Dorie Greenspan has written recipes for the most eminent chefs in the world: Pierre Herme, Daniel Boulud, and arguably the greatest of them all, Julia Child, who once told Dorie, ''You write recipes just the way I do.''

The generous helpings of background information, abundant stories, and hundreds of professional hints set Baking apart as a one-of-a-kind cookbook.
