Fantastical Cakes

Gesine Bullock-Prado
Authors:
Gesine Bullock-Prado

Baking and decorating a cake can be a challenge, and when the end result doesn't taste as good as it looks, a big disappointment! Author and seasoned baker Gesine Bullock-Prado has perfected a method for creating eye-catching spectacular cakes that measure up. Her step-by-step instruction for baking, piping, and making decorations make each bit manageable, whether it's baking layers ahead of time and freezing, or taking the time to crank out a slew of gorgeous frosting flowers that hold beautifully in the freezer until you need them. Her aim is to present a 'system' for cake decorating that carries you through from baking to finishing, no step skipped or left unexplained. Just remember BaDASS: Bake ahead, Dam, Assemble, Smooth coat, and Spruce it up. The layers are as easy as box mixes, and the smoothing and decorating instructions work the first time (not a thousand passes later). From custom shapes to complement a party theme to ultra-gorgeous cakes for special occasions, it's all within reach.

The Del Posto Cookbook

Mark Ladner
Authors:
Mark Ladner

Mark Ladner, the Chef at Del Posto, redefines what excellent Italian Cooking in America can be. With a focus on regional Italian ingredients and tradition, Ladner has chosen recipes that bring together flavors from the old country, but in sophisticated new ways, like: Fried Calamari with Spicy Caper Butter Sauce; Red Wine Risotto with Carrot Puree, Monkfish Piccata, Veal Braciole, and Ricotta-Chocolate Tortino. But what is special is that these recipes will really work in the home kitchen, unlike some ambitious cookbooks like this. And given Del Posto's origin and founders, the book includes recipes by Lidia Bastianich, and forewords by Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich. Plus, the award-winning sommelier at Del Posto offers advice on which Italian varietals to serve with what dishes. All this is complemented by photography that is inspired by 16th century still life paintings.As the New York Times said in their review: "The food bewilders and thrills."
