1.0 out of 5 stars great disappointment, 9 Feb. 2011
not a great cookery book... similar issues as with the other cookbook from the same author. it seems to be more a display of images and product advertisement than an actually useful book from which getting recipes to try. overall not a great cookbook.

1.0 out of 5 stars a great disappointment, 19 Jan. 2011
i had bought the book after being seduced by the nice layout and the pictures. unfortunately, i must say, this book does not live at all to the expectations. every recipe tried turned disappointgly bad.... this would be true for cupcakes and muffins expecially. i would say the recipes, being adapted and scaled down from commercial quantities (and ovens) have not been properly (or maybe at all) tested in a domestic environment... cooking times are not accurate (but this is a minor gripe), cakes overflow the suggested containers and cakes turn out stodgy and with a near bread-like consistency. i guess this book is only made to be used as a coffee table one and just to showcase/advertise the prodcuts from the bakery... definitely not a cookery book of any use. only buy as a reading material.

5.0 out of 5 stars best book on pastry so far, 7 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Pastry (Hardcover)
this is one of the best books on the subject; clearly illustrated step by step instruction make it easy to follow the recipes. the book is divided in chapters for each type of pastry, and for each type there's a good selection of recipe ideas to make the most of your home made pastry... one book you will always go back to.

4.0 out of 5 stars very useful, 25 July 2010
if you're serious about baking, you will need to get one of these. it is amazing to see how different the temperature readings on the oven and the actual measured temperature are.


Adventures with Chocolate: 80 Sensational Recipes
Adventures with Chocolate: 80 Sensational Recipes
by Paul A. Young
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars it's an inspiration, 25 July 2010
the book is, as i expected, an inspiration. there's a combination of various recipes, including some unusual savoury dishes that are flavoured with chocolate. the book deserves top marks, only remark is that finding the ingredients for the recipes will be challenging.
