    1. This is the ultimate recipe book for a French patisserie fanatic. Even if I never make anything from it, I'll be happy to have it sitting on my bookshelf, reminding me of the very delicious cakes and macarons I've bought at Pierre Hermé's chic boutique in rue Bonaparte in Paris. *sigh* And, as it happens, it won't just be sitting on my bookshelf. I'll be baking plenty of things using this book, starting this weekend. Anyone who's interested in this book should make sure that they get the revise [...]

    2. What to say about this book? First, it is gorgeous - heavy, coffee table quality, gorgeous photos. Unfortunately, no matter how beautiful it is, in the final analysis it is a cookbook, and as a cookbook it needs a LOT of work. It is scattered with errors in measurements and instructions, to the point where I would not recommend this for beginners and advise even advanced cooks to double and triple check all measurements. Pierre Herme is a master, and I find that the cookbooks that he wrote with [...]

    3. Tried a few recipes from this book so far. Coffee tart was gorgeous! One of the best tarts ever had/made. Although I changed the amount of a couple of ingredients. However, I believe that taste is very depends on people's desire (sweeter or less sweet, stronger or weaker etc). So as long as the consistency is correct or good, a few little changes is fine. Anyway, buy i agree this cookbook is more for an advanced cook rather than beginners.

    4. The best croissant recipe I've ever tried to make. And the photography alone makes it worth the purchase.
