LOS ANGELES, CA – August 3, 2018 – Author of Seasoning Substitutions, Jean B. MacLeod, has released another time and money saving guide- this time for home bakers.
There’s nothing more disappointing than embarking on a baking project only to discover that a key ingredient is not in the pantry. Of course, there is always the option of eliminating that ingredient from the recipe or making a quick trip to the grocery store. However, the truth is eliminating a component does not yield the same results and earning a trip to the convenience store is not convenient when one is in the middle of a baking project.
Macleod’s latest book, Baking Substitutions: The A-Z of Common, Unique and Hard to Find Ingredients is an easy to use, helpful and organized resource that shows bakers how to:
- Make emergency substitutions for common (and not so common) ingredients
- Create commercial knock-offs
- Convert dozens of recipes into gluten-free, lactose-free and vegan versions
But it’s not just about creating substitutions for unavailable ingredients. Baking Substitutions enlightens the average bakers on measuring methods and weight equivalents, baking pan equivalents and oven temperature equivalents.
MacLeod is an enthusiastic culinarian and a long time collector of practical tips for the home and garden. Baking Substitutions is her 6th book of useful tips for the consumer. Her other titles are The Waste-Wise Kitchen Companion, The Waste Wise Gardener, The Kitchen Paraphernalia Handbook, and If Only I’d Listened to Mom: Hundreds of Household Remedies.
When asked about the motivation for writing the book, she explained: “I wanted to share the results of my research; to arm the home baker with all the tools necessary for success.”
Baking Substitutions enables bakers to try new recipes without investing in one-off ingredients, avoid waste and save time and money. The book is available in paperback format on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and independent bookstores.
