I’m Just Here for More Food: Food x Mixing + Heat = Baking
The third book from Food Network star Alton Brown includes dozens of recipes as a step-by-step guide for bakers to create sweet and savory dishes, but it also explains the science behind baking. Its introductory Parts section talks about the chemical breakdown of proteins, carbs, and fats, and explains how certain ingredients behave, why they relate to each other the way they do, and how to beat eggs so they’ll stop bullying other ingredients. Scattered throughout the book are guides on measuring, reading recipes, and the five steps of baking. Brown believes that for bakers, “mixing is more important than ingredients and even cooking method,” so the heart of the book is divided by six mixing methods—muffin, biscuit, creaming, straight dough, egg foam, and custards.
