All the recipes are written with Polzine's quirky, relatable "you can do this" enthusiasm to assure readers that they can achieve excellent results. Following in the footsteps of such esteemed bakers as Nancy Silverton and Dorie Greenspan, with Baking at the 20th Century Cafe , Polzine offers a new entry into the essential baking cookbook canon.
