Over thousands of years, baking has evolved from the most basic, two-ingredient recipes (if you can even call them that) into elaborate works of art that push the boundaries of chemistry and creativity.

In the Best of the Bakery Project, you’ll learn to bake breads, cookies, pies and more as you work on your skills in this culinary art!

In this project, you’ll learn:

  • How to follow a recipe and measure ingredients accurately
  • The basic principles of baking, like kneading, rising and temperature control
  • How to substitute ingredients based on your preferences
  • Dozens of delicious recipes you can perfect and experiment with
