Giveaway! Bakers Field Guide Books

CONTEST CLOSED. CONGRATS TO #76 @SPIFFYCOOKIE!

BFGFan3

The kind folks over at Harvard Common Press has donated a free set of the Baker's Filed Guide by Dede Wilson. Four books total including: bakers' field guide to chocolate chip cookies, baker's field guide to holiday candy & confections, baker's field guide to cupcakes (my favorite), and baker's field guide to christmas cookies. I was over the moon thrilled to do this giveaway as this are some of the best cookbooks I've come across in a while. Very detailed, very easy to follow and the size of the book is handy for in the kitchen--nothing big and bulky.


click me for details

Each book is set up in a unique, practical, and engaging “field guide” format that gives home bakers the lowdown on every little, delicious detail of each creation, making the baking process fun—like it should be!—for adults and kids alike. Whimsical creations come to life through each recipe’s breakdown, complemented by vibrant four-color photography that makes mouths water even before the first aromatic
whiff of fresh cookies seeps out through the oven door.
And nobody makes a better “field guide” than Dede Wilson, a contributing editor for Bon Appétit. She has written over a dozen baking books and continues to receive national recognition for her creations and baking innovations. Her baking prowess and her wit shine in these well-loved Baker’s Field Guides, now available for the first time in paperback (and at lower prices), making them more accessible and userfriendly
than ever before! All four guides—Cupcakes, Holiday Candy & Confections, Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Christmas Cookies—promise festive, fun treats for the whole family.
Dede Wilson has written over a dozen books, including Christmas Cooking for Dummies, Appetizers for Dummies, and The Wedding Cake Book. She is a contributing editor to Bon Appétit, for which she writes articles as well as makes frequent television appearances on NBC's TODAY and Dr. Oz, among other shows. She lives in Amherst, Massachusetts.

I'm partial to the cupcake cookbook. It has a huge variety of cupcakes as well as frostings. This one recipe is bookmarked.

Can you see all the tips they give for each recipe? I love that. Brilliant idea.

To win ALL four cookbooks, all you have to do is leave a comment here telling me which book you would open first. Which one is calling to you. Is it the cupcake, the chocolate chip, the holiday candy & confections, or the christmas cookie?
I will do the drawing on November 6, 2011.

MULTIPLE ENTRIES WILL GET VOTED OFF THE ISLAND.

  1. Definitely the chocolate chip! I am always on the search for the perfect chocolate chip cookie!

  2. Ack! Can I open them all at once?? I supposed I'd go with Holiday Candy and Confections...just to step out of my comfort zone. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I would head straight for the Christmas cookie book. I love to make cookies around the holidays and I am always looking for new ones.

  5. Christmas cookies!!!! I totally want to host another cookie exchange this year

    ReplyDelete
  6. I would probably open the christmas cookie book first. I spend almost the whole month of December last year making cookies and I loved every minute of it.

  7. Oooh cupcakes, I LOVE cupcakes!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Candy and confections first I think

    ReplyDelete
  9. Wow, I'm the first to comment!
    I guess either the Christmas Cookie book (since I'm already planning on what to make for Christmas) or the Chocolate chip because you can't go wrong with brown sugar, butter & chocolate :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. I would definitely head straight to the chocolate chip book - my life has been weirdly lacking in chocolate lately...

    ReplyDelete
  11. most likely the Holiday Candy one! trying to plan what to make for my kid's teachers for Christmas.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I just love to make Christmas cookies AND fudge. Which one will I open first. While I decide which of those to go with I will look at the cupcakes which are a favorite of my little adopted Grand-kids :^)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Tough decision, but I do believe I hear the Holiday Candy and Confections beckoning me :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I was going to say straight to the cupcakes! (because I have a weird obsession with them) but then I realized, in the spirit of expanding my repertoire - christmas cookie! (since I dont have a holiday themed book)

    Thanks for filling my life with your beautiful pictures and recipes! I'm heading home this weekend to make the cake filled pb cups for my brother's birthday :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Definitely cupcakes - love looking at different ways to decorate and present them. I am addicted to frosting cupcakes : ) It's too fun!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Probably the chocolate chip cookie guide, those are still my all time favorite cookie and I'm always trying different recipes to find the perfect one.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Christmas cookie because I can't help but be attracted to everything Christmas.

    ReplyDelete
  18. oOo the chocolate chip cookie guide would def have my heart!! they are my weakness and i love every kind :) the cupcake book definitely gets a close second though!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Candy and Confections. I make a huge assortment of homemade candies and chocolates to give out every year and I'm always looking for more recipes to add to my repertoire. It's fun to see people's reactions when you present them with a box of homemade chocolates, plus, it gives me an excuse to take it easy on the yoga and splurge on candy once a year.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I would love to get into the Holiday candies and confections.

    ReplyDelete
  21. The chocolate chip book definitely caught my eye- all of the bars and cookies on the cover just look so delicious! I would love to create some of my own from those recipes!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I would open the Christmas cookie book, we need some new recipes in this family!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. That's a hard call to make, but I would probably open the Holiday Candy and Confections book first to look for Christmas gift ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hmmm... tough one. Since Christmas is coming, and since I love to give homemade gifts to people, I'd probably go with the Holiday Candy and Confections for new and fun ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Cupcakes! I love them and love decorating them!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Chocolate chip cookie. DONE.

