Bake: The Essential Companion
By: Debora Yuza

The pictures are naturally styled, well lit and detail oriented. 

There are no fancy overly styled food pictures here,

I can say that their pictures are honest and have a rustic-homemade feel. 

Because of how simple the pictures are, somehow it gives me the confidence 

that I too can bake like that at home without burning my house down.
