    OFJCC Palo Alto JCCHere's your chance to ask the experts why your souffle keeps falling! Say "Dorie Greenspan" and think baking. The renowned author of 13 cookbooks and winner of five James Beard and two IACP awards offers a collection that celebrates the sweet, the savory and the simple. Every recipe is signature Dorie: easy—beginners can ace every technique in this book—and accessible, made with everyday ingredients. Are there surprises? Of course! You'll find ingenious twists like Berry biscuits. Footlong cheese sticks made with cream puff dough. Apple pie with browned butter spiced like warm mulled cider. A s'mores ice cream cake with velvety chocolate sauce, salty peanuts and toasted marshmallows. It's a book of simple yet sophisticated baking.