    Please pick me?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I would open the xmas cookie book because it's that time of year, but I would probably give the set to my daughter who has just discovered baking while away at college and I want to encourage her.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Me want cookies...me read chocolate chip cookies book first!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh goodness, what a decision! I'm torn between the cupcake one and the Christmas cookie one. I guess the Christmas cookie book has a slight edge with the holidays creeping up on us! What a great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  30. This is a toughy with so many delights to choose from. I would probably go with cookie one. It's the one time out of the year that my family is all together. I lost my father 2 years ago to cancer and my brother is in Iraq. Christmas has been slow but I think if I spoil everyone with a little Christmas cheer to bring their spirits bright then it would make everyone easier to cope with the holiday while our loved ones are gone. My brother hopefully will be home in time for Christmas but if not I would have to say I would make cookies and other sweets to send to the soldiers deployed. Our family is having a hard time this year and I think that if I bring Christmas Cheer this year for everyone to have a little piece of heaven, it will make everyone smile. Our family right now facing the hard times the Christmas Cookies will be memories of happier times when we were all together. I know too that my niece, nephews and my children are now all old enough to help me in the kitchen. It will help them to smile since Grandpa is in Heaven and my nephew's father is in Iraq. It's been hard for him not seeing his dad. I feel like I am the mother hen to all the kids to distract them from all the family hardships. I know that these books, recipes especially those for Christmas will help them to cope. We have baked together before but I think something new and some new ideas will be very fun! Thank you for doing this giveaway, and if I win, I will definitely appreciate it and share with everyone each and every experience.

    Warmest Regards,
    Annamaria

    ReplyDelete
  46. They all look good, but I would have to say i would open the candy and confections cookbook first. I have made the matza crack and i have also made buttercrunch candy....but....i would really love to try making my ultimate favorite candy....the peppermint patty with dark chocolate....i need to master the art of dipping the patty into the chocolate.

    ReplyDelete

    It won't let me login with google so my e-mail is judithavory at gmail dot com.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Definitely the Christmas Cookie book. Our newspaper puts together driving routes to see the best Christmas lights. Readers send money (not really bids) to drive around with the columnist who does the routes, with the money going to a local food bank. The people winning the drives also get a pound and a half of my Christmas cookies. Maybe I'd also add some Holiday Candy and Confections.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  64. Holiday candy! Make for great gifts :)

    ReplyDelete
  70. Cupcakes! That's my nickname cause I use to always bake them for softball games as the 'team mom.' Granted, the players were middle aged coworkers....

    ReplyDelete
  71. The Holiday Candy and confection. This would be perfect with the holidays coming up.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Christmas cookie - we had so much fun last year decorating with royal icing that I'd love to expand my repertoire!

    Confections would win out - unless I needed some Chocolate chip cookies in the meantime to keep my strength up!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I would open the chocolate chip cookie book first, but mostly because it's on top. Honestly, I'd pour through all of them from cover to cover with my post it flags. But chocolate chip cookies are pretty dang awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I think I'd look at the Christmas book first, in the hopes of finding something with a German background, to remind me of the ones I tried to make while living overseas and had to use metric measurements. (Ugh! I want the recipes in cups and teaspoons!)
    Thanks for the giveaway!!!!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  94. I'm thinking Christmas Cookies, since it's the holiday season, but the Chocolate Chip one might get me since I have a strange inability to make chocolate chip cookies!

    ReplyDelete
  95. I would reach for the chocolate chip! They have endless potential in baking and I can snack on them all the while!

    ReplyDelete
  96. On a normal day, CUPCAKES... but because the holiday season is upon us...Christmas Cookies.

  122. the chocolate chip. i think chocolate chip cookies are all about the senses, i love to hear the reactions of my friends when they step into my home and can smell the chocolate chip cookie and I love watching their faces and demeanor change when they experience that first bite into a warm cookie. a chocolate chip cookie is more than a cookie, it's always associated with memory and it has a way of bringing you back to a place, time and person.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Cupcake. Because cupcakes are like little individual servings of happiness, and I can never make enough.

    ReplyDelete
  156. I would go straight to Christmas Cookies, here is why.... My Mom loved to bake and Christmas was the time when she came alive in the kitchen, it was a pure self expression and it was how I learned. She has been gone for 8 years now and every Christmas, when I break out the Vanilla and Butter, she lives through me in the kitchen... SO I would open the Christmas book for sure!!!! Thanks for the opportunity to win the books..... Cheryl

  172. I would have to say the Christmas cookie book. My son and I have been setting up "Cookie Central" every year at Christmas as far back as I can remeber. Last year I was in Iraq and this year he will be turning 14... not sure how much longer he will be interested in hanging out with mom baking and decorating Christmas cookies :(

  173. I would easily open the cupcake one first. Cupcakes are so versatile! They can be so many different flavors with so many different kinds of toppings, and they're super easy to decorate so they can always look amazing!
