Baking Style is both a how-to resource book on the craft of baking and a literary journal of baking recipes.

A tour through the contents of Baking Style reveals a rich assortment of recipes that display the author's creativity and good taste in a diary-styled format, inviting the reader to take in the art of baking as the delicious, creative hobby that it is.

A hallmark of Baking Style is Lisa's essays that take a magnifying-glass look into how a particular recipe came to be in her hands, framing the recipes that accompany. A comprehensive baker's guide to ingredients, technique, and equipment rounds out this full-length book, making it a perfect addition to the kitchen library of both beginning and seasoned cooks alike. In addition to detailed information for learning the special techniques of the baking process and recipes that glow with perfectly created flavors and textures, Baking Style is infused with discoveries, inspirations, and exacting but simple confections for capturing the art of baking at home.
