5.0 out of 5 stars First?
I can hardly believe this book has not yet been reviewed... I suspect it will turn into a modern classic.

I am quite happy to give it the full 5 stars even though there are some flaws. Firstly there are not enough photos to show you the end results you can achieve - but I can forgive it for that. The ingredients are given in cups and imperial measures - but...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good recipes but not enough pictures
Nice book, well written with good recipes which are very easy to understand and follow.

I was disappointed by the number of pictures of which there were very few. Only pictures of 34 cookies and a few of the baking equipment. The pictures are very good, but it is not very inspiring with so few pictures.

2.0 out of 5 stars Irritatingly only US measures, 11 Mar 2011
This review is from: Chewy Gooey Crispy Crunchy Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cookies by Alice Medrich (Paperback)
Not by far a bad book - the description are detailed and descriptive with lots of hints. But...why do publishers and editors think not across the borders. We in Europe are buying books, too, you know. I am getting exasperated by the cup and spoon measures. Why not ounces and metric included. Hate it or love it, metric is precise and leaves no margin of error. baking needs to be precise. This book it now a turn-off. I do not want to get baking messing around with spoons and cup measures and converting it to a workable recipe. It is a pity. This book could have been a great one, now it is a frustratingly mediocre one. Publishers around the world - Europe is big and cooking/banking in a big way. Be user friendly.
