Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This is the third in Stewart's Food & Entertaining series, following Entertaining and Hors d'Oeuvres, written in the informal, conversational style that attracts her readers and may assure them they can achieve the results displayed in Galton's photos. The author is a professional caterer and columnist for House Beautiful, and the elegant creations here bespeak learned skills, inventiveness and enthusiasm. Perfectly reproduced color pictures focus on pies, tarts and tartlets made from fruits (including the citrus types), berries, nuts, chocolate, vegetables. These ingredients are elaborately decorated, some baked in heart-shaped or other unconventional pans, most as rich as Croesus and a treat for the eyes as well as the palate. Stewart's instructions are complete, unmistakably clear and illustrated each step of the way. Still, a kitchen neophyte would probably be frustrated by attempts to make the Concord grape pie, garnished by a grape cluster, leaves and tendrilsall made of pastry; or a swirling, white-and-dark chocolate masterpiece surrounded by hand-fashioned chocolate leaves. The book is outstanding, and it should appeal strongly to people experienced in the art of fine cooking. December 2

I enjoyed this book very much. The recipes were so easy to follow and I liked all the side notes that Martha included to help you appreciate and learn more about making great pies and tarts. I started with the more simple recipes to test the various crusts. The crusts, infact, have their own section which helped me to learn and compare each type of crust. Once I was comfortable with that I moved on to the more challenging and more creative recipes with great success. I think if you follow the instructions that are provided, each with great pictures, you'll have much fun creating these delicious pieces of art.
