A vibrantly illustrated beginner’s baking guide offering expert instruction from James Beard Award-winning pastry chef Emily Luchetti.

What could be more satisfying than presenting friends and family with a perfectly crafted homemade dessert, fresh out of the oven? Yet for many, the idea of baking is intimidating; rolling out pie dough or making a cake from scratch is akin to climbing Mount Everest. THE FEARLESS BAKER is a beginner’s baking guide written to empower home cooks with spot-on advice and a cache of go-to recipes. Renowned pastry chef Emily Luchetti conducted training sessions with real-life novice bakers to discover their most common pitfalls and troubleshoots throughout the book with time-tested techniques. Charming color illustrations and photographs of real-life beginning bakers in action complete the instruction, turning even the most tentative baker into a fearless one.
