A sneak peek at Rose Levy Beranbaum's upcoming book

Rose Levy BeranbaumFans of Rose Levy Beranbaum have become better bakers thanks to her exquisite and thorough baking books, starting with Romantic and Classic Cakes, the groundbreaking The Cake Bible, and 2014's The Baking Bible. Rose is not content to rest on her laurels, however, and is busy working on another project titled Baking Basics. She recently posted about the photo shoot for the book on her blog Real Baking with Rose

She takes us inside the whirlwind four-day shoot in Manhattan's Flatiron district. The assistant to the stylist for The Baking Bible, Erin McDowell,  is stepping up to do the styling for the new volume. Erin also has a baking book coming out this fall under the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt imprint, called The Fearless Baker.

It's always interesting to see the behind-the-scenes work that goes into every cookbook. In the four days of the shoot, most of the recipes had to be made on site, making for some long days (and some well-fed office staff). Today's books feature so many gorgeous photographs that it is difficult to remember the days when only a few, if any, recipes merited such treatment. Now it is expected that most of the recipes will have a stunning picture to accompany them.

Judging from the sneak peek that Rose posted on her blog, Baking Basics will be another stellar cookbook. She piqued my interest with the name of one of the recipes, Japanese Milk Bread. Rose did not mention when we could expect the new cookbook, but there are plenty of recipes to keep us busy until the book hits the bookstores. We have the complete collection of Rose's recipes - from her cookbooks and blog as well as recipes in magazines and newspapers - indexed in the EYB Library
