This is an incredible book. Bought the first one after my cooking classes ( it was the one the bakers were using). Then bought another one for a friend of mine and he is reading it cover to cover!!! Really learning a lot about cooking, and how much percentages are simplifying things! I recommend this book to anyone who is serious about learning to bake. A must for making life easier in the kitchen. Baking for two or two hundred...very easy! 5 stars
