A comprehensive and reliable approach to the foundations of baking, ideal for students and early-career professionals In the newly revised Eighth Edition to Professional Baking, best-selling author, Wayne Gisslen, delivers a comprehensive and accessible introduction to baking practices, including the selection of ingredients and proper mixing and baking techniques. The book discusses makeup and assembly, as well as skilled and imaginative decoration and presentation, in a straightforward and learner-friendly style. Each recipe and formula still includes US and metric measurements. The metric measurements have been updated and revised based on the baker’s percentages of each ingredient; the strong technique instruction of the formulas and recipes remain unchanged from previous editions. The clear narrative is accompanied by links to technique videos, glossaries and audio pronunciations, math tutorials, and quizzes to assist the student and professional baker in the development of both foundational and more advanced skills.
