This book has beautiful photographs both of Paris, the shops, architecture and the essential patisserie recipes. Some great addresses to visit too. Only problem is the book isn't big enough! Would have liked it to be 3 times as many pages. Would recommend it to any cook who wants to sit down with a coffee for an educational read and refer to book for special occasions and ideas.

This is a truly beautiful book, with evocative pictures of Paris as well as mouthwatering images of the recipes. More than a cookery book it gives the reader an insight of Paris and where to visit for the best pastries and confectionery. The recipes look easy to follow, so far I have made the friands and the rich dark chocolate ice cream - both were a resounding success. I didn't have any raspberries in the fridge for the friands and used preserved wild cherries instead which worked very well. Some other recipes which I will try soon : Chocolate Eclairs, Macarons, Tarte au Citron, Brioche Nanterre.

Sweet Paris isn't your typical recipe book. It's filled with insider knowledge on the best places in Paris to find traditional French desserts and treats such as chocolate eclairs, macarons, strawberry tarts, brioche, creme brulee, salted butter caramel, and of course - hot chocolate. A brief history of some of the major Parisian patisserie shops are included, as well as a history of many of the featured desserts. There is a great selection of recipes that compliment the written content of the book as well.

Sweet Paris is made up of seven chapters and also includes several pages of addresses so you can easily find your favourite pastry shop while your there. The thing that really makes Sweet Paris stand out from the other books on my shelf is the photography. The pages are filled with stunning images of Parisian pastries, pastry shops and every day images of Paris. I could stare at the photos all day long!

Some of the recipes that I've bookmarked to make in the future are:

Classic French Chocolate Eclairs
Traditional Tart au Citron
Bittersweet Tarte au Chocolate
Homemade Blackcurrant Sorbet with Cassis
Classic Caramel au Beurre Sale

I can't wait to try more recipes from Sweet Paris, and also explore some of the many pastry shops and tea salons listed in the book. I will definitely be bringing my copy with me on my next trip to Paris.

Sweet Paris by Michael Paul is the first recipe book I have ever sat down and read cover to cover. That is because it it much more than just a recipe book. As well as containing delicious traditional french recipes, it also contains a lot of beautiful photography all sorts of interesting facts. Do you know who the patron saint of pastry chefs is? Or which classic French treat actually comes from Austria? Read Sweet Paris to find out.
The really nice thing about the recipes in this book is that they are time honoured classics, no gimmicks and twists. You won't need to go out and buy a lot of fancy new ingredients; there's not a sprinkle of edible glitter insight.

I bought this for my wife after a trip to Paris. Not only does it analyse what is so special about Parisienne patisserie, it also evokes what is so special about Paris.

As baking has become more and more popular over the last year or two, some are branching out from cupcakes etc and are looking for something fresh, new, creative and of a higher standard. If you are, you won't go wrong with this book. It not only details how to recreate some of the the popular items you will find in a patisserie, but it shows you the French way of creating them which is, undeniably, the best.
