  1. mearl

    Absolutely fabulous for the keen baker.

  2. Kate

    First of all, I want to make it clear this is a good book. The recipes are well chosen and well laid-out, clearly written and some of them are nicely illustrated using a step-by-step process. There’s a fairly wide range of sweet bakes included, mostly from French and English traditions (and a few Italian and German). It also has a good selection of basic techniques and recipes in the back, including instructions for how to make the most common pastries, fillings and the like. If you’re interested in advancing your home baking past basic cakes, this is a beautiful book that will help you do that.

    I’ve got two critiques: one minor, one major. The minor: The recipes are of French origin, from a French cookbook heritage, but do not include the French names! (Except for a few like finansiers, which are known in English by their French names.) That would have been nice information to have, though obviously I can find it out by other means. The major critique is that while the book blurb promises patisserie and fancy cakes, in practice most of the book is very simple, and most of the ‘patisserie’ is small tarts with simple fillings. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it’s a much smaller and simpler treatment of the topic than I was hoping for, especially in comparison to how many plain cakes featured. It’s not nearly the complete treatment promised by the book’s description.

    It’s really gift, it worth overzizely every cent of its price. A lot of recipes and they’re all very tasty, very nice pictures for every recipe that you can use as a guide of the look of your final work.

    I couldn’t resist this bargain at 99p for the kindle version. Downloaded to iPad and it’s visually stunning. It’s absolutely packed with colour photos ( over 1500) and many recipes have detailed picture instructions.

    I have a well thumbed hard copy of the Larousse Encyclopaedia of cooking, which for decades was considered the bible of cookery. Things have moved on since that was published and there are now many volumes which are used to train professional chefs. They’re expensive, usually around £40, so unless you’re rich or really need them, they’re something of a luxury. So this e version of the Larousse cakes and pastries book at 99p is a delight in every way.

    If you’ve never cooked before, this will guide the novice through every bit of equipment (spoons, knives, mixers, whisks etc) that you need. Along with guide to different ingredients like flour, egg, sugars and so on. I found those sections interesting even though I’ve been home cooking for decades!

    The recipes are really clear. Every step is detailed and given that it’s Larousse, there are some complicated creations, but with the guidance so clearly set out, it’s tempting and encouraging to try out new dishes. Sections are separate fir cakes, pastries, desserts etc, with a comprehensive index. Absolutely love this book, even though I eat very few cakes! Very highly recommended.

    The book is just not worthy. Don’t waste your money.

  6. Yman

    Świetna pozycja dla kogoś, kto chce nauczyć się właściwych podstaw, dla zaawansowanych raczej się nie przyda.
    Mimo, że książka jest z pod znaku Larousse, jest inaczej zbudowana niż oryginalny Gastronomique.

    Ogólnie ode mnie 5 gwizdek, za merytoryke i wykonanie.

  7. Mrs. D. Lott

  8. Branka Šesto

  9. Flossie9

    Bought for my grandson as a Christmas present.

  10. not me

    I love to push myself in the kitchen and try things I’ve never attempted before. I can’t guarantee that I will be any good, but I guarantee that I will try my best, no matter how disastrous the outcome!

    I can’t wait to dive into this book and make my kitchen messy!
