A mustReviewed in Canada on 11 February 2020
Replacing a lost copy, this is a must for anyone interested in baking.
Definitely not a cookbook for the average Baker and that's exactly why I got it.Reviewed in the United States on 19 October 2019
Definitely not a cookbook for the average Banker and that's exactly why I got it. The marriage a different flavors with different ingredients Works quite well for a basis for other recipes that you may want to make yourself or improvise. Some of the ingredients are listed may be hard to find the area but that does not mean that you can't use other choices for flavors. Kirsch and coffee are quite common ingredients in a lot of the recipes but that does not mean you have to use those I find personally that Grand Marnier was quite well chocolate and almonds. Here is a great example, there's a recipe for cognac caramel sauce which is quite good on cheesecake and not to mention a cake as well , if you switch out the Cognac and use Grand Marnier you get a flavor that is more intense than just cognac. With can be paired with cashews and chocolate tart. My variation of the very rich chocolate cake recipe in the book. I'm very happy with this cookbook.
