At this time of year, when we start fielding specific, urgent baking questions from readers, we think fondly of a scene from the movie "Annie Hall": Woody Allen's and Diane Keaton's characters are in line at a theater. Allen finds himself in need of an expert and is able to pull the perfect one from behind a movie poster.

We've done the next-best thing, harnessing the brainpower of some of the best bakers in the business; see who here. For the next few months, we will direct your queries to the pros and post their answers here, with updates each week.
