Just out of college, my first real dessert cookbook was Emily Luchetti’s Stars Desserts. I cooked out of it until the pages were falling out. Eighteen years later, Luchetti, the executive pastry chef at Waterbar and Farallon, has released her latest cookbook called The Fearless Baker (Little Brown, $30), co-authored by Lisa Weiss. To write it, she worked in the kitchen with fledgling, insecure bakers, taking notes all the while so that her book would be one that even someone paralyzed with baking trepidation could master.
