This book de-mystifies how to create these beautiful, elegant, and palate-pleasing desserts, which are easier to make than most people think.
The dessert recipes very easy to understand; directions are clear and unambiguous. There are plenty of things that can go wrong when making creme brulee, but Puente's recipes are simple enough for most anyone to make, and elegant enough to impress the elitist snob at your dinner party. The pictures are spectacular enough to make your mouth water at the site(nothing I hate more than a cookbook without pictures!)
From classic creme brulee to (my new favorite) Bananas Foster creme brulee, this book has a creme brulee recipe for any occasion.
My only gripe (and thus, deduction of one star) is the size. It's a very dainty book - for a dainty dessert - but is very small and hardbound which is impractical in the kitchen.

Yum....if you are on a quest to find the perfect creme brulee, order this book and try out some of the recipes included! From the basic custard with the crusty brown sugar top to a margarita creme brulee, this book has lots of recipes I'm dying to try. Great gift for your cooking (or gourmet dessert) friends.

All kinds of creme brulees. This is an outstanding cookbook on a one style of dessert and has many varieties and helps and serving suggestions. Favorite is the chocolate box presentation suggestion. Everyone seems to go for creme brulee!

It was a very good book that presents a number of fine examples on Creme Brulee. The photos are great, and the recipes seem easy enough to follow.
