I've been following Lauren Ko on Instagram for a long time cause I was just obsessed by her designs, so when she came out with a book it seemed like a no-brainer for me and I got it straight away.
I've already made two pies from this book and I can tell you that it's really fun (but it takes patience for the designs).
The recipes are very detailed and easy to follow; the quantities are in cups and already translated in grams.
Mind though that the temperature of the oven is only in Farenheit.
Other than that, if you follow the recipes step by step, they're gonna come out right.
1) The pies and tarts will come out right from the first attempt, however the design takes practice so don't expect them to be "picture perfect" from the first go.
2) Don't base your idea of success on the pictures in the book cause they are edited to look perfect. Colors and texture may vary. For example, I did a lemon and basil tart which on the book looks bright yellow but, due to the presence of chopped basil, it didn't in real life.
Other than that, have fun and happy baking!
