This book is where I first learned to try things I was originally too timid for. The recipes were clear and excellently presented - it made everything seem achievable. It also introduced me to names that became my guideposts in the baking world. I'm so grateful for this book - I used to pull it off my mom's shelf when I first started baking, and I pull it off my own today.
