A tasty book,
This review is from: Starting Over One Cake at a Time (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)Gesine Bullock-Prado is the sister of film star, Sandra Bullock. For nine years she ran her sister's film production company but became increasingly disillusioned with Hollywood and decided to move to Vermont and open her own bakery.
Warning: this is not a good book to eat if you are hungry, or if you are a complete and utter cake and pastry addict like me. Her descriptions of food are delicious and the recipes made me want to try them out.
This is quite a charming book. Gesine's passion for pastries really showed, and it seems that it dates back to her childhood and her German grandmother. I loved her stories of life in the bakery, the people who work there and her customers. It's not a book with any real substance, but it's a very pleasurable read.
