Glassman and Postal of the Zen Community of New York's Greyston Bakery, a supplier to Godiva, the Russian Tea Room and Bloomingdale's, take on the home kitchen with panache in these fine adaptations of specialty recipes. The generous offerings range from wholesome country favorites (honey-sweetened whole-wheat muffins, deep-dish apple pie, seven-grain bread) to European regional pastries (rugelah variations, raspberry linzer tarts) and hedonic chocolate fantasies (mocha Kahlua brownies, Winter Damask cake made with white-chocolate rum mousse, Grand Duchess cake soaked in Grand Marnier, glazed in bittersweet chocolate and studded with filberts). Lucid, detailed instructions accompany an engaging, informative text; tips for preparing pastry and bread dough are invaluable; and artistic bakers will welcome ideas for elegant finishings and holiday decorations. Illustrations not seen by PW. 30,000 first printing; $25,000 ad/promo; author tour.(November 3)
