I made the Mushroom and Shallot Quiche which was absolutely divine and so very classic. Even though I had a bit of a disaster with the Mini Raspberry Galettes, the flavour was absolutely delicious. The Chocolate Mousse Tart with Hazelnuts was a dream and even though the Vegetable Tartlets were a bit of a logistic nightmare to eat, they were surprisingly tasty. The Strawberry-Rhubarb Pielets almost drove me to madness but again, the flavours were perfection.
There is a stunning and classic Martha-esque photo for every recipe that makes your mouth water and truly is eye candy. At the back you will find a ton of helpful techniques on making pies and tarts, plus so much information about ingredients. From poached apple roses to candied lemon slices, there is so much to explore even when it comes to garnishes.
I do feel that if I was to keep just one book about pies and tarts on my bookcase of cookbooks, this is is the one I would choose. I do wish there was more visual instruction for some of the techniques within the recipes themselves because what I was supposed to do was not always clear but overall, I loved this cookbook and will cherish it.
In typical Martha style, the books' pages brim with both stunning photographs of each finished treat and helpful how-to information on decorating techniques, packaging and presentation. The back of each book focuses on basics including general baking tips and techniques as well as advice on ingredients and equipment. She also includes recipes for "extras" such as sauces and garnishes (coulis, creme anglaise, sugared fruit, chocolate-covered mint leaves etc).
"Cupcakes," the most impressive of the three books, spotlights the perfect cupcake for every occasion. Swirled and sprinkled, dipped and glazed, Stewart proves that these diminutive cakes can become both showstoppers for special occasions and everyday treats. Alongside traditional favorites like yellow buttermilk cupcakes with fluffy vanilla frosting and devil’s food cupcakes crowned with dark chocolate buttercream, she presents sweet surprises such as peanut butter and jelly cupcakes, dainty delights like tiny almond-cherry tea cakes, and festive centrepieces topped with marizpan ladybugs or candy clowns.
"New Pies & Tarts" likewise contains classics such as pecan, pumpkin and apple but also the more exotic Vanilla Bean-Pineapple Tart and Persimmon Tartlets with Caramel Cream.Read more ›
