From Library Journal:
Bloom, author of the excellent Truffles, Candies & Confections (LJ 8/92) and a cooking teacher, has compiled an impressive reference work that covers more than 800 international pastry and confectionery ingredients, terms, and equipment. Interspersed throughout the dictionary entries are recipes for luscious, predominantly classic European pastries, such as Paris-Brest and Bittersweet Chocolate Mousse Cake, highlighting essential baking and candy-making techniques. Also included are numerous useful charts and tables, a source guide for ingredients and equipment, and a worldwide listing of schools offering courses in pastry making and confectionery. Bloom's exhaustive research and the broad scope of her dictionary make it a valuable resource for pastry professionals, candy makers, and home bakers alike. Highly recommended.
