While this book is excellent and the recipes, though long, are usually easy to follow, they can still be difficult and I would recommend that a beginner start with an easier, more basic book. More advanced bakers, however, should love this book. While it concentrates on pies and tarts of all kinds, Ms. Heatter also details cobblers and crumbles, custards and glaces and much, much more. She also gives us practical advice, such as the correct way to wash fruit, etc. Real pie baking is an art, so be prepared to put a lot of time and effort into these recipes. It will be time and effort very well spent. I, myself would have preferred illustrations of some of these delicious concoctions.
