Book Description

18 July 2013 Square: the Cookbook
The second volume of the extraordinary work from two-Michelin-star chef, Philip Howard that began in September 2012 with The Square: The Cookbook Volume 1: Savoury. Regarded amongst his peers as one of the world's great culinary artists, his lifetime of dedication and creativity have gone into writing this monumental work of gastronomic creativity and technical expertise. The Square: The Cookbook Volume 2: Sweet gives precise instructions on how to create food of top Michelin standard. Meticulous, detailed and fiercely intelligent, this is a book that will set the benchmark for books of the highest culinary ambition. Featuring brilliant dishes such as his signature Brillat Savarin Cheesecake with Passion Fruit and Lime, and Lemon Posset with a Blueberry Compote and Warm Vanilla Beignets. Philip Howard's incredible second volume features a full repertoire of sweet recipes, each accompanied by the beautiful photography of Jean Cazals. A must-have book for all chefs, but a great book for keen amateurs and serious foodies alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterful work unlikely to be bettered 5 Aug 2013
By R. J. de Bulat TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is the second and concluding part of recipe books by Philip Howard and does not disappoint: it is, actually, a tour de force. In reviewing the savoury cookbook, I suggested that many readers may find it difficult to replicate a good few of the recipes it contained: this was not a criticism, merely an acknowledgement of the author's mastery. While the recipes in this book are no less excellent, they are much more accessible and will seem easier to reproduce. Great care has been taken to explain and provide instructions at every step of the way from overview and planning to timings and execution: in this respect, both books are exemplary and a cut above many cookbooks you can buy. As usual, the food photography is first class and everything about the book shouts out "quality." Anyone interested in great cookery and wanting to try to produce food of excellence should get this book on desserts, if only to try and perfect a few of the recipes that it contains. Together, savoury and sweet, they form the best cookery books I posses and I have well in excess of 200. The recipes are challenging and not for every day, but definitely sometimes, especially when it matters, then you will be glad to have a book like this to hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! 29 Aug 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a fabulous book; not that the recipes within are easily achievable (I have tried one with huge success - and hours of time!); it more the inspiration behind the man, the restaurant and the philosophy for food. I loved it - I also have the 'savoury' one as well; again inspirational! This, and its companion book are beautifully laid out in great detail and this is where it scores a massive plus for me … many of the techniques are daunting but Phil Howard explains them so well and so clearly anything seems possible – and is!

I would like to try more of the contents, and hope to do so ... it’s certainly a challenge for even the most experienced home cook, but well worth it.

My next ambition is lunch at The Square …

More please ....

4.0 out of 5 stars Takes up where book 1 left off....... 17 July 2013
Format:Hardcover
Brillant explanations of great tasting desserts and puddings. Pretty much beyond reproach .
The only thing I am not really that thrilled about are the photos themselves which seem overly re-touched and doctored,so much so that I look at some of them as I looked at the photos in book 1 and all of a sudden nothing seems real.
Otherwise, my mistrust of the photos aside , like like like!

We ate here in February and adored the food. Bought this for my husband, who loves cooking. Recipes are very detailed and quite complicated, not for a novice, but the food is amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Book for Dessert Lovers 6 Nov 2013
By Zelda
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As I liked Volume 1 of this book so much, I bought The Square Volume 2. The photos of the dishes are exquisite. Again I found the layout of the book very easy to read. I particularly like that you are told which part of the recipe can be done in advance. I am looking forward to cooking the Christmas Pudding from the recipe in this book.
