Top 10 Cookbooks

Baking: From My Home to Yours, one of GAYOT's Top 10 Cookbooks

Baking: From My Home to Yours
By Dorie Greenspan
(Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2006)

The author of nine cookbooks, including Baking with Julia (the book that accompanied Julia Child's PBS series), Dorie Greenspan has been called a "culinary guru." Baking: From My Home to Yours is Greenspan's first book in which she isn't sharing the spotlight with another baking expert. In it, she offers 230 of her homey recipes presented in a style that is expert, yet warm. Detailed instructions are part of what makes this one of the world's greatest baking books. Its other great feature is the variations she offers on many of the recipes, allowing the home cook to conquer one recipe and then build a repertoire from mastering one technique. The book includes recipes from breakfast sweets, like allspice crumb muffins, to savory cheddar scones, thumbprint cookies, coconut cake and exotic treats, such as gingered lime and mango meringue pie.
