This is a beautiful book, packed with gorgeous things to make, but also some very insightful information with regards to 'how to' and some of the science behind the baking. Also the stories from the people that work at the bakery are really quite touching, how they worked their way up and the obstacles they overcame on the way to the Bouchon Bakery. The recipes range from moderate to very complicated, not that it would be hard to make, but it would be hard to make them good, however as a normal everyday baker Mommy I will try these recipes and because of the writings from the bakers, I will try my best to make them as perfect as i can. The photography is also stunning. All in all this book is a little expensive, but after purchasing it I find that it is worth every penny, if I could congratulate all the people involved in this book, then i sure would !!
