This is a collection largely comprised of traditional and long established desserts, with not too many modern, up to the minute inventive and original recipes. Sometimes you might think you have gone back to the seventies, with the likes of baked Alaska, lemon meringue pie, creme caramel and Blackforest gateau.

All the recipes are clear and easy to follow, and almost all recipes have a photograph to show what you are aiming for, always useful for these kind of recipes.

A useful compendium for traditional desserts to have on your cookbook shelf.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely recipes - scrumptious 25 Oct 2009
By Jasper
I love the majority of the recipes in this book. It's not one of those where you scan through and can't find more than 50% that you would actually cook. Can recommend these Essentials books as I have the Vegetarian one too and that is also great. Pictures and recipes easy to follow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book Ever 24 Dec 2011
By Doug
This is the best cooking book I have ever owned. Great recipes and lots of pictures with them. The book also has little bits of information eg. About amaretti biscuits and other ingredient. Definitely would recommend this book to anyone as the difficulty varies so everyone can make something and improve there skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Essential 1 Oct 2010
I am a housewife and culinary student. My interest is in making dessert. I found this book by chance and my opinion is that it is one book that contains a massive collection of different types of desserts that appeal to most people. Another important aspect is that each recipe is accompanied by a picture so that you have an idea of how your end result should look like. The book is informative, giving the reader tips and know-hows. All in all, I would recommend this book as a good buy!
