Product description

Review

“At last! For years I’ve been getting tantalizing previews of BakeWise when Shirley would call with her most recent baking mystery or cogitations or discovery. Our talks were always eye-openers, and always left me hungry to have That Book. Well here it is, and it’s been worth the wait. Shirley’s thoroughness and doggedness and enlightened common sense will make BakeWise a treasure for novices and advanced bakers alike. And her warmth and sheer delight in baking—and savoring the results!—make every page a pleasure to read.”
—Harold McGee, Author of On Food and Cooking

“The hardest thing in all of cooking is how to be a creative baker and Shirley Corriher’s BakeWise is the best book you can own to find out the how and why of it all. I will reach for BakeWise before flour and eggs.”
—Ethan Becker, Coauthor of the Joy of Cooking

“Finally, Moses has come down the mountain with another five commandments.”
—Alton Brown, Host of Food Network’s Good Eats and Author of I’m Just Here for the Food

“’What does Shirley Corriher say about that in CookWise?’ was often my reply to students who asked me cooking questions that I couldn’t answer. But BakeWise is the book I’ve really been waiting for, specifically focused on all that dough wisdom, yes, but also containing some of the best recipes in the known baking and pastry universe, each one illustrating a dynamic baking principle. I will be making full use of this book for years to come.”
—Peter Reinhart, Johnson & Wales University, and Author of Peter Reinhart’s Whole Grain Breads: New Techniques, Extraordinary Flavor

“Specific, learned, and precise, BakeWise is the ultimate teaching guide on baking, elucidating many baking mysteries, from the fluctuation of your oven temperature to the size of the air bubble in your beaten egg whites.”
—Jaques Pépin, Dean of Special Programs at the French Culinary Institute and Author of Chez Jacques: Traditions and Rituals of A Cook
