Baking and Pastry is one of the book that I read along side Professional Baking. Like Professional Baking, I read this for my culinary classes and it does help me understand some of the content that was included into my lectures. Similar to the other book, the textbook is appropriate for those who seek additional knowledge in the culinary arts. For beginners in culinary arts, this book provided a variety of subjects that might help in understanding the works that involved in baking. There are also additional chapters on confectioneries and cake decorating

However, being a chef is more than just reading from a book. You need to practice with the basics and any culinary text book is not enough for the work needed in the kitchen. ( )
