I am so admiring of this book that I am buying it for my sister-in-law, who like my self has a taste for the science of cooking combined with a sweet-tooth.

The author makes astute observations based on thorough research. Her explanations of the chemistry of pastry and desert making are easily understandable and helpful in producing delicious results.

Her recipes always include an extra step to create that extra special taste.

She is very enthusiastic about her subject and that provides a good counter balance to what sometimes feels a bit hyper-precise. Sometimes the amounts of the ingredients seem to work out to be a skosh on the scant side, but maybe I'm just greedy and my pie plates are too big. That said when I am using a recipe from another source I always check what "The Pie and Pastry Bible" might contribute to my information.
