Cook’s Illustrated Baking Cookbook Giveaway!

If you are a baker, at any level of expertise…

If you are an aspiring baker… you need this cookbook.

Cook's Illustrated Baking Book Giveaway-2

Cook’s Illustrated takes the guessing game out of the whys and why nots in recipes. They’ll tell you why you’re using this type of flour, what X amount of sugar will do to your cake, why 1 egg yolk is better than 1 egg, etc etc.

There’s a reason Cook’s Illustrated is hailed as the “Food Geek’s Bible.” A baking science junkie like myself couldn’t WAIT to get my hands on this cookbook!
