This miraculous little book is the distillation of all Michel Roux's dessert wizardry. It was one of a series of such books published at the time and so is now hard to get, yet it is one of a core of 'desert island recipe books' that I have hauled with me living in three countries.
The book contains the essentials of french desserts - clafoutis, crepes, souffle, sabayon, choux puffs, creme brulee and others, as well as the basics such as creme patisserie. The recipes are unbreakable even at the hands of inexperienced cook (myself, six years ago) and yet are impressive enough for any dinner party.
I am not normally a fan of 'Little Book of...' styled books, yet this is the one exception. I would recommend this book for anyone disgruntled with 'fancy recipes that never work', those venturing into french cooking for the first time and for those who would like a book of excellent stand-by desserts. Start looking for copies now!

Some of the reviews for this listing are for the 200+ page book of the same name.

This is a small, 32 page booklet containing ten recipes from Michel Roux. They are:

Blackberry clafoutis; Pear and ginger sabayon; Banana ramekins with caramel topping; Raspberry ice cream; Warm peach feuilletes; Chocolate creme brulee; Surprise orange pancakes; Tutti frutti choux puffs; Hot Grand Marnier Souffles; Apple Hedgehog. Additionally, there are recipes for rough puff pastry, creme patissiere and choux paste.

It's perfectly fine if one of the above recipes catches your eye, but other Roux books represent better value for money.

This is a booklet and should be stated as such - for the price.
Otherwise good and clear instructions as expected from Michel Roux as the author.

Disappointing, I thought I was buying a recipe "book", what I received was what I would call a little booklet, it only had about ten recipes. There wasn't enough description about what you were getting, I feel it should have stated how many pages there were. Fine if that is what you want but it wasn't what I was expecting.
