I highly recommend this book. It was helpful in learning much, much more about baking and pastries. The only thing as a home cook that I struggle with is some of the recipes are for more than you can cook at home. More for commercial use which is okay you just have to do the math to get the recipes down to a size that will fit in your home mixer. Great book though! I am enjoying it!

it is really a good book as a gift, I presented it to my niece. she is 12 years old and she was very-very happy to receive it. I know that she uses it, if 12 year old can use it than anyone can use.
