Publishers Text

When Nancy Silverton decided to add sweets to La Brea Bakery's repertoire of artisanal breads, she knew they couldn't be just any sweets. She bakes delicious, rustic pastries that perfectly complement her hearty, country-style bread and that have people lining up morning after morning.

In this book, Nancy shares her passion and expertise in over 150 simple yet thorough recipes of her most scrumptious favorites.

She demystifies doughnuts and guides us through delicious cobblers, scones, muffins, cookies and sinful chocolate confections. She offers a rich array of cakes for all tastes, tarts for all seasons, and savories for those wanting to give their sweet tooth a break. And she also leads us to mastery of the classic pastry doughs: the quick and rich babka, the fine-textured traditional brioche, the famous and flexible croissant, and the pièce de résistance: puff pastry.

An important book from one of the most revered figures in the baking world, this book will most certainly prove to be another Silverton classic.
