From the signature Parisian baguettes to the sentimental ode to Keller’s mother’s pecan sandies, there’s a recipe for everyone, as well as tips and tricks like weighing eggs and freezing cake to enrich its flavor. (Who knew?) If words like “rum-soaked raisins” don’t make your mouth water, the stunning images of the end results surely will. The secret to mastering Keller’s creations? Kneading between the lines, of course. bouchonbakery.com/book.
