Kneaders Bakery & Café Cookbook Review
I am a cookbook junkie. I love a good cookbook. And since I’ve spent the summer in the land of Kneaders, this was a natural fit for me.
It’s a big beautiful hardcover cookbook, with lots of mouthwatering food photography. Yum! While you can find some of the recipes on Kneaders blog, it’s nice to have them all collected (plus more) in one enjoyable volume.
The large colorful photographs make it difficult to choose which of the more than 100 recipes I should make first, but it might be the Vanilla Fresh Fruit Cake on page 230. Or maybe I’ll make the Hot Cross Buns on page 152. Or I could make. . . Well, you get the idea.
If you love Kneaders or you love cooking, you want this book. So does the cookbook lover in your life. It would make a perfect holiday or birthday, or please-bake-me-something gift for your favorite cook.

About The Author
More than twenty-five years ago, Colleen Worthington rolled up her sleeves and built a baking empire out of her own kitchen, which provided a place for her kids to learn hard work, dedication, and creativity. Together with her husband, Gary, the Worthingtons pursued their interest in scratch-made artisan breads by training at both the American Institute of Baking and San Francisco Baking Institute.
They worked closely with Lehi Roller Mills to develop an exclusive flour mixture and located an ideal, traditional Italian hearth-stone oven. Their first bakery opened in Orem, Utah, in 1997, where they served European hearth breads. Within a few months, they expanded to offer a variety of sandwiches, soups, salads, and pastries. The café also sells a variety of home and seasonal décor.
What began in Colleen Worthington’s kitchen a little more than twenty-five years ago has grown into a successful family-owned bakery and café business with time-tested, delicious recipes gathered in this one-of-a-kind cookbook.
