Have you ever been in a specialty bakery and been overwhelmed by the beautiful breads there? Most of us have had that experience, and most of us have known that we couldn’t really duplicate those beautiful baked goods at home. For anyone interested in learning to bake and decorate breads, Theresa Culletto will show you how, with step-by-step instructions in her cookbook, Beautiful Bread: Create & Bake Artful Masterpieces for Any Occasion.

The first chapter covers the essentials: ingredients, tools, and tips. The cookbook also includes the recipe for Focaccia with variations. These recipes are presented in the traditional manner with comments at the beginning, followed by a list of ingredients, then step-by-step instructions, making it possible for almost any baker – from beginning to advanced – to successfully make this bread. Subsequent chapters cover the artful loaves using flowers, herbs, and other ingredients to make spectacular bread. The instructions are concise but thorough for each recipe.

One of the best things about this cookbook is that there are beautiful, professional photographs of every artistic loaf making it possible for anyone to duplicate then at home. The designs are innovative and imaginative, and will definitely inspire.

All told, this is a cookbook for those who like to spend lots of time in the kitchen and enjoy creating edible works of art. It is well-written and fun to read and bake from.
