Artisan; First Edition
If you enjoyed Thomas Keller's last cookbook, Ad Hoc at Home, this one is certain to please you just as much. Not only does this book contain recipes for deliciously sinful baked goods, there are anecdotes, instructionals, and even a few science lessons! Did you know that using butter in a tart dough is actually shortening the long gluten strands? Neither did we! With everything from dog treats to streusel to baguettes and pretzels, from sweet to savory, all taste buds will appreciate this book.
As with Keller's previous book, the photography is as glorious as the recipes. This is a perfect gift idea for those cooks and bakers in your life.
