Genoise Cake with Raspberry and Cream from Illustrated Step-by-Step Baking by Caroline Bretherton.

What’s the difference between beating and folding? What should “soft peaks” look like? How do you line a pastry crust? When it comes to baking, knowing what an instruction means can be the difference between a showstopper and a soggy bottom. That’s where Illustrated Step-by-Step Baking comes in.

Each of the 80 classic recipes in this essential collection is fully illustrated, with photographs of every stage of the baking process. See what other baking books only tell you: how to knead the dough, rub together butter and flour, and create a pastry lattice to top a pie or tart.
