James Beard Award for Baking 2009. Shirley Corriher, presents BakeWise--an accessible compendium that combines cooking know-how with the simply explained science behind successful baking.

It has been more than a decade since Shirley Corriher's CookWise became a must-have book for home cooks and professional cooks alike. Now, she delivers the book for which her fans have long been clamoring! This is a masterpiece that continues to showcase her unique ability to combine food science with practical technique so that anyone can bake their way to bliss--with moist cakes, free-standing souffles, the flakiest pastries, perfect breads, and just about anything else that comes out of the oven.

Blending her trademark down-to-earth charm with her solid science background, Shirley skillfully demonstrates gifted teacher as well as food scientist, Corriher takes readers through the hows and whys of everything she bakes, tackling common problems and explaining their origins and how to fix them (for example, an unclean bowl can cause egg whites to whip up poorly and ruin the texture of a cake). With 250 flavorful and foolproof recipes, BakeWise will be an essential addition to every cook's kitchen.
