5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Desserts! 30 April 2009
I just bought this book as a guide to finding out some new and nice desserts for the family but got so much more than expected! The recipes are extremely varied and innovative and the presentation of these desserts is simply amazing! But then you would expect nothing less from Le Cordon Bleu! The contents are as follows:

1. Fruit Desserts
2. Iced Desserts
3. Custards, Creams and Whips
4. Souffles, Mousses and Meringues
5. Soft Cheese Desserts
6. Batters and Omelettes
7. Basic Techniques
8. Cakes and Gateux
9. Pastries
11.Petit Fours
12.Finishing Touches

I have to say my favourite section was the choux pastry and buns - there is so much you can do with this mix and the pictures just compel you to try some of these ideas. All the recipes are laid out in a well structured manner with clear directions which show you the full recipe from the start. After using this book I feel that if I was to try another cooking book then i would definitely head to the Le Cordon Bleu collection first! Thoroughly recommended!

Excellent book for advanced cooks but perfect as well for someone just starting to bake. I wholeheardly recommend this book : )

The book is such a text book about home made desserts. but some points need to be explain with details. for ex. how to prepare powder gelatine? I made cheescake but gelatine phase was terrible. the cake didn't stiff. I recommend this book who can't go France anyway but miss there
