This wonderful book allows you to make all of their best bakes in the comfort of your own kitchen. It is so interesting to read about Gerhard Jenne's life and his path to becoming a master baker, and if he ever wrote a biography I would most definitely want to give that a read. Flicking through the book is such a joy, with the cakes photographed beautifully and each recipe having an enjoyable paragraph preceding it.
So far, I have baked the Almond St Clement cake which is a light, flourless sponge made with almonds and oranges. It turned out beautifully moist and light, with rave reviews from my family. Second on my agenda was their Apple Strudel, or Apfelstrudel, which was the first time making my own pastry and it was so fun to do from start to finish. The recipe was easy to follow with clear instructions, and stretching out the thin translucent dough was nowhere near as worrisome as I expected it to be. It tasted absolutely delicious with a dollop of creme fraiche and it made me want to fly over to Germany just to sample all of the baked goods.
After two roaring successes I must bake their famous Curly Whirly Cake, as well as try the Bakewell Slice, Fig and Whisky Brownies and Ninja Slice to name but a few recipes that stood out to me.
I've recommended this book to my friends and family who also love to bake as much as me, as it's one of the few where you want to bake practically everything you see, and the recipes are challenging yet reliable. Also, I love how @konditor_and_cook are interested to see your efforts on Twitter, and always have a cheery reply and kind words (even if your version doesn't look quite as professional as theirs!).
Spurred on by my success I ordered the book. It is stunning, clear recipes with wonderful photographs.
I have to say as a recent convert to twitter I have found the encouragement and advice from @konditorand cook inspiring and friendly.
I aim to bake my way through the book. The Mela Cannella (my latest bake) is delicious and once again easier than I thought. Follow the recipes and you can't go wrong.
If you love baking, want something a little different this beautiful book will deliver. If you buy one cookery book this year THIS IS THE ONE. If you know an avid baker this would make an exceptional gift.

Some of the recipes are rather complicated, the results are OK but not worth the extra time & fiddling aroundPublished 14 months ago by TC
Lovely cookbook bought for my daughter, lots of tempting recipes, great tips and a handy section at the back for basic recipes, can't wait to try the end products.Published 18 months ago by Amazon Customer
A little disappointing as most of the recipes depended largely on the decorationPublished 21 months ago by ccbath
