In 5 words:
Dessert, sugar, butter, advanced and special.
Index, recipes photos, recipe example, step by step recipes:
Easy to find ingredients:
Easy to follow recipes:
Design is great, photography is beautiful, recipes are for advanced home bakers, ingredients are easy to find and recipes are well explained. Some recipes have step by step photos too.
Time: It is a traditional recipe book, and by traditional I mean that pastry to make croissant is 100% handmade so recipes are long and take time. Perfect to enjoy baking any of the recipes on a rainy Sunday.
There are lots of special recipes, spelt croissant or speculoos babka for example, classic recipes but with a twist.
Recipes are classic baking style recipes so expect lots of sugar, flour and butter.
Tips: Most of the recipes include tips at the end of the recipe/page. Thank you for that.
