I really really love this cookbook. I have made quite a few recipes from it (apricot upside down cake, brownies, blondies, madeleines, banana bread, egg yolk cookies, etc.) and have found them all to be delicious. Each baked good I have made feels unique and high quality. It is a beautiful book and my go-to when I want to make a special, crowd-pleasing dessert. I am glad weights are included along with volumes; I think this is the reason my results have always been successful. Lovely book: tasty recipes, delicate and sweet photography, all-around amazing.-Natt
I love this book! There is great story behind the journey of Claire Ptak and the making of Violet Bakery! I learned about Claire and the bakery after the royal wedding and boy am I glad I did. I've learned a lot about the importance of picking and using the best ingredients from reading this book. I'm glad Claire has a background from Chez Panisse because her experiences there and afterward, shared with me, makes me a better baker!-Bibliophile
