Anyone who hasn’t been to an Asian bakery has really missed out. The baked goods are unique, and always fresh and delicious. If you don’t have access to a good Asian bakery, you can actually duplicate these baked goods at home. Kristina Cho ‘s excellent cookbook, Mooncakes and Milk Bread: Sweet and Savory Recipes Inspired by Chinese Bakeries shows how in step-by-step instructions that are easy to follow.

Although the recipes are the main attraction in this cookbook, Cho has included information that is very helpful to all who aren’t familiar with Asian baking such as “How to Shop at an Asian Grocery Store,” as well as essential equipment. She also showcases several excellent Chinese bakeries in the US.

I love this cookbook! I have visited Asian grocery stores in Japan and China, as well as Hawaii and locations in the mainland US with large Asian populations. The baked goods are mouthwatering and I’ve tried to duplicate them, mostly without much success. Now, with this cookbook I have been able to bake some of my favorites. I must admit that I have even adapted some of the recipes to make the dough in the automatic bread machine to save time and have had perfect results.

There are enough appealing recipes to keep readers baking for months. Every time I peruse this cookbook, my baking queue gets longer. The cookbook inspires me to stay home and bake, and it will inspire readers to do the same. This cookbook is highly recommended.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
