Praise for The Everyday Baker:
Everyday? Hardly! How about every minute? That's how often we want to make the recipes from this baking pro who still makes it all too fun. We're as undone by her mini pancetta quiche as we are by her double chocolate espresso wake-up bread. And if you've ever wanted to make English muffins, Abby makes it easy and maybe an everyday necessity. Just wow.
Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough, Authors of The Great Big Pressure Cooker Book
Abby Dodge is the best baking teacher I know, bar none. To see her amazing techniques and genius flavor pairings come to life in this soon-to-be classic resource is pure joy. With hundreds of helpful step-by-step photos and so many 'extras' from flavor swaps and make-ahead tips to finishing touches—The Everyday Baker is a hugely generous cookbook, the kind that invites you to drop everything you are doing and start baking this very minute. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if The Everyday Baker inspires cooks across the country to bake their way through it, one delicious recipe at a time.
Susie Middleton, cookbook author, farmer, and editor at large for Fine Cooking
The Everyday Baker is part culinary school, part trusted friend, and completely delicious. Abby shares her years of baking wisdom with such grace and ease that everyone from pastry chefs to first time bakers will successfully create fabulous pastries.
