Recipes for the Connoisseur
Silverton, who hails from the renowned Los Angeles bakery for which this book is named, goes back to square one in Breads for the La Brea Bakery: the yeast. While commercial yeast may work, using it doesn't really get to the essence of good bread or good bread making. Her book describes the two-week process required to create a starter the old-fashioned way. Once that is done, there are breads, pretzels, bagels and a host of other good things to bake.

Sift, Knead, Flute, Flour and Savor the Joys of Baking with America's Best...
Television cooking shows are occasionally moderately entertaining to watch, but as sources for usable recipes and good cooking ideas, they are hit or miss at best. Cookbooks based on cooking show are even less likely to be useful in the kitchen. One shining exception is Julia Child's "Master Chef" series. One of the best cooking shows ever produced, it also yielded some wonderful cookbooks, including Cooking With Master Chefs.
The latest is Baking With Julia, which features the creations of 26 of top bakers. All are artists with flour, eggs, butter and the other ingredients of their craft, and writer Dorie Greenspan is a master at her craft as well. The paste for eclairs, she writes, is transformed from "ordinary-looking batter" into a puffed pastry that appears to be threatening flight. It's all definitely good enough to eat.
