Lessons and Recipes for Every Baker

Pre-order now

For the first time ever, the country’s best baking school shares its 100 best recipes and essential techniques.

The instructors at King Arthur’s Baking School have decades of baking knowledge and expertise between them. And now they’re sharing that knowledge in a comprehensive, full-color cookbook.

Divided by baking categories and organized like a class curriculum, this essential cookbook dives deep into all things baking. Lessons range from essential skills to inspiring techniques, with revealing tips shared along the way. Not sure the difference between Swiss and Italian buttercream? Looking for the best way to make a flaky pie crust? Want to learn all about bread, from pan loaves to sourdough? Our instructors have you covered.

Just as we do in our classes, Baking School teaches not only the “how” but also the “why” behind techniques and recipes. With this book in hand, you’ll gain the same knowledge and insight as our in-person and virtual classes, empowering you to adapt recipes, troubleshoot problems, and be more confident in the kitchen. Welcome to class – Baking School is officially in session.
