Since opening 25 years ago, Gayle’s Bakery and Rosticceria in Capitola, California, has grown from a humble 800-square-foot shop to one of the largest, most successful fine-quality bakeries in the country. Now in paperback, THE VILLAGE BAKER’S WIFE collects the all-butter, real-sugar, whole-cream, fine-chocolate desserts and pastries that made Gayle’s what it is. With more than 150 recipes, 130 instructional illustrations, and 25 essays on baking techniques, this is the only cookbook you need to make showstopping desserts and pastries, from delicate croissants and flaky puff pastries to sinful German Chocolate Cake and sumptuous Fresh Berry Génoise.
