Hand Made Baking: Recipes to Warm the Heart

Kamran Siddiqi. Chronicle Books, $29.95 (210p) ISBN 978-1-4521-1230-5
Don't let the title fool you, this isn't your grandmother's sentimental collection of old-timey recipes. Authored by Kamran Siddiqi, a 22-year-old full-time student, who explains in the introduction that "baking is my peace," gives readers 55 recipes including unique selections such as Nancy Drew Blondies, Guava and Cheese Puffs, and Penn Station Cinnamon-Sugar Pretzels. Traditionalists need not fear: basics include Foolproof Pie Dough and Easy-Peasy Brioche, as well as classic desserts including Flourless Chocolate Cake and Yellow Birthday Cake. First-person experiences in head notes permeate the title with the author's highly likeable and informative voice, and the full-page color photography and contemporary design make it a pleasure to read and spend time with the pages. An unpretentious, cheery collection designed to "convert fear-filled nonbakers to experts." Color photos. (Nov.)
