I have tried most of the bread receipes and all turned out brilliant. The French Baguette wasn't like the one you buy in France, but it was still v. good. The Courgette and Tomato Quiche was wonderfull. I have only tried to make The Royale (Chocolate) and Plenel unfortunately none of them turned out well- had to throw them away. Pain au raisin- very good. I advise you to buy this book just for the pastries and breads- not sure about the desserts recettes.
