The Art of Fine Baking is a facsimile edition of a 1961 classic. Paula Peck writes with a voice shaped by her time: she has the desire to educate and does it straightforwardly. She is perfect for today's cooks, particularly those who grew up without a mother or grandmother in the kitchen to demonstrate what baking is about. The Art of Fine Baking will help you develop or refine your skills, without intimidating you with the compulsive, perfectionist edge of say, Rose Levy Beranbaum. Cooks will enjoy a look at the time when the classic French tradition held sway. You will be tempted by the simple allure of butter-crusted tarts, fruit-filled puff pastries, and the nearly forgotten pleasures of frangipane.From the Back Cover:
