Customer Review

on 16 September 2011
I tend to steer clear of recipe books with a single genre pies, macarons, bread etc) as I often found that, only one or two recipes appeal to me. This is NOT the case with Pieminister. I mainly went for it because I'm a fan of the moo pie and was hoping to get the recipe (it's not here, in case you're wondering, however an adaptation is). Spurred on by the many positive reviews I broke my rule and went for it. How glad am I! The book begins with recipes for short, rough puff, suet, sour cream and sweet pastry - even giving suggestions for using the scraps, in a real 'waste-not-want-not' air. They (very sensibly) admit that puff and filo should be left to the professionals. The book is then subdivided into pie recipes using seasonal ingredients (savoury and sweet) and ends with accompaniments recipes for both. I was inspired by the ernest writing and anecdotes. There are many recipes I cannot wait to try. The instruction is clear enough to be informative, yet laid-back enough to allow you to make your own adjustments. I jumped up and made the rough puff, for the first time, as soon I put the book down: please note that I have struggled normally with even easy shortcrust pastry. They say a picture is worth a thousand words so I've uploaded a picture. I will tell you, it tasted even better!
