It s a great book about that southern staple food, homemade biscuits There was a time before womp biscuits the ones in the tube you womp on the counter to get out when homemade biscuits were served at every meal There are recipes for all types and well as great techniques and tips.This was intended to be a chapter in their brand new several hundred page tome, Mastering the Art of Southern Cooking but it grew to the point that it needed its own book.If you are a cookbook collector or just a fan of great food, add this to your library. Biscuit BibleFantastic recipes Will be trying about 50% of the recipes amd mixing my own flour Wish the book hadpictures of the different biscuits. This is a wonderfully comprehensive biscuit book Not everything I ve made has been awesome, but I did find my 1 go to biscuit recipe in this book Biscuit Supreme and I ve been searching for quite some time I don t expect to love every recipe in a book, so long as at least one is stellar, it is worth the purchase price. It s not very often that I purchase books, but this is a book that I want to own Great recipes for biscuits, scones, and other quick breads as well as for jams, preserves, gravies, and other biscuit accompaniments. This book helped me finally understand the difference between baking powder and baking soda As someone who bakes regularly, this should be something I already get But the thing is, I mostly just bake recipes other people share I m not good enough to be able to sort out my own I don t know the best ratios of liquid to dry ingredients, so I can t just sub things in and out.I really appreciated that the book has a generous introduction before diving into recipes The authors talk about the history of biscuits and how different flours in different parts of the U.S yield different feels to the biscuits They offer advice for storing and measuring flour and, as mentioned above, the different purposes baking powder and baking soda fulfill in a recipe They also dive into different types of fat to use butter is yummy, but you ll get a lighter biscuit if you use shortening or lard , and different options for liquid I m looking forward to using yogurt in one of the recipes.Finally, and most importantly, the authors take you through the actual preparation of the dough, and include two types of kneading and eight different ways to shape biscuits, depending on the consistency of the dough and the look you are going for They also discuss some common ways the home baker can totally screw the pooch It s helpful.They then dive into the recipes, broken out into easy biscuits, traditional biscuits, embellished biscuits I m so excited to try the black pepper ones , biscuit relatives cheese straws , tomorrow s biscuits i.e what to do with leftovers , and desserts They also include some recipes for things you want to eat WITH biscuits, like compound butter or chocolate gravy And they include a recipe for refrigerator biscuits so you can make dough ahead of time and just add liquid and bake up as you have time There are many I want to try out, which I think is a sign of a pretty good cookbook. Okay, I love this book in a lot of ways, but I felt it was both overly complete and incomplete.It has a zillion variants of the basic white flour baking powder or soda fat dairy biscuit, which is actually a good thing for those of us who want to fine tune our ideal classic biscuit It s totally repetitive, but I m not complaining.The biscuit related items also seem awesome Waffles Strawberry refrigerator jam Yes, please Where I think this failed is that it offered variety that departed from biscuit ness instead of offeringvariety within biscuit ness There aren t any recipes involving whole wheat flour which often requires different liquid proportions flours made from grains other than wheat potato other than the sweet potato pumpkin biscuits grits There are lots of biscuits that involve forms of starch other than white flour Some of those forms of starch are also very Southern, although if she s going to write about universals such as pancakes and waffles, die hard Southernness is obviously not a requirement I don t expect it to be all crunchy granola or to turn biscuits into health food or tackle gluten free baking, but it s very common to incorporate leftover grits, oatmeal, mashed potatoes, etc., that might otherwise go to waste, into bread recipes Why not into biscuits I checked it out from the library I m torn I need to keep it long enough to try the recipes and decide which I like best, but I m not sure I want to own it forever.
