Get Your Bake On: Sweet and Savory Recipes from My Home to Yours by Brian Emmett


Cook up some delicious, down-home goodness with this cookbook of more than seventy-five sweet and savory recipes from Brian Emmett, grand prize winner of CBS’s The American Baking Competition.

In 2013, Brian Emmett burst onto the culinary scene with his charm, confidence, and superior baking and cooking skills on season one of The American Baking Competition. He won over the hearts of Americans nationwide, who watched this enthusiastic husband and father immerse himself in his passion—and, ultimately, take home the illustrious title of “Top Amateur Baker.”

Now, in Get Your Bake On, Brian shares over seventy-five recipes that leave no doubt as to why he was crowned champion on the show. This cookbook encompasses a hearty mixture of The American Baking Competition favorites, brand-new concoctions, and Emmett family recipes passed down through generations. Staying true to the show’s theme, there are plenty of sweets: From miniature tarts to his famous Cakey Chocolate Chip Cookie, Brian’s baked goods are sure to satisfy even the most demanding of sweet tooths. But Get Your Bake On also features a strong savory element with classic, feel-good recipes such as Sunday Brunch Strada and Beef Chili with Buttermilk Cornbread.

A great baking book with 'a few words of wisdom before you start.' The Introduction contains info on baking tools, preparing your baking pans, and charts on measuring and weighing to help you out. Chapters contain all the recipes you'd expect from a basic baking book: Pies and Tarts; Scones, Muffins, and Biscuits; Breads and Pizzas; Cookies, Bars, Biscotti, and Brownies; Cakes; Pastry and Pie Dough; and Souffles and Custards. The souffle and custard chapter was my favorite and included both sweet and savory recipes (Sky-High Cheese and Chive Souffles, etc.).
