I have eagerly awaited receiving this book and so far have not been disappointed - the design of the book is perhaps what first thing that grabs your attention. Beautiful photography and the scalloped pages draw you into it before you can say no. And why would you want to?
The section explaining basic techniques, etc. is worth taking the time to read and will make the rest of the book easier to follow.
The recipes themselves are mouth watering. Some may appear a little adventurous for the home baker but I am willing to give them a go. For UK readers the recipes are given in American cup sizes, etc. but these can easily be converted with a little searching on-line.
My only slight criticism would be that not all of the recipes include a photograph, which would have been helpful when trying to recreate at home, but on the whole this book would be a pretty and practical addition to any keen amateur bakers collection.
