But oh god, some of the desserts in here not only look fabulous, but creative - baklava cheesecake? sign me up!
Edit - I sat for half an afternoon just pouring over this. I'm ashamed to say I might make 2 recipes out of the book (I have to make that cheesecake one of these days...and the chocolate pound cake looks tasty!)...but it doesn't make it any less eye-candy for the appetite!
The recipes in the book are not only beautifully illustrated but the author is very informative in sections of the how to by giving techniques and equipment to use. A great addition to the cookbooks I already have. There were many great desserts that will have your mouth watering before they are even done.
