Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Rice tart imperatrice

    • Melanie on May 29, 2014

      I made this recipe because I had the ingredients at hand and it looked interesting - it's a rice pudding tart with peppered strawberries to decorate. I thought this was ok - preferred the base to the topping - but would make alterations if trying again.

  • Lemon cream

    • Melanie on May 29, 2014

      This lemon cream is perfect - will make again despite the effort required.

  • Sweet tart dough

    • Melanie on May 29, 2014

      This dough is pretty much perfection. Instructions are detailed. Makes enough dough for 3-4 tarts, excess pastry can be frozen for later use.

  • French toast with blueberry sauce

    • metacritic on January 08, 2022

      Fantastic (and pretty complex) rendition of French toast. The whole composed dish works gorgeously. The individual parts are terrific, too, and I love the addition of orange flower water to a classic French toast recipe.

  • Chocolate-nut loaf

    • ashallen on August 11, 2019

      I didn't care for this cake. The texture was on the dry side - I'd underbake it as much as possible were I to make it again. The chocolate flavor was too mild (for me). The recipe does not call for salt - I added 1/4 tsp and it still didn't seem sufficient. And the nuts had an unpleasantly chewy texture.
