Exhaustive - but flawed Aug. 18 2012
By Terry Aley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Anyone who wants to be an upper tier pastry chef would be advised to purchase this book for the exhaustive photos and recipes. There's no better idea source for artistic inspiration than this book. Because of this, I have to give it 5 stars. What I don't like about this book is that probably the most interesting parts of these creations are the chocolate and pulled sugar decorations. That's why I bought the book. So of course I want to know how to make those. But each time I saw something I wanted to make, it referred me to page 308 where there is a basic sugar syrup recipe. And that's it. So I make the recipe, then what?? I realize it's a bit complicated, but even an overview would be appreciated. I have a general notion of how to make sugar art but I wanted insight on how each of those ornaments were made. There was thorough instruction on how to make the tuile ornaments, like the abstract wafer on the cover. If you want to tackle any of these recipes, you will need a lot of time, research and education. Unless you're already a gourmet pastry chef of the top level. Then this would be a good idea file. So if you're looking for nice photos of pulled sugar and chocolate, this is great. If you're looking for a manual on how to make pulled sugar ornaments, this won't work.

Just in Time for This Year's Olympic Fever June 21 2012
By Dee Long - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
We didn't know the extent ofthe many World and National Pastry Team Champtionships that existed prior to being introduced to this lovely volume, but each of the winners certainly deserves their well-deserved medals and laurel wreaths. The ingenuity and complexity of the desserts featured here are simply amazing. If the reader is up to the challenge of reproducing any of these stunning desserts in their own homes, detailed assembly instructions are provided, along with recipe directions in both grams and ounces. The desserts featured in Plating for Gold are sophisticated, minimalist,creative and in many cases one of a kind. So if you want to wow your guests with something more than creme brulee at your next party, Plating for Gold is for you!

great plated dessert book April 29 2013
By chefbrady12 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
THis is a great book, nothing in there is not to complicated to do, no crazy ingredients or techniques. Just the regular equipment, silicone pans, ice cream machine. Great detail on every dessert, plating illustrations, lots of pictures, great desserts in here. 30 bucks well spent, I have taken a couple of things out of here for my dessert menu as we speak

Very practical cook book, specially for our purposes in catering the final touch of a service. Jan. 3 2013
By Andrés Homero Arras Jurado - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Technically quite laborious, but easy to understand, and try them in our catering. We will try to apply . The recipes are clear and the ingredients (mostly) easy to find in our piece of earth, as well as the way the dessert is set up for plating, causing a whoau!.

This book helped me pass my finals in my first semester of pastry. Photos are beautiful & every recipe I tried was easy & looked great. If you do nothing but look att the plating you will love this book.
