Great book for inspiration. One of my favorite pastry chef's (and now Executive Chef/owner at P*ONG)who's strength is combining the sweet and savory. Some of the recipes are spot on, but others you'll have to play around with. Like most formulas, your ingredients may be different so that's to be expected.

I highly recommend the recipe for white chocolate green tea tart, only I substituted jasmine for green tea and dark chocolate for white.
