3.0 out of 5 stars Pierre Herme Latest, 4 Mar 2012
This review is from: Pierre Herme Pastries (Hardcover)
I have many of his books including a very expensive one, Pierre Herme patisserie. I bought this on the strength of the cover shot-it's a great idea raspberry infused with a little red pepper, and is an interesting tart. Ultimately the book is not as inspirational as I thought that it was going to be. There are a few interesting things inside but otherwise, perhaps not.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic, 4 Mar 2012
AS a working chef with a strong interest in pastry work, this book gives answers to many fine techniques needed to master the art of chocolate work. As a reference book it has all the qualities that you need, and its stunning photo work and guide steps are invaluable. Like The Roux Brothers on patisserie many years ago, if you can master the work in this book, you will be on your way to being a very fine patissier indeed. Brilliant!
