Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Salted butter caramel sauce

    • stef on February 12, 2024

      Good step by step instructions. Flakey salt is used.

  • Classic pie dough

    • stef on July 30, 2023

      The pie dough was easy to work with. Baked up buttery and flaky

  • Bacon, beer & mushroom quiche

    • stef on August 22, 2023

      This is a very good quiche which takes a little longer to make. A mirepox of onion, grated carrot and onion is sauted and them simmered in wheat beer. This is spread at the bottom of partially baked tart. Bacon and cheese is sprinkled on top and cream and egg poured over. I made Anna's classic pie dough. We loved it and will repeat.

  • Basque cheesecake (burnt cheesecake)

    • stef on February 12, 2024

      A decadent cheesecake. So creamy and smooth. Very clear instructions. Took 60 minutes to bake.

  • Milk chocolate orange mousse

    • lkgrover on July 24, 2023

      Excellent, smooth chocolate-orange mousse (or American-style pudding?) I decreased the orange liqueur to 1 tsp for a mere hint of liqueur.
