When it was first released in 2002, The Best of BetterBaking.com was an instant bestseller, capturing the hearts of bakers everywhere. With the huge popularity of Marcy’s latest title, A Passion for Baking, the timing couldn’t be better to re-release her baking classic The Best of BetterBaking.com.
Before every home baker had a blog, Marcy was sharing her recipes and baking tips on her groundbreaking website. Its engaging style made it an underground favourite with bakers, and it wasn’t long before the New York Times was praising her site. Today it has 20,000 regular subscribers and about one million visitors a month, making it one of the largest independent baking sites online.
With recipes that range from contemporary to classic and the very best essays from her website, this is an indispensable resource for the discerning baker. Marcy shares her expert insight into ingredients, equipment, and techniques--the best way to roll out a pie crust, how to bake cookies that don’t turn brown at the edges, how to avoid cracks in cheesecakes. Every recipe has been tested, ensuring that these easy-to-follow recipes turn out perfectly every time. Try:
