Finally, a baking book focused entirely on savory baking! Developed by one of America's top pastry chefs, Savory Baking collects 75 inviting recipes for bakers of every skill level. Popovers, scones, and crackers pair perfectly with wine, while galettes, souffles, and strudels work equally well for brunch, lunch, or dinner. Fresh herbs, nuts, mushrooms, meats, and cheeses produce such savory delights as Peppered Pear and Goat Cheese Scones, Canadian Bacon Bread Pudding, and a show stopping New York-Style Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheesecake. Savory Baking is both an ideal guide for adventurous bakers and the ultimate sourcebook for those who prefer savory eats to sweet treats.

It¿s not always la dolce vitaCan I just say, ¿Yum¿? I love to bake, and I love baked goods, but I¿m not actually a huge fan of sweets. At least, not all the time. Savory Baking: Warm and Inspiring Recipes for Crisp, Crumbly, Flaky Pastries is an absolutely terrific recipe collection! Chapter headings are Quick Breads, Flaky Pastries, Rustic, Pastries with Puff, Cookies, and The Side Show.What¿s so savory about cookies? Here are a few of the recipes: Thyme, Lemon, and Sea-Salt Shortbread; Five-Spice Black-and-White Sesame Wafers; and Tarragon-Tomato Stripes. Actually, some of them are sweet and savory like Sour Cream Fig Spirals or Rosemary Fruit Biscotti.What¿s Rustic? How about Creamy Sweet Corn and Proscuitto Crisp or Stilton Cheesecake on a Candied Walnut Crust. Recipes in other chapters run the gamut from Deep Dish Curried Vegetable Pot Pies with Dried Fruits to Seafood Strudel, from Potato and Scallion Biscuits to Sesame Éclairs with Honey-Soy Asparagus.I realize that these sort of recipes won¿t replace a traditional baking book in every cook¿s heart, but really it¿s comparing apples to oranges. Savory Baking is an excellent addition to my extensive cookbook library. Personally, I¿m thrilled with this sophisticated recipe collection.
