from the publisher

Desserts have been a lifelong passion for Michel Roux and he is widely regarded as an authority on them. Here he takes a fresh new look at the whole subject, presenting updated great classics and mouthwatering contemporary recipes, inspired by his travels and designed to suit today's fresher, lighter palate. Each chapter focuses on a particular type of dessert from simple fruit ideas, hot souffles and puddings, ice creams and sorbets - through meringues, mousses and parfaits - to delectable tarts, pastries and gateaux. Step-by-step recipes guide you through specific techniques throughout. Creative, diverse and lavishly illustrated, this superb collection of over 120 recipes includes desserts for all seasons and to suit all occasions.

I've always been fascinated by the 'magic' of desserts. I would look through this book and try to understand all the different sponge and mousse techniques or just stare at some of the creations with in the book
