Chef, food writer and broadcaster
This weighty doorstopper is an investment that feeds my weekend hobby of pastry and dessert making. Ducasse is a master and this book puts his artistry centre-stage. His assembly instructions read like architectural designs and come complete with structural diagrams and detailed photography. Recipes are seriously impressive, and even if many of the creations take ages to gently fold together, there something to be said for being challenged to make the cakes of my dreams.
