Customer reviews

By Sharon Robertson 18 Dec 2012 5

Darren Purchese is a master dessert chef, and this book contains absolutely amazing creations. While at first the book seems quite daunting (most recipes contain at least 8 different elements), with a bit of time, patience and dedication you caould replicate many of his creations by preparing only a few of the elements at a time (and freezing til they are needed).
And if you don't want to make anything out of it, just reading through it is a delight anyway.
I work across the road from his cake shop (Burch & Purchese Sweet Studio) in Chapel Street, and have tasted many of his creations. They are every bit as fabulous as they look! This book is HIGHLY recommended.
