The recipes in this book seem very interesting to me. They also seem kind of complex to me, I think only because I am used to dealing with different kinds of equipment and ingredients when I bake. I am sure once I got used to making the recipes in this book that making them probably wouldn't seem like they would be so complex. I like how there is a short section on icings, streusels, and fillings and how it speaks about how these are important to a baker, I also liked that recipes were included specially for these items. I do think there are a lot of recipes that people can make at home in this book but I think that they focus a lot more on larger recipes that are made in bakeries. It was great to see variations listed after recipes to substitute different ingredients, to give the same pastry products a different taste.
There are no pictures of the recipes throughout any place of the book that I noticed, I got to thinking that maybe that was because the recipes were retrieved after George's death and he wasn't there to make the recipes to take pictures of in this book. I am glad that these recipes were retrieved and I hope to try to learn how to make some of them in the near future. I think they will definitely help people that like to cook dessert items to grow to another level of baking!
My review= 5 out of 5 stars
