100 Morning Treats: With Muffins, Rolls, Biscuits, Sweet and Savory Breakfast Breads, and More

100 Morning Treats is a delightful collection of breakfast breads, rolls, and more curated by Sarah Kieffer. Due out 9th May 2023 from Chronicle Books, it's 304 pages and will be available in hardcover and ebook formats. 

This is a comprehensive and versatile collection of well written recipes for breakfast and brunch foods, both sweet and savory. Recipes are arranged thematically in chapters: muffins scones & quickbreads, coffee & bundt cakes, sweet yeasted & fried treats, laminated pastries, weekend treats, base doughs & breads, and extras (drinks, streusels, jams, and syrups). Recipes are written with a description, ingredients in a bullet list sidebar, and followed by step-by-step prep instructions. Recipe ingredients are listed in imperial (American) units with metric units in parentheses (yay!). Required ingredients will probably be easy to source at any well stocked grocery store in North America.

The entire collection is beautifully photographed throughout and the food is well styled, attractive, and appetizing. 

The author/editors have also included useful appendices such as a suggested playlist of tunes, a bibliography and resource lists, conversion chart, and cross referenced index.

Four and a half stars. This is a solidly useful, versatile, and appealing reference and will be at home in a wide variety of kitchens. It would be a good selection for public library acquisition, home use, and gifting purposes. 

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
