Sugar Rush: Master Tips, Techniques, and Recipes for Sweet Baking by Authors JOHNNY IUZZINI, Wes Martin , and Introduction Dorie Greenspan

Sugar Rush is a beautiful hardback book, that is a perfect example of what all authors should produce. For a new baker this book is a great place to start. The author has done a great job of giving us the fundamentals of baking.

This book is broken down into 9 sections.
1. Custards and Creamy Desserts
2. Eggs and Meringue
3. Caramel
4. Cakes, Cupcakes, Brownies, and Muffins
5. Cookies, Tea Cakes and Biscuits
6. Tarts, Cobblers, and Crisps
7. Yeast Doughs
8. Glazes, Frostings, Fillings, and Sauces
9. Building a Balanced Dessert

There are a lot of things to love about this book. From the foundation recipes to the great step by step photographs. I really think it would be tough to not be able to learn from this book. I can’t wait to try out the recipes in the book. Macaroons, biscuits, brioche dough, puff pastry, and vanilla cream are just a few of the recipes that I can’t wait to try.

This book will definetely be a book that I give out in the future to new bakers and cooks.
