Reviews for Laduree
Beautiful Little Book
This is the eponymously-titled dessert book from the Laduree Patisserie in Paris, France.
The book is packaged in Laduree's trademark pastel green box and looks like a box of macarons from the famed patisserie. Packaging and presentation are this boutique bakery's strong point.
The book lies in its box wrapped carefully in a layer of delicate lavender tissue and in between its green pastel velveteen (!) cover lies an enchanted collection of eye-candy dessert recipes. So typically Laduree and so typically Parisian.
This edition is published in Great Britain by Scriptum Editions and is in English so don't worry, sweet-toothed English-only readers rejoice, you won't need to translate. There is another edition available so make sure you are purchasing the correct edition for your needs.
There are more than just macaron recipes in this book. There are eclairs and tarts and page after page of glorious Parisian goodies but keep in mind that rustic French Country baking this is not. It's creams, glazes, custards and delicate, pretty pastries all the way. There is even a chapter devoted to fancy drinks that one might expect from the Laduree menu.
This book would make a perfect gift for anyone longing for a souvenir of the sweet-laden windows of the Laduree salons or for someone who appreciates their desserts delicate, chic and quintessentially European.
Beautiful photography, beautiful packaging. One only hopes the recipes will hold up to the book's presentation.
5 Stars for presentation. Stay tuned for a review update on the recipes. by CakeAddict
