I received this book as a Christmas gift,and I was so excited! It is a great book on the fundamentals of classic French Pastry,written by some of the best Pastry Chefs in the World (Jacques Torres,Jacques Pepin and others.) I am presently enrolled in Pastry School and it is helping me in my studies immensely as it is structured like a pastry class and has 'chefs tips' to help out for each recipe. Highly recommended for the budding Pastry Chef or home baker who wants to truly learn the craft of classic French Patisserie! Bon Appetit!
