4.0 out of 5 stars Seductive Cakes - shelve the diet!, 6 Oct. 2009
By 
This review is from: Kaffeehaus (Hardcover)
Following a city trip to Budapest where I sampled many delicious cakes in the Hungarian-Austrian style, I really wanted to have a recipe book to create these sweet seductions back home. This is the only book in the English language I could find. Rodgers covers classic cakes from the traditional cafes in Vienna and Prague as well as Budapest and the book is visually lovely with many colour photographs to make your mouth water. As a bonus - if like me you are fascinated by the history of the coffee houses - the author provides some insight into 'the story behind' various of the famous cakes, cafes and Kaffeehaus culture in general. The recipes do require some baking skills as many of the cakes covered are the traditional 'patisserie' ones created by trained pastry chefs, although there are also plenty of recipes for creation by a less accomplished home baker.

English readers be aware that this is an American cookery book which uses American style measures (but which can easily be translated into the equivalent here).
