Review:
This book covers classic French Pastries in a easy to understand format. There are many photos to aid the written directions which is always a help. Just like a following a rout to a destination there are many ways to get there and each master baker will give their own techniques; along the way each cook finds what works in his/her kitchen and style. The book first lays out the basic recipes and then combines the recipes in different ways to produce Various classics. To me it is an excellent guide to some fine pastries.
