About the Author
Jill thought patisserie and macarons were hard to make when she first moved to France, after she fell in love with a Frenchman in her native Scotland. Making the move to Paris in 1993, Jill couldn't speak much French and had never needed to entertain before. Realising her banana surprise with custard from a packet mix was not going to hack it with her French dinner guests, she needed to improve her culinary skills tout de suite in order to impress. Over the years she has gained confidence by learning cookery tricks from her French friends and family. As a busy working mum, Jill began to make patisserie as a hobby - partly as a challenge, and partly for her budget. Calling herself a "lazy gourmet", she loves exploring ways to make impressive-looking treats without spending too much time or money on them, while keeping the authenticity of pastry's exquisite taste. Previously a professional musician, Jill continues to enjoy playing flute and piano and also conducts chocolate shop and patisserie walking tours around St Germain des Pres in Paris.

This book is also fun in that it’s a bit of a travel book – a sort of walking tour of some wonderful looking patisseries in Paris. The author lives in Paris and gives walking tours of patisseries throughout Paris. Can you imagine? That would be such incredible fun! As I read this, I had fond memories of our trip to Paris several years ago, and gosh, it makes me want to visit there again! This book is a gorgeous visual feast and would be a lovely gift for those who enjoy baking.
P.S. My 10 yo daughter can't wait to try her hand at the pistachio and cherry kirsch choux puffs!
