A baking Bible for professional and amateur alike, what Dan Lepard cannot teach you about baking isn’t worth knowing. Both a fabulous recipe developer and an engaging writer, this is a cookbook to get wrapped up in with easy-to-follow recipes that really do work time and time again.
Whenever I think I've come up with an interesting or original flavour combination, I consult Short and Sweet, because inevitably, Dan Lepard has got there before me. This is so much more than a baking primer: it is thoughtful, smart, and delicious.

When I was teaching myself to bake, this is the book I turned to most regularly. Lepard’s recipes are clear and concise and, most importantly, they work.

Not having a sweet tooth I need a baking book in my life. This is the one.
