Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Corn muffins with cheddar and scallions

    • Kinhawaii on July 09, 2022

      These were good but not wow. I’d rather eat them as an accompaniment. I was too lazy to grease the pan so used liners, which they stuck to a little & didn’t make as nice a crust. They really filled up the liners before baking.

  • Manchego and chorizo muffins

    • Lsblackburn1 on March 06, 2022

      Very tasty! I used muffin papers so I wouldn’t have to grease the tins. Paper stuck a little, but not too bad. These had just the right amount of kick from the cayenne.

  • Lamb phyllo pie

    • Lsblackburn1 on May 01, 2022

      Made this for a dinner party and everyone loved it. Easy to make ahead and then bake later.I used currents instead of raisins.

  • Feta-dill zucchini bread with feta butter

    • KathyCookinginSeattle on July 26, 2022

      Yummy! I didn't make the feta butter b/c I like to eat bread plain. Great use of abundant zucchini crop that's not a sweet bread. Great for breakfast!

  • Chicken b'stilla

    • Ishie1013 on April 27, 2022

      This was incredible. I’ve always loved b’stilla but it’s very hard to find. This will be my go to recipe.

Publishers Text

Baking is about a lot more than just desserts. This unique collection, one of the few to focus solely on the savory side of baking, explores a multitude of flavor possibilities. Get inspired by creative twists like gochujang-filled puff pastry pinwheels or feta-studded dill-zucchini bread. And sample traditional baked goods from around the world, from Chinese lop cheung bao to Brazilian pão de quejo.

Our flexible recipes let you keep things simple by often using store-bought doughs and crusts, or go all out and make them from scratch using our foolproof methods. No matter what kind of baker you are, you’ll be inspired by the irresistible flavors, from everyday biscuits to showstopping breads, including:

Quick breads, scones, biscuits, and pastries: Turn scones savory with panch phoran, an Indian spice blend with cumin, fennel, and mustard seeds. Bake the flakiest biscuits ever, packed with fresh sage and oozing with melty Gruye`re. Even danish goes savory with goat cheese and Urfa chile.

Tarts, galettes, and pies: Jamaican spiced beef patties or a flaky galette with corn, tomatoes, and bacon will be your new favorite lunch (or breakfast, or snack). Or make pizza chiena, the over-the-top Italian double-crusted pie of eggs, cheeses, and cured meats.

Batter and stovetop “bakes”: Popovers bursting with blue cheese and chives dress up dinner, while bread pudding with butternut squash and spinach makes the brunch table. And savory pancakes are for anytime, whether you choose Chinese congyóubing or Korean kimchi jeon.

Flatbreads, pizza, rolls, and loaves: Try alu paratha, the Northern Indian potato-stuffed flatbread. Shape mushroom crescent rolls or a challah enlivened by saffron and rosemary. And for kids of any age, bake a pizza monkey bread.

Every recipe has a photo you’ll want to sink your teeth into, and ATK-tested techniques plus step-by-step photos walk you through rolling out pie and galette doughs; shaping breads and rolls; stretching pizza dough; and more.
