Just received this book in the post and I am already pouring over every page. So much within the pages of this book appeals to me.

- I like the layout of each individual recipe on each page. It's clearly divided into Objectives, Necessary Equipment Needed and Portion Sizes.

- I like that there are important French words included within the text; it helps a great deal with my understanding of the language.

- I particularly like the little F.Y.I sections printed below the page of each recipe. I'm a bit of a stickler for general knowledge, and learning something new that's related to the recipe at hand helps round out the understanding of each dish prepared. Love this feature!

- I like that each recipe comes with a table of ingredients with quantities in both metric and U.S measures; makes my life a whole lot easier.

- Lovely glossy photos. Lovely division of recipes. Tasteful colour scheme. Appealing fonts and lettering.

What I DO NOT LIKE is the binding. GAH!! Everytime I flip a page it snags and I worry it's going to rip the page ... and this is just the first day I'm flipping through this book too. I just know that in a matter of months (if not weeks) pages are going to be falling out. That is my only complaint about this book. Am otherwise so very pleased with the content.

I've become a bit of a collector of baking books and I thought I might be stepping outside my comfort zone when I ordered this but my-o-my! what a fantastic collection of delights. The recipes are thorough and provide details of all equipment needed as well as a comprehensive list of ingredients. The pictures are wonderful and inspirational. The one thing lacking is in the timing for each recipe and I think this could have been included in a box adjacent to the ingredients but overall I am extremely satisfied with this and look forward to trying out many of the recipes.

Being half way through a 17 week course in patisserie and confectionary I was on the look out for a book that would cover all the classic recipes. This does a very good job. It tells you the equipment you need for each recipe as well as the ingredients. Save the expense of a course (£400)and buy this book and loads of ingredients instead! Plus remember not to give up or become despondent if things do not go well immediately. Even with the help of a tutor things go wrong and you learn to try again. The only negative comment I can make is that as the book is of a binder type (which is excellent for laying flat on the work surface)the pages may damage if not handled carefully.

As a lover of French patisserie and baking, I find this book absolutely amazing. I have tried many of the recipes with very good results and there are so many more that remain to be tried. It is very interesting as the approach is that of a proper teaching method, with learning objectives, etc. I have learned a lot about the different techniques behind classic recipes. Do not let anybody fool you!!!! if you want it to be french Patisserie, always refer to this book. I have compared the same recipe with other books and the level of complexity of this one is far greater so are the results. It is my absolute baking bible.

This item is excellent for young old chefs and food lovers everywhere. It is easy to follow and yields good results every time. The only draw back is that there is no suggestions on variations of the dishes present. The information is gold and s joy to read
