For years I've wanted to take classes at the King Arthur Baking School. Now, all I've got to do is walk into my kitchen: everything that the school teaches so famously well is in this remarkable book. Each recipe builds on what you've learned, each chapter takes you a little further, each Master Class ensures that you've got the skills. It's brilliant...delicious fun.

The regal grain brand is back with another resource for flour fans in this thorough guide to the hows, whys, science, and art of baking. Commonly asked questions, such as how to tell when a sourdough starter is “ripe,” and pro tip callouts simulate the classroom experience of the baking classes King Arthur offers (and which are attended by 10,000 bakers annually), with pointers such as using weight over volume in measurements, adding eggs one at a time to a batter (for better emulsification), or including a touch of cake flour in a puff pastry recipe (for enhanced moisture absorption)....This is a compendium that bakers who want to get better and better will refer to over and over.

King Arthur has a new book, Baking School, coming out in October, and it truly is the most gorgeous, distinctive, and most educational baking book I’ve seen in a long, long time. I just made the blueberry muffins from the book and I will never use any other recipe going forward.
