i made hundreds of wedding cakes for a living. i slaved on thousands of cheesecakes, millions of layer cakes, and boatloads of brownies.

this is one of the VERY few cookbooks i have ever used in which the recipes can be made, in most cases, "by the book". most cookbooks do not give complete instructions, and most recipes if made exactly according to the book, seem to "need" something. This one hits everything right on the mark with bright, clean flavors, clear instructions, easy-to-procure ingredients (no peeky toe crab! ) and GOOD for your health components that actually taste wonderful.
