By Lisa Yockelson
Baking is one of the most engaging and animated of all of the kitchen arts. And the style of baking–the visual experience; the lure of the hands-on; the literary expression of it all–is as essential as what you actually stir up in a mixing bowl; compose on a baking sheet; and relay into the oven. Baking Style melds 100 essays and their accompanying recipes; with more than one hundred and fifty full-color images by the award-winning photographer; Ben Fink.
A graduate of the London Cordon Bleu, Lisa Yockelson is an award-winning cookbook author whose articles, essays, and recipes have appeared in national publications such as The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, and Gastronomica: The Journal of Food and Culture. As a baking journalist and recipe developer who concentrates on classic and contemporary American as well as regional European baking specialties, Lisa has spent many professional years establishing methods and techniques for flavor-building and texture-polishing baked goods–two compelling areas that have become a hallmark of her research and form the groundwork for two of her last works, Baking by Flavor and ChocolateChocolate.
Baking Style: Art, Craft, Recipes, her latest and most expansive baking cookbook to date, combines the genre of the culinary essay with recipes, their corresponding methods and illustrative images, revealing the author’s uniquely personal expression of the baking process.
