Thomas Keller and Sebastien Rouxel have produced a beautiful cookbook that has only one flaw….you need a forklift to get it home. I recently toted this massive mega-cookbook home and delighted in it all weekend. My inspiration led to a batch of outstanding oatmeal-raisin cookies, easily the easiest of all the recipes to produce. If you enjoy baking or just enjoy perusing photos of baked goods, Bouchon Bakery is definitely the cookbook for you. I am so impressed by the beautiful photographs and easy to understand directions for baking just about any loaf of bread or pastry you have ever drooled over. He uses weight measurements that may not be the easiest to adapt, but if you are not quite as precise the rest of the instructions are doable. HINT: He adds 2 tablespoons of cinnamon to his oatmeal-raisin cookies, YUM!
