Cooking teacher and author of "The New Fanny Farmer Cookbook" Marion Cunningham shows chef Julia Child how to make a series of easy and delicious quickbreads, an American bakery staple. She makes moist buttermilk crumb muffins from a hundred year-old recipe that are good enough to eat on their own. Then she bakes scones, half done in the traditional shape, half made in a roll-up style, served with butter, whipped cream and raspberries. Finally, she creates unbelievably easy-to-make Irish soda... [see more] bread, and fluffy popovers served with a drizzling of honey.
BAKING WITH JULIA presents the delicious details for making foods that Americans crave and that home bakers want to create: loaves of hearty whole-wheat bread, focaccia rich with olive oil and herbs, high-domed breakfast muffins, daintily decorated petits fours, feather-light meringues, and a variety of cookies and cakes. Together with the country's most outstanding pastry chefs and bakers, teachers, and cookbook authors, Julia Child shares indispensable techniques, time-honored tips, and meticulously tested recipes that make home baking successful and satisfying.
