One of these days I'm going to try making brioche, cream puffs and eclairs, but it probably won't be with the help of this book. It's an exahustive compendium of recipes for French sweets, but only experienced bakers need apply. Instructions are minimal and there are no iillustrations of technique. Many of the recipes require specialized ingredients and some specialized equipment (which you only discover when the directions tell you to generously butter a charlotte mold or a mini tart pan). It does have beautiful photographs of many of the finished recipes. ( )
