This is a lovely little book, with fabulous recipes throughout. My favourite are the chocolate, hazelnut and cherry friands. Impress your friends with some little cakes that are much more stylish than cupcakes. Gorgeous!

It's Greek (or New Zealand) to me 18 May 2006
By Roady Jane - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Not to say this isn't a fine book. What I wish I'd realized is that it's from New Zealand. I am in the United States. Some measurements are metric. Some aren't. Many measurements are by weight, so have a kitchen scale handy. Temps are celsius. I'll have to do many conversions. Other problems: many things have different names than we use here, so I have to translate to figure out what they are. Also, some things are not foods available here, as far as I know, like quark. What is that?

Cookbooks are better if they are from your region, in terms of measurement and temperature systems -- and available ingredients. Some of the cakes sound bizarre to me for that reason, but there are lots of interesting-sounding items to try!

Love, love, love ... 8 Sept. 2014
By Maree - Published on
Format: Paperback
Love, love, love this book. Haven't had a failure yet or one that I haven't liked (or that my customers haven't liked- I own a café). To those reviewers who've complained about the measurements (metric) and the temperatures (Celsius), now you might have an appreciation of how non-Americans feel when we struggle with the cup measurements and hard-to-find ingredients that we encounter in US cookbooks. Highly recommend.

Little Cafe Cakes 18 Nov. 2011
By Valencia - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is not written for an American audience. The measurements were European (i.e. grams and weights for ingredients). Sorry, call me lazy, but I just don't want to hassle with the conversions. Also, I'm not sure whose tastes these recipes might appeal to, but some of the recipes were pretty far out there as far as flavor combinations. In addition, the ingredients and tools needed are somewhat uncommon and hard to come by in everyday stores (by the way, I live in a fairly large city). Beautiful food photos. Nice to look at, but not a great cookbook.
