The Fearless Baker is a beautiful, well written baking book loaded with hints and tips for all levels of bakers. The author includes wonderful things in this book: she gives the reader/baker a 'difficulty' level, she tells you how to make it ahead and store it, she gives interesting variations, explains why the recipe works and The Fearless Baker has "pro-tips" just about on every page as well as with the recipes. The pictures are honest, gorgeous and mouth-watering.

This is the definitive baking book for those who want to know more than just how to bake their favorite pastry, but why the combination of ingredients or the particular method creates a specific result. I read it cover to cover after borrowing it from my library, bought a copy for my daughter, but kept it hidden for several days. Almost every day it was hidden, I wished it was available to consult.
