The Grand Central Baking Book


From the publisher

Northwest natives flock to their favorite Grand Central Bakery for gooey whole-wheat cinnamon rolls with a strong cup of coffee, satisfying savory tarts filled with seasonal vegetables, or fabulous fresh fruit pies filled with local fruit picked at its peak. Now, in The Grand Central Baking Book, recipes for Grand Central’s much-loved baked goods are available to home bakers for the first time, accompanied by easy-to-follow pointers on baking for breakfast and brunch, cookies, fruit desserts, cakes, pies, and more.

Grand Central Bakery has been serving handmade pastries and seasonal soups, salads, and sandwiches to a loyal following for more than 35 years. The same passion for fresh, local, and delicious ingredients that prompted the bakery’s founder, Gwenyth Bassetti, to lead the artisanal bread revolution in the Pacific Northwest continues to inspire her daughter, Piper Davis, the cuisine manager for the bakery’s eight locations in Portland and Seattle, and co-author, with Ellen Jackson, of The Grand Central Baking Book.
