To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Love this cookbook, bought it for a Christmas gift and have decided I might like one for myself. Found several recipes I’d like to try. Excellent additional information with well written instructions. As a retired family and consumer science teacher I highly recommend this book.
My daughter (9) received a different baking book for her birthday in February, and the recipes in it were horrible (typos in the ingredients list - literally calling for 5.5 CUPS of baking powder, instructing eggs to be mixed in with the dry ingredients, etc.). I bought The Complete Baking Book for Young Chefs for her to replace it, and it is exactly what I was hoping for.
The instructions are thorough and clear, and the recipes are delicious! At first my daughter was just flipping through and making the recipes that sounded good, but after I took a look myself, I asked her if she would just go through and make each one! I am a baker myself, so I have a real appreciation for how this book not only provides recipes that produce delicious results, but teaches kids proper technique in the process. We will be purchasing the cook book in this line as well. Really, really a wonderfully executed book.
