    This is a really nice book, it explains in a language everyone can understand how to bake and why we need to do things in a certain way which is quite interesting and has some very nice recipes to try on I m not an experienced baker, I like to bake and eat P but generally avoid complicated recipes as I always feel I will not be able to do them well, so not sure I ll try all in the book, but some for sure

    Brilliant Absolutely brilliant Another cover to cover read Just like the first one This one does not really include bread and there s no need, that s what the first book is for , but it does include different types of pastry, how to make them, possible substitutions, how not to mess them up and what to do in case you do Great job James This one will be in regular use.

    First of all, welcome to a new time for The Hungry Seagull Instead of posting late on Sunday night, I shall be getting posts up on Saturday morning so you have something to enjoy over breakfast as well as the news, Facebook or whatever floats else your boat.This week, I am reviewing another book, James Morton s new ish How Baking Works And What To Do When It Doesn t.I have been using it for the last few months and I have to say it is utterly fantastic As the title suggests, the book attempts to teach the reader basic recipes and techniques and how to sort out problems ranging from hard shortbread to soggy puff pastry.Morton takes a highly methodical approach to the book s layout, with each chapter tackling a different type of bake Cake, sponge, brownie, muffin, torte, biscuit, short pastry, sweet pastry, choux bless you pastry, puff pastry, meringue and macaroons all receive their allotted space.He is not hidebound by his principles, however, and slips in a few odd recipes where they seem most appropriate rather than leave them out For instance, a rather excellent recipe for chocolate fondants finds its way into the brownie section.An introduction covers basics , a collection of need to know sauces and dressings such as caramel sauce, jam and the best crumble topping you will ever experience.It also reveals a unique selling point of medical practitioner Morton s books, his scientific approach to the subject He is far less of a it s all an arcane mystery we must feel our way with than a everything is there for a reason which can be explained kind of baker.His introduction features a description of the key qualities of the basic ingredients of baking, sugar, eggs, flour etc, and their importance to the baking process.This style carries on into the later chapters, where he scientifically explains the why behind each style of bake s basic process and how things might have gone wrong.For instance, he explains the purpose of chilling shortbread before baking it firms the butter up to prevents spreading in the oven and allows the gluten matrix to relax to produce a crumblier shortbread, since you ask.I suspect this reason based approach may also be due to the cheerful blokeishness which suffuses the book There is nothing fussy about is recipes Most measurements are in simple multiples or divisions of 100 and he has a casual disregard for scrimping and scraping to make healthy bakes his advice for soft caramel is Butter And lots of itThe style of the book is very much in this vein simple, unfussy, cheerful The prose is conversational, as if he is speaking to the reader, and the layout is clear and simple with plenty of photographs.I am not entirely sure about the quality of binding I may have been unlucky but a section of pages has already detached from the spine and is hanging by the thread binding just the sort of thing to really annoy this book lover As I say, I may just have been unlucky and it is certainly not a reason to avoid buying the book In fact, I would very much recommend you do and I m sure Morton would roll his eyes and tell me to stuff the pages back in or glue them down.How Baking Works is a fantastic book for a baker of any level but especially for a beginner All the basics anyone could want are in here along with ten skip loads of advice on how to dodge common problems and take ones baking to the next level This book is an indispensable jewel in my collection.Overall A peerless guide to baking, one could not wish for a clearer or thorough companion.Presentation A simple but clear and effective layout is enhanced by Morton s cheerful prose.Quality of Recipes Outstanding, solid basics to set you up for life.Range of Recipes Every basic style of baking is covered while a few experimental recipes are included among them.Price At 20, this is really good price With this much advice it is worth 25.Will I Take This Off The Shelf To Cook From Yes.Published originally on my food blog, The Hungry Seagull

    Great for all levels of bakerI love James Morton s books I have baked for years and have a lot of success, but I wanted to expand my skills and try some new techniques James has covered a whole range of recipes from around the world and delivers the why s, pitfalls and science behind the bakes, which is why I love his style of books Each recipe covers the basics with step by step pictures and then gives lots of ideas for variations I will be making full use of this book Pastry book next please James

    I thought that I d just dip and out of this as needed but I ended up reading it cover to cover It does exactly what the title suggests it tells you how and why baking works and how to correct things for next time when things go wrong Not only that it has some really great looking recipes I ve baked a couple of them and the results are fantastic.Like his first book Brilliant Bread this is going to be something I ll keep coming back to again and again.
