I have bought this entire series. I love the illustrations and the presentation of the book. Equally as wonderful are the detailed instructions inside and the tips and tricks to help you along the way. If you "display" cookbooks, as I do, this one will be front and center for sure.
I bought this for my wife who enjoys making cakes and has always dreaded making pastries. However, this book has changed everything as the book goes through every process step-by-step and now we have our own French patisserie at home! A must buy for those seeking to make French delicious pastries at home.
I bake a lot but never tries anything too fancy. This book is excellent as it has a picture of ever thing you are making and breaks down the recipes so they are really easy to follow. I would say that a lot of them are time consuming or have to be done over a couple of days, which I don't mind but if its not what you are looking for then maybe don't get a patisserie book.
This book contains a lot of the basic, but essential, recipes required to master French patisserie, as well as more complicated deserts, cakes and sweetmeats, and will encourage you to experiment with you own recipes once you've tried some of the techniques. If you love graphic design, you'll really like the look of the book too, with some really nice illustrations and layouts. My only, minor, criticism is that some of the recipes are a little hard to follow and require you to stop and think about what is going on.
I absolutely love this book- those who cannot attend a baking class or tutorials - this is perfect for them and for those who love to bake - detailed minutely - very simple - can’t go wrong - great help - thanks 👍
