A celebration of real baking in all its messy, boisterous, and delicious glory

Since when did every cookie on the plate have to be just like the next? Or each layer of cake exactly the same height? Each piecrust an impeccable work of art and encircled by stunningly perfect pastry leaves? To the uninitiated, all that fastidious, spotless baking is intimidating, not to mention exhausting. The Messy Baker celebrates baking as it happens in the real world—sweet, messy, fun, not always gorgeous, but a way to show love. Which doesn't make it any less delicious; to the contrary, Charmian's flavor combinations rise far above the ordinary. Why have a raspberry galette when you can enjoy a raspberry-rhubarb galette with drippy, unctuous walnut frangipane? Or brie and walnut whisky tart? All without the rigid perfectionism or complicated instructions of other gourmet cookbooks.

Charmian's warm, irreverent voice brings the fun back into baking at a time when home cooks—pulled from pillar to post by jobs and errands—need to have fun. The Messy Baker is a full service book that not only guides the reader through simple, delicious recipes, but is also there to help out when things wrong. For anyone who has given up in frustration when that crust has collapsed or the frosting smears, Christie's warm, practical advice is here to rescue even the worst disaster and inspire bakers to try their next recipe.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Messy Baker by Charmian Christie 26. August 2014
Von Ski-Wee's Book Corner - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
“I stand on a chair pulled up to the counter….as I strain to see everything she is doing….I will be good, better than I’ve ever been before, simply because she has answered my prayers and is teaching me to bake.”

The aforementioned quote is the introduction to The Messy Baker by Charmian Christie, which is a warm and touching tribute to her mother, the ‘Kitchen God’ in Charmian’s eyes as a child. Charmian further shares, “Never trust a person with a clean kitchen. Baking is a messy art….it means she’s baking….creating…..Be messy with me.” Now begins the journey turning ‘baking messy’ into something good and tasty.

There are the lists of essential items needed as most cookbooks have, and the “I’m-a-baker-and-I’ve-earned-it-items, which includes a stand mixer and candy thermometer. If you are willing to roll up your sleeves and let the flour and sugar fly, you are ready for this baker’s cookbook.

What I like in a cookbook is section titles and how creative they are. The sections in Messy Baker are Pastry, Flaky, Crumbly, Dippable, Sloppy, Smudgy, Gritty, and Drippy. Each recipe has two or three sentences explaining what your baking experience should be, giving it a personal feel and touch.

A few recipes I believe worth the messiness are Lime-Cilantro Dipping Sauce, Spinach and Dill Pockets, Fig and Apricot Newtons, Balsamic Roasted Strawberries, Smoked Paprika Corn Fritters, and Dill Zucchini Fritters with Lemon Tzatziki.

Charmian Christie delivers her recipes in a relaxed and humorous fashion. I recommend this cookbook to the true baker at heart, who does not mind a messy kitchen. This would also be a great gift to a happy chef with baker’s hands.

I received this book free from Rodale Books through the Net Galley Review Program for an honest and unbiased opinion.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Not Your Run of the Mill Baking Book 26. September 2014
Von Andrew'sMom - Veröffentlicht auf
The MessyBaker by Charmian Christie -- another book I'm pleasantly surprised by. Lots of great information on working with pastry and phyllo dough and full of sweet and savory recipes along with the usual "handy baker information chapter".

I love the tone of the book and I am wowed by the recipes including all of these I have marked for making:

Mushroom, Leek and Gruyere Tart, Moroccan Lamb (or Beef) Bundles, Cherry and Lemon Macaroon Meringues, Basil and Aged Cheddar Scones, Herb, Olive and Parmesan Biscotti, Rosemary and Black Olive Grissini, Smoky Mushroom Crepes, Chicken, Corn and Cilantro Empanadas, Bacon, Cheddar and Thyme Waffles, Peppery Pear and Smoked Gouda Dutch Baby, Dill Zucchini Fritters with Lemon Tzatziki, Orange Walnut Blondies with Maple Caramel Sauce, Burnt Caramel and Sea Salt Sticky Buns, Many Seed Lavash Bread, Rosemary Apricot and Pistachio Crisps, Citrus Topped Poppy Seed Bars, a chapter on sauces and caramels.

This is not your red velvet cupcake and basic baking book but it is not complex and difficult either. If you are looking to jazz up your savory and sweet baking - this is the book for you. It was off my radar until a couple weeks ago when Amazon recommended it -and I'm really glad it did. Rodale provided me with a copy of this book - but the bakers on my Christmas list will be getting a copy from me.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Both sweet and savory these recipes are for the novice and experienced baker alike. 1. September 2014

This book took me quite by surprise. I tend to be, for better or worse, one of those people who, more often than not, judge a book by its cover. This book was no different. It has an attractive cover, but one that features a delicious looking stack of chocolate brownies. So, I assumed, in my ignorance, that this book was going to be about baking cakes, pies, cookies, cobblers, that sort of thing. Not that there is anything wrong with cakes, pies, cookies, cobbles, or that sort of thing, but I tend to not be an overwhelming lover of sweets unless it's chocolate, and then just give me one big, giant, Buick-sized chunk, and I'm happy.

But this book is so much more than the cover would indicate. Charmian Christi's The Messy Baker includes savories as well. Think Leek and Gruyere Tarts, Sweet Potato Filled Samosas, as well as Raspberry-Stuffed French Toast, that is simply divine. You want divine? This book contains over 75 sweet and savory recipes, each one of them begging to be tried. While I do not move my lips when I read, I do tend to talk to myself, a lot, and believe me, there was a lot of exclaiming going on while reading this book, not to mention note taking, and ingredient buying.

Informative, conversational in tone, and perfect for the experienced and novice baker alike, it is unique in that is it sectioned by description, read: Pastry, Flaky, Crumbly, Dippable, Sloppy, Smudgy, Gritty, and Drippy. I tend to crave pastries, so I liked that I could turn to this section and find exactly what I wanted. An added plus is the comprehensive list of substitutions at the end, worthy of the price of the book alone. Flour-covered thumbs up for this one.

I enjoyed reading through the book on a quiet Sunday afternoon. It inspires you to get in the kitchen and "make a mess".
4.0 von 5 Sternen Otherwise the layout was really nice and easy to follow 15. August 2015

I requested this book more than five months ago. And I just got accepted to read it. I lost all interest in cook books since then, but here is my review.

I wish the Table Of Contents listed each recipe and page number because that is the most important thing when it comes to cookbooks for me. Otherwise the layout was really nice and easy to follow.

The recipes in this book were very interesting and the images had me drooling. The instructions were clear and easy to follow while the writing was cute and fun to read. This is definitely a cookbook I would buy.
