Paris Patisseries: History, Shops, Recipes

This book is an absolute feast; no amount of decadence is spared. It’s a culmination of thinking, perceiving and adjusting throughout the centuries. What I love about this kind of pastry (truly an Art) is that all senses are involved, which makes it an experience from which Proustian memories are born. This in an invaluable resource on the best patisseries in Paris:  if you find yourself amongst case after glistening case you shall never want for inspiration or choice. The photographs and history through the book are awe inspiring, as are the recipes which are worthy of any repertoire. Absolutely Stunning!  Penelope B.
