Don't be fooled by a pretty cover,
This review is from: Miette Bakery Cookbook: Recipes from San Francisco's Most Charming Pastry Shop (Hardcover)
Utter rubbish, don't be fooled by a pretty cover.
The recipes start by saying they are difficult to follow, they were not joking! I wanted to bake a cake not read an essay on baking cakes!
The layout of the recipes is atrocious, who wants to spend time flicking between pages in the book to make one cake? To make the lemon cake you start with a basic cake mix at the front of the book, the syrup around page 100, the icing at the end and then the assembly back where you started.
My other serious irritation is that the book only gives the recipes in american weights and measures, if selling in the UK the book should at least provide an appendix with a conversion table.
Lesson learnt- never cheat on Nigella!
