5.0 out of 5 stars The Complete Art of Pastry Making, Catherine Atkinson, 23 April 2003
I was very excited about receiving this book. I love to bake and this book seemed a natural follow up to cakes and cookies that I usually make. Pastries always had an element of the unknown and held an air of mystery for me, so to speak. However, this book simplifies the art!
It starts off with a brief history on pastry and how it evolved. The different types of pastries and the cooking tools and instruments are discussed in detail.
The recipes are amazing and it is an ideal mixture of both sweet and savoury pastries. Like most recipe books, this one is also beautifully illustrated. I book marked several pages to try out in my first reading alone! This is going to keep me occupied on many saturday afternoons and I am looking forward to it!

What an excellent book. As a once professional Chef and having lost most of my cook books due to relocating I have started to build up my cook book library and I came across this fine book. For the pastry enthusiast this is a must have covering all the fundamentals of the pastry making section, in fact listing some recipies i didn't know. It covers recipes in fine detail, has numerous recipes from savoury to sweet and definitely a great purchase. In hind sight I should have ordered the "hard back version".
