With step-by-step photos for pastries and icings, it's easy to get your head around the more complex techniques, and the fantastic photography of bright, multi-layered cakes looks beautiful. You'll be a contestant on Great British Bake Off in no time!' --Great British Food magazine

Edd clarifies all those aspects you were unsure about before - and gives us really helpful tips. I have other patisserie books, which I look through droolingly and then put away again because they just scare me off trying. This book is going to get very splattered, greasy and flour-dusted because I am going to work my way through it all. Well done Edd!
There are a lot of tips that can be really useful in the book, like how long can you keep them, how to keep them etc. -- questions that everyone asks but no one answers! Flipping through the book makes me feel like I'm travelling through France and stumbling upon little gems in some small town with lovely pastries.
Strong white bread flour is on sale in Tesco right now. Aching to try making a simpler version of the classic croissant now!
Having looked at all the recipes I'm glad to see there's a nice range in the book including basics and more challenging recipes. I've already tried the Kouign Amann recipe (after seeing them on Great British Bake Off) and they turned out brilliantly. Can't wait to try out lots of other recipes.
This book is a thing of great beauty. The photographs and design alone are outstanding, but your recipes are so detailed, easy to follow and classic.
Well done to you! x
All of the recipes I have made, including the caramels, madeleines and some of the pastries have all been reliable and worked without fault. I highly recommend this book for someone looking to get into patisserie at home.
Everything I've tried so far has worked well and I think on occasion, look even better than the pics in the book!
Well worth the investment for any enthusiastic baker.
