A cookbook review
Right now I am receiving quite a few cookbooks for review so you will probably see some of them here now and then. That is if I like them because I only review books that I like here. I have no ads on the blog but I do get free cookbooks and books and as I almost always receive nice books I am very happy to get them. Some of them would have passed me by like this The Sweet Melissa Baking Book. Recipes from the Beloved Bakery for Everyone’s Favorite Treats by Melissa Murphy, the owner and chef of Sweet Melissa’s Patisseries in Brooklyn. Now if I had to choose one type of cooking, like if someone pointed a gun to my head and said “Choose!” I would choose to baking and desserts so I obviously said ‘yes please’ when I was asked to review this book, without knowing anything whatever about the Sweet Melissa’s Patisseries. And I don’t regret it, no not at all even if this is a cookbook for an American audience which means I can’t get some of the ingredients here where I live but still it’s full of recipes that I can make, I have made and I will make! In the photos you can see the few remnants of the waffles I made last weekend, they disappeared so quickly that these waffle hearts were the only thing left to photograph. The book is full of anecdotes introducing the recipes which makes it a pleasant reading. And there are so many recipes in it that I have to try, I just hope that I will have enough time to do it soon. The only thing I miss are more photos, and I think that they could have printed the photos in the book with more attention to the colours.
