    The book is amazing.  Forget the fancy pictures and the homespun warm and fuzzy.  This is after all a cookbook and a must for any serious baker. The book is not for the novice baker except for a few recipes.  Specialized equipment which will almost certainly have to be purchased as well as ingredients available only on line or baking specialty stores are the norm for this book. If these investments are made, the owner of Keller & Rouxel's recipes await. I was trained to make macarons at one of the most prestigious baking school's in the USA, but the results from Bouchon Bakery are far better both in taste, but also ease of making these finicky delights.  The signature Bouchons too are amazing, and these are easy to make as well.  The croissants seem easy in the book, but they are one of the most difficult pastries to make and they will requires LOTS of practice.  Again, I was taught to make croissants at that pastry school, but the results from Keller's book are incredible. Perhaps the reason for this is I was taught using professional equipment, Keller's recipes were refined using a home oven.  As the book says, be prepared to practice the various recipes over and over again to master the nuance of that particular formula.  There is an added bonus for these recipes, they can be doubled or halved with proper results.

    The actual book is excellent. Very classic techniques and I enjoy seeing a cook book that actually goes through the step by step instructions on poolish and sourdough starters just like most artisan bakers use. Excellent book. Well worth the money.

    Our baking "library" is already well stocked but SWEET

    Our baking "library" is already well stocked but SWEETTABLESCAPES just added the magnificent "Bouchon Bakery" to its shelves. And what an addition!

    We feel we MUST share our complete surrender to its gorgeous photography and fantastic recipes. With a friendly tone throughout, advice to professionals and amateurs alike, this book covers all of the baking basics and more. You will feel like trying every single recipe but...the author recommends: DO NOT jump from one to the next but repeat until you get it... because practice makes perfect. A piece of advice you'll find hard to follow given the tempting photos.
