Books by bakers? in Food Media & Arts Posted February 21, 2010 · Edited February 21, 2010 by jumanggy (log) Hi Blurby, here is a list of pretty much all the US books about the experience of pastry chefs. Take note that I haven't really read any of these (some browsed).1. Baking Boot Camp: Five Days of Basic Training at The Culinary Institute of America2. The Making of a Pastry Chef: Recipes and Inspiration from America's Best Pastry Chefs3. Spiced: A Pastry Chef's True Stories of Trials by Fire, After-Hours Exploits, and What Really Goes on in the Kitchen4. Career Diary of a Pastry Chef: Gardner's Guide Series5. Ace of Cakes: Inside the World of Charm City Cakes (eh...)6. Confections of a Closet Master Baker: One Woman's Sweet Journey from Unhappy Hollywood Executive to Contented Country BakerAs you can see, there's not a whole lot, but they are out there!
