About Get Started: Baking
Enroll in your own private culinary course with Get Started: Baking, part of a new series of structured learning guides from DK where nothing is assumed and everything is explained. Each course follows the same structure: start simple and learn the basics, build on what you've learned, and then show off your new skills!
Get Started: Baking teaches complete beginners the skills needed to bake over 65 delicious recipes. Start simple with easy-mix cookies and quick breads, build upon your skills with layered cakes and quiches, and then show off with roulades and macarons.
With step-by-step pictures and practice recipes to keep you on the right track, Get Started: Baking will help you learn your new skill in no time.
More than any other series on the market, DK's Get Started aims to provide the reader with carefully structured learning and a classroom approach to teaching that allows you to build your own course from practical lessons and themed projects.
Each book begins by answering fundamental questions, identifying an essential starter kit of tools and equipment, and explaining how to build a course. The book then divides into subject areas, with key techniques for each area demonstrated through visual glossaries and step-by-steps, followed by graded projects with annotated instructions and an assessment of how to build on achievements.
Let DK be the perfect one-on-one tutor you never had: patient, illuminating, inspiring - always at hand to point you in the right direction so you can achieve your potential.
