This straightforward, intelligent collection of recipes for sweet and savory baked goods draws on Ashkenazic, Sephardic, and Mizrahi traditions.
Beth Lee, a California baker and blogger provides pithy introductions and detailed recipes for the likes of challahs and babkas, bialys and borekas, malawachs and mandelbrot.
Truly serious bakers will be pleased to see that she provides weights as well as volume measurements. Recipes are also labelled to make it easy to find those which are pareve, nut-free, or vegan. There are also estimates of the amount of time you'll need for preparation, inactive time (as for raising or resting), and cooking.
