I’ve had cause for celebration lately, so I went out this afternoon and bought a new baking book, one I’ve been hearing quite a lot about. It’s Baking by Dorie Greenspan, and if you haven’t heard of Dorie Greenspan, you need to stay in more. Baking.
There really aren’t enough superlatives to describe Dorie Greenspan as a baker and baking book author. She is one of the very, very few bakers who works in the tradition of Julia Child, testing, testing and re-testing recipes until they’re foolproof. In fact she wrote Julia Child’s legendary baking book Baking with Julia, as well as two award-winning books for Pierre Hermé.
Those are some serious creds. Nice to see she finally decided to step out and write a book under her own name. I can’t wait to get into it.
