William Morrow Cookbooks Trade Paperback Original An expert pastry chef and master baker offers an all-new approach to seasonal eating with more than 150 can't-fail recipes that bring out the best in each season of the year Seasonal baking is instinctual. In spring, we long for succulent strawberries and ripe apricots; when summer breezes sweep through, a baker's thoughts turn to picnics and peaches; by fall, sugar and spice rule; and then-before we know it-winter's here and we're ready to hibernate with luscious butter cookies, and hallmark holiday tortes. Chef and author Marcy Goldman understands how we bake by the seasons-from quick and easy desserts in summer to hearty and festive wintertime treats. With more than 150 recipes, The Baker's Four Seasons captures exactly the food we crave throughout the calendar year, from delectable baked goods to the ideal accompanying drink. In fall enjoy Old-fashioned Apple Dumplings with Caramel Fondant, Banana Chocolate Chip Sheet Cake, or Pumpkin Pie Latte. As the days turn colder, whip up some winter fare like Chocolate Brownie Bread Pudding, Orange Nutella Cinnamon Buns, and Wonderland White Hot Chocolate. Come spring, try some Pure Strawberry Preserves, Gourmet Maple Cookies, or Red Robin Rooiboos Tea. And for those hot, summer days, cool down with some Raspberry Lemon Muffins, Picnic Basket Dark Fudge Cake, and White Sangria. With the same warmth and inspiration that made her previous book, A Passion for Baking, a favorite of cooks everywhere, and dangerously delicious and easy to execute recipes, The Baker's Four Seasons invites readers to immerse themselves in a delightful culinary journey through the seasons.
