This hard cover cookbook measures just over 8 inches wide by about 10 3/4 inches tall.
The best of the best: 350 recipes from the million-dollar cooking contest, including the winner. Also features sidebars full of personal anecdotes about the contestants, cooking tips, and fascinating items of Bake-Off history.
For almost fifty years, people have looked to one cooking contest for the most delicious, the most exciting and the most uniquely American recipes this country's home cooks have to offer. The Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest presents the very best of what people are cooking today for their family and friends - for everyday dinners, special occasion desserts and mouthwatering breads.
Now, for the very first time, more than 350 of the most sought after prize-winning recipes from this famed cooking contest are gathered in one book, complete with gorgeous color photographs and stories about the people and the inspiration that led to their award-winning recipes. Best of the Bake-Off Cookbook is a sweet and savory record of how American cooking has evolved over the years, illustrating how home cooks have captured their ethnic heritages in dishes adapted from their grandparents' countries to modern kitchens and busier times.
The stories are as inspiring as the recipes themselves, from 1955 winner Rosemary Sport's prize - a new pink range - which provided her family with the motivation to become proud new homeowners to 1996's Grand Prize-winner, Kurt Wait, a single parent, who with the help of his son developed his $1,000,000-winning recipe Macadamia Fudge Torte.
Hundreds of the very best recipes are accompanied by enticing color photographs and organized by category: Soups, Sandwiches and Snacks; Main Dishes; Side Dishes and Salads; Breads; Sweet Rolls and Coffee Cakes; Cookies and Bars; Cakes and Tortes; Pies and Tarts; and Other Desserts.
Each chapter is filled with personal profiles highlighting the people who created the recipes plus the wonderful and oftentimes humorous behind-the-scenes stories from the Bake-Off Contest events: One contestant accidentally sat on her cake entry; another was notified that she was a lucky contestant via a citizens-band message broadcast by her town's postmistress.
The Pillsbury Bake-Off® Contests began the tradition of bringing great dishes to the American table. Nearly fifty years, thirty-seven contests, and thousands of recipes later, the Bake-Off® Contest has grown to become the most beloved and anticipated cooking contest in the world.
