Anyone who loves to bake will want to immediately pick up a copy Bake Class Step by Step: Recipes for Sweet and Savory Breads, Cakes, Cookies and Desserts. The book is written by celebrated Australian author, Anneka Manning, who has written several cookbooks, and has been featured on television and taught baking classes for years.

Each chapter begins with step-by-step instructions and photographs on different baking methods (such as The folding In method, The Measure and Mix method, The Rubbing In method, The Creaming Method, and others) and is followed by recipes using those methods.

The author has headed each recipe with comments and helpful hints, which are followed by a list of ingredients, then easy-to-follow instructions. The recipes can be easily followed by beginning bakers, as well as those with a bit more experience. The cookbook includes dozens of mouthwatering recipes for both sweet and savory baked goods, that turn out picture perfect.

Most (unfortunately not all) of the recipes are accompanied by beautiful, professional photographs, which make this cookbook very appealing. The variety of recipes have a definite Australian influence, and there are enough fabulous recipes to keep bakers busy for months. Manning knows her stuff, and knows how to present it in a way that everyone will be able to learn from her expertise.

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