I am so conflicted about rating this cookbook.
This is one of those times I wish there was a way to rate the content separate from the format. It's a five start cookbook with five star writing and photos in a two star layout.

Though it's not my typical style, I dearly love this cookbook. While I do wish it had MANY more pictures, I can't help but love all the unique and delicious sounding recipes. They do all seem like quite a bit of work (or at least the ones I'm particularly interested in), but it would be a nice cookbook to have on hand for when you're feeling ambitious.

Four and a half stars though I haven't made anything from it. I copied a modest four recipes and can't wait to try them. The book is lovely. The layout fantastic. It is well put together and I trust it sight unseen. Or, taste untasted.

Baking from it monthly with ABC Bakers. So far I really like it. Instructions are very clear and very describing. This books works and not only with US flours. (which is a major review point in my book)

Too fussy and pretentious.
