Praise for Nancy Silverton’s Pastries From the La Brea Bakery
“Desserts by Nancy Silverton was my very first book of inspiration on the road to becoming a pastry chef. Now with Pastries from the La Brea Bakery Nancy continues to inspire me with her originality, passion and accessibility. She is an American treasure.”—Claudia Fleming, Pastry Chef, Gramercy Tavern
“I stood in the kitchen several times with Nancy and watched her bake. It was the thrill of a lifetime. Baking from her book is almost as good. I just made Nancy’s delicious bran muffins and I can’t resist them. They’re the greatest! (P.S. I added some walnuts.)”—Maida Heatter
Praise for Nancy Silverton’s Breads from the La Brea Bakery
“Nowhere is the American urge toward quality and freshness more apparent
than it is in bread making. And nowhere, in my experience, is the urge purer and more dedicated than in Nancy Silverton’s Breads from the La Brea Bakery.”—Richard Flaste, The New York Times Book Review
“Nancy Silverton has a personal aesthetic that I greatly admire.
It is revealed in all of her handmade rustic-looking loaves and the inspired choice of recipes in this book. She appeals to all the senses–not just the sense of taste.”—Alice Waters
