This book is a classic. While I've yet to visit a professional bakery that doesn't have a well-worn and flour-covered copy of King Arthur's All-Purpose Baker's Companion sitting in hand's reach, this is also an essential book for home bakers who want access to tried and true recipes and quick references on process and method across a wide variety of baking applications. This makes a great gift for beginning bakers as well.
