America's Test Kitchen Family Baking Book
I love baking bread.
Bread making is one of those things that seems interesting but I've never taken the time to learn. It would be great to see some new ways to do it.
Sorry Michael! I didn't realize we weren't supposed to put links in our signatures. I've been subscribing to your site for quite a while but finally registered to post for this promotion, and by reflex I made the link my signature in my profile.
No problem, don't worry about it at all.
As far as cookbook: I'd vote for the America's Test Kitchen Family Baking Book (since I've already got Artisan Bread; also a great book). Aside from being one of the very few ATK books not on my bookshelf (HUGE ATK fan), I could definitely stand to improve my baking skills. I was initially going to say "brush up on", but that seems to imply some a priori knowledge of the art, which I lack (despite the help of Baking Illustrated); I know just barely enough to be dangerous. I'd really like to shore up that culinary weak spot, and I'd wager that ATK would be just the thing to help me out.
