the famed <i>pain à l’ancienne</i>. En route, Peter distills hard science, advanced techniques, and food history into a remarkably accessible and engaging resource that is as rich and multitextured as the loaves you’ll turn out. This is original food writing at its most captivating, teaching at its most inspired and inspiring—and the rewards are some of the best breads under the sun.

But, despite all of her hard work, there’s no way Rachel could have prevented this party from going awry.<br /><br />Not when someone is murdered right before dinner!<br /><br />Grandma Mallory’s accountant is the victim. It seems he’d learned something that someone wished to keep secret and, with nobody at the party other than members of the family, one of them must be the killer.<br /><br />Unless, that is, it’s the ghost in the attic…<br /><br /><b><u>Book 4, Bodies & Bundt Cake:</u></b><br />How exciting!<br /><br />Rachel is off to spend a weekend serving as a judge for a baking contest! She’s ready to fill her belly with delicious desserts and clear her mind of everything to do with work. But there’s just one problem…<br /><br />Someone has just been murdered, and one of the contestants just may be the killer! And there’s reason to believe that one of Rachel’s closest friends may be next on the criminal’s list!<br /><br />Now, all thoughts of selecting the most talented baker have been replaced by trying to catch the culprit before he or she strikes again!<br /><br />And the clock is ticking…<br /><br /><b><u>Book 5, Weddings & Wine Cake:</u></b><br />Rachel wants nothing more than for her father to be happy. So, when he announces his plans to remarry, in theory, she should be happy for him. But that’s not going to happen. <br /><br />After all, his bride-to-be is young enough to be his daughter! And that does not sit well with Rachel. <br /><br />More than just a bit skeptical and uneasy, she is strongly considering whether or not she will even attend the wedding. But when Scott makes a strong case for supporting her father on his big day, she eventually relents. Soon enough, she learns that she’s not the only one who opposes this union. In fact, the two families seem ready to go to war over it!<br /><br />And one member, in particular, may even resort to murder to get their way...

<B>One of the world's most celebrated bakers in America shares his insider’s secrets to making his delicious, artisanal bread that will have home bakers creating professional-quality products in no time—and inexpensively.</B><BR><BR><I>Bien Cuit</I> introduces a new approach to a proudly old-fashioned way of baking bread. In the oven of his Brooklyn bakery, Chef Zachary Golper creates loaves that are served in New York’s top restaurants and sought by bread enthusiasts around the country. His secret: long, low-temperature fermentation, which allows the dough to develop deep, complex flavors. A thick mahogany-colored crust is his trademark—what the French call <I>bien cuit</I>, or “well baked.” This signature style is the product of Golper’s years as a journeyman baker, from his introduction to baking on an Oregon farm—where they made bread by candlelight at 1 a.m.—through top kitchens in America and Europe and, finally, into his own bakery in the heart of our country’s modern artisanal food scene. <BR> <BR> <I>Bien Cuit</I> tells the story of Golper’s ongoing quest to coax maximum flavor out of one of the world’s oldest and simplest recipes. Readers and amateur bakers will reap the rewards of his curiosity and perfectionism in the form of fifty bread recipes that span the baking spectrum from rolls and quick breads to his famous 24-day sourdough starter. This book is an homage to tradition, but also to invention. Golper developed many new recipes for this book, including several “bread quests,” in which he brilliantly revives some of New York City’s most iconic breads (including Jewish rye, Sicilian lard bread, Kaiser rolls, and, of course, bagels). You will also find palate-pleasing and innovative “gastronomic breads” that showcase his chef’s intuition and mastery of ingredients.<BR> <BR> Golper’s defining technique comes at a time when American home cooks are returning to tradition-tested cooking methods and championing the DIY movement. Golper’s methods are relatively simple and easy to master, with recipes that require no modern equipment to make at home: just a bowl, an oven, and time—the dough does most of the work.

<b>In this follow-up to the IACP award-winning, <i>New York Times</i> best-selling cookbook <i>Genius Recipes</i>, Food52 is back with the most beloved and talked-about desserts of our time (and the under-the-radar gems that will soon join their ranks)—in a collection that will make you a local legend, and a smarter baker to boot.</b><br />  <br /> Drawing from her James Beard Award-nominated Genius Recipes column and powered by the cooking wisdom and generosity of the Food52 community, creative director Kristen Miglore set out to unearth the most game-changing dessert recipes from beloved cookbook authors, chefs, and bakers—and collect them all in one indispensable guide. <br />  <br /> This led her to iconic desserts spanning the last century: Maida Heatter’s East 62nd Street Lemon Cake, François Payard’s Flourless Chocolate-Walnut Cookies, and Nancy Silverton’s Butterscotch Budino. But it also turned up little-known gems: a comforting Peach Cobbler with Hot Sugar Crust from Renee Erickson and an imaginative Parsnip Cake with Blood Orange Buttercream from <i>Lucky Peach</i>, along with genius tips, riffs, and mini-recipes, and the lively stories behind each one. <br />  <br /> The genius of this collection is that Kristen has scouted out and rigorously tested recipes from the most trusted dessert experts, finding over 100 of their standouts. Each recipe shines in a different way and teaches you something new, whether it’s how to use unconventional ingredients (like <i>Sunset</i>’s whole orange cake), how to make the most of brilliant methods (roasted sugar from Stella Parks), or how to embrace stunning simplicity (Dorie Greenspan’s three-ingredient cookies). With photographer James Ransom’s riveting images throughout, <i>Genius Desserts</i> is destined to become every baker's go-to reference for the very best desserts from the smartest teachers of our time—for all the dinner parties, potlucks, bake sales, and late-night snacks in between.
