Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Lanlard (Glamour Cakes; Home Bake), who owns London cake boutique Cake Boy, is an award-winning p√Ętissier who has made custom creations for Madonna and Elton John. His latest cookbook uses step-by-step photographs to illustrate techniques like making Brioche Pastry Dough and assembling an Apricot and Pistachio Pithivier Pie. The recipes range from traditional to exotic and are written with the assumption that readers will know things like how thinly pastry should be rolled and what temperature ingredients should be. VERDICT Like Eric Kayser's Sweet and Savory Tarts and Maury Rubin's Book of Tarts, this collection is best for advanced home bakers.
