Reviews for Laduree: Sucre The Recipes
A really great book for all!
When i first bought the book i was sure im going to get a very difficult book with annoying measurments and hard to get ingrediants but it was the exact opposite- the book is beautifuly set with vivid images and easy to follow recipes with the familiar cups measurment and grams, to youre choice.
The recipes are great- made me feel a tad French :) by Yishai

What an amazing little book. I just received it in the mail this afternoon and I can already tell that no uni work is going to be completed tonight. Lovely photographs, although a tad girly in style- think Ralph Lauren quilts- however, this does make it quite unique compared to other pastry books. Luckily for me (being in Australia) all of the recipes are in metric units of measurement (g-kg,ml-L,cups), although even if you were using imperial measurements the very last page of the book has the conversions (you wont need to search for the page- it is very thoughtfully placed).
I love a challenge, but at the end of the day if I want to take a cake somewhere I want to know that I can successfully make it; the recipes are easy to follow and have storage instructions. The book isn't full of complicated recipes, some are just beautiful flavour combinations rendered in an appropriate medium. For example (a very simple recipe but would marry well with almost any cake in the book): A very simple recipe for a Triple Citrus Infusion tea can be found on page. 350 containing 1xlemon, 1xlime, 1xorange, water and orange flower water.
There are more time consuming recipes & some that contain lots of ingredients, conversely there are also minimalist and quick recipes (Long & complicated chocolate cake recipe, short & easy chocolate cake recipe). Thank you.
