Baking is a form of alchemy, the art of turning mundane everyday ingredients into something extraordinary. Alison Thompson has studied at the sides of some of the world's greatest pastry chefs for years, learning the art and science of baking. In this book, Alison shares the creations that continue to delight her clientèle and her family. There's a recipe here for every occasion and every part of your meal: dinner, side dishes and, of course, dessert! With more than 200 mouthwatering recipes including her all-time favorite breads, cakes and cookies, Alison also presents dozens of unique pastry recipes that you normally only find in a specialty pastry shop.
