Top food stylist and Food52’s popular baking columnist shares her baking secrets. When people see Erin McDowell frost a perfect layer cake, weave a lattice pie crust, or pull a rich loaf of brioche from the oven, they often act as though she’s performed culinary magic. “I’m not a baker,” they tell her. But in fact, expert baking is not at all unattainable, nor is it as inflexible as most people assume. The key to freedom is to understand the principles behind how ingredients interact and how classic methods work. Once these concepts are mastered, favorite recipes can be altered and personalized almost endlessly. With the assurance born out of years of experience, McDowell shares insider tips and techniques that make desserts taste as good as they look. With recipes from flourless cocoa cookies and strawberry-filled popovers (easy), through apple cider pie and black-bottom crème brûlée (medium), to a statuesque layer cake crowned with caramelized popcorn (difficult), and “Why It Works,” “Pro Tip,” and make-ahead sidebars with each recipe, this exciting, carefully curated collection will appeal to beginning and experienced bakers alike.

Michele Evans knows there is nothing so satisfying to a hostess as a happy, well-fed crowd. She also knows that even the most confident cook might easily be intimidated by the idea of cooking for more than a handful of guests. The thought of a buffet dinner for sixteen can bring visions of pots bubbling out of control or a menu of tired standbys such as roast beef and three-bean salad. With Fearless Cooking for Crowds, all that is changed. Evans has created more than three hundred foolproof recipes specially developed for entertaining groups of eight to fifty. Whether you are planning a formal dinner for eight or a buffet brunch for fifty, you will find delicious, unusual, uncomplicated recipes for every course from hors d’oeuvres to quick and easy desserts. Michele Evans believes that cooking for fifty is not ten times more difficult than cooking for five. The secret is organization, organization, organization—from invitations and menu planning to working with large quantities of food. You will never again feel frantic trying to multiply your favorite dish for six for a crowd of 24. Evans has designed perfect recipes for groups of 8, 12, 16, 24, 36, and 50. There are accompanying charts on cooking large amounts of pasta and rice and detailed instructions for assembling a recipe for a large crowd, a seemingly daunting chore. Evans also never forgets that beautiful, delicious cooking for crowds need not be expensive. The luscious recipes for casual or elegant meals, include: Indonesian Pork and Pineapple Ragout with Peanut Sauce for 8; Boneless Breast Coq au Vin for 12; Mixed Berry Crepes with Cassis Sauce for 12; Potato Salad with Fresh Pesto Dressing for 16; Brussels Sprouts with Red Pepper Butter for 24; Grilled Chicken and Vegetables Kebabs for 36; Ricotta, Mushroom, and Sun-Dried Tomato Strudel for 50. Fearless Cooking for Crowds acknowledges America’s growing appreciation for large-scale entertaining, and with every recipe shows how exciting, original, and delicious cooking for crowds can be.
