Great book  April 15, 2011

I needed the textbook for school. This cheap textbook was in new condition and was at a reasonable price. The entire process is covered with an attention to the science behind why baking works: from major ingredient groups to how sweeteners, fats and leavening agents affect appearance, flavor and texture, this is a 'must' for any serious culinary collection.






How Baking Works : Exploring the Fundamentals of Baking Science: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.
