It explains a lot of different techniques and has plenty of recipes to keep you occupied for months.
Only negative point that I have about this book is that many of the recipes are in rather large quantities which makes it a little less convenient for home bakers who just want to make 1 batch of a certain thing.
2. The recipes are for huge amounts of food (i.e 6 8” cakes!) For a home baker, you will have to divide some of these recipes into thirds and quarters or more. Not really what I was expecting.
I am confident that this will be my new go-to book for any and all desserts I wish to make in the future. Now, I can't wait to get my hands on the CIA's complete collection of culinary books.
