Patisserie at Home,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Patisserie at Home - Step-by-step recipes to help you master the art of French pastry (Hardcover)
Let me start with ....this book is okay, it has a variety of recipes.
I have a lot of cook books but am put off this one as I don't like cook books to say within a recipe make the ** whatever** the day before (from another recipe previously listed in the book) or before you start you need to have made the **whatever eg pate sablee** then your ready to start on this recipe. Its very frustrating (well to me in any case) to have to go backwards and forwards to be able to make something. I want straight no nonsense instructions that are all included within the same recipe that I'm trying. For those of you who are a bit more advance in baking this book may well suit you if you already know to make a pate sablee (sweet pastry to the rest of us who don't know its fancy title ). Other than that its a good book. But one for the more advanced baker I think.
