Clayton's first book, The Complete Book of Breads, won the coveted Tastemaker cookbook award and was praised by Craig Claiborne as perhaps the best book on the subject in the English language. Of Clayton's The Complete Book of Pastry, which also received a Tastemaker award, Claiborne said: One of the most important cookbooks of this year if not this decade. With recipes that are well written and easy to follow, Clayton shows that soup making is neither time-consuming nor difficult, and in any case is well worth the effort.
