Steve Shepard is wondering about culinary technical writers and cookbooks

I don't cook, I bake. For those of you who don't know, there IS a difference.

Anyway, if you don't have it, go to any bookstore and take a gander at Rose Levy Berenbaum's _The Cake Bible_ or _The Pastry Bible_. Rose is a baker extrodinaire, and she's really into the whys and chemistry of baking. She presents her recipes in a straightfroward manner AND includes a sidebar that tells you why you always all salt to a recipe with baking powder.

Not only have I garnered great recipes from her books, but I've learned about "how" to experiment. I think you'll like her style and it should give you some ideas.

Good luck!
