Good recipes, bad for the beginner...
on January 28, 2003
I purchased this book as one my first to learn about the art of candymaking, before I really made much.
I got it, read through it and found the recipes looked tasty but were seemed to assume some degree of expertise despire the attempts to lay out the basics early in the book.
I ended up setting it aside in favor of other books to help me learn the art.
Now that I'm more familiar with "the art", I've gone back to this book and made a handful of the recipes with extreme success.
In short, a good book for your collection, but not the place to start.
