William Curley

Patissier and chocolatier

This was one of the first cookbooks I ever bought and it helped inspire me to become a patissier. It covers a whole array of skills, methods and recipes. It is a must have book for any aspiring pastry chef. The Roux brothers have to be two of the most recognised chefs in the world. When I started my career, this was a bible to me.

Chef and author

I started off as a pastry chef and a dog eared copy of that book helped me blag my way through some dark times and appear like I knew what I was doing. It gets rid of a lot of the mystery behind high end patisserie.

For a long time this was the best pastry book available. Mine is covered in all sorts of butter/ chocolate and flour stains from over use .

Chintzy and garish throughout yet utterly indispensable as a young chef’s entry-level guide into the world of classic French patisserie

One of the best Patisserie books for chefs on the market. I still recommend it to all budding Pastry Chefs.

So good, complete. I used it a lot, and also know the brothers well, having I worked for them in the past.

Classics explained in absolute, painstaking detail. Worth the cover price for the croissant recipe alone.

Julian Carter

Head Baker

This is a classic eighties book, well used with the pages stuck together on the best recipes (cake porn).

Russell Brown

Russell Brown

Published in 1986 but still as relevant today, a book all about the classic recipes and craft skills.
