How to Cook Well : Baking

This edition looks at baking – cooking in the dry heat of the oven. Raymond Blanc starts with scallops baked in their own shells and then makes a salt-baked leg of lamb.


He ends with two desserts. The first is a restaurant masterpiece – a pistachio souffle with a bitter cocoa sorbet inside – and is followed by a flourless chocolate cake.
