Chicago-based chef and educator Kristin Hoffman (aka Baker Bettie) puts a firm emphasis on teaching home bakers the core skills they need, based on sound science. Hoffman carefully explains the ‘how’ as well as the ‘why.’ It also helps that her recipes – such as Boston Cream Pie, Cinnamon Rolls, and Strawberry Shortcakes – are indulgent and fun. “Use this book to celebrate the joy of baking,” says Hoffman, which pretty much sums it up.
