Product Description


'This is one part of a new series of small but perfectly formed recipe books which each give you a well-known chef's Top 10 recipes - so you won't have to spend hours deciding what to cook.' (GLAMOUR)

'Roux speaks with passion and authority on the subject... This is no throwaway book: each recipe is well thought out.... Sweet.' (EVERYTHING FRANCE)

'This range of mini-cookery books featuring ten favourite recipes from the country's top chefs and cookery writers would make ideal presents. Each book contains a range of mouth-watering, easy to follow recpies that are impossible to resist.' (CAKE CRAFT & DECORATION)

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointed 11 Nov 2010
By dthing2
A huge personal disappointment as most of these recipes are repeated in his other books.
I was expecting desserts with clear 'wow factor' and it wasn't fourth coming.
If you want good dessert's, look in Le Gavroche by Michel Roux Jr. fantatsic book or Michel Rouxs' Pastry Book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite small but sweet 17 Aug 2009
I guess the clue is in the name as it really is just ten recipes. The book makes a good stocking filler or little present but is quite limited in its appeal and there are most certainly better dessert recipe books out there

4.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected 30 Aug 2009
By Ian Aldridge - Published on Amazon.com
This is a small book that has recipes that are easy to complete but do not indicate that they come from one of the UK's best known restaurateurs. Michael Roux Snr has a deserved reputation as a chef but these recipes do not reflect that Michelain Star expectancy.
