There have been countless tomes on the art of French patisserie by sources more classically trained than Mr. Kimber. But his distance from the canon may be an asset here. Instead of toeing the line on technique, he respectfully streamlines recipes, simplifying in the name of ease while preserving the essence of any dessert. Although Mr. Kimber's pastries are the kinds of classics you'd see in patisseries all over France (think lemon tarts, éclairs, almond croissants), the book manages to present them in ways that breathe new life into the old standbys. (Melissa Clark The New York Times)

Patisserie Made Simple offers a focus on French desserts and pastries that are surprisingly easy for beginners to make, and covers a range of cookies, pastries, breads and more. Most French pastry cookbooks are far too complicated for novices, and most assume a good degree of prior pastry-making knowledge, so it's delightful to find a simpler step-by-step guide made for newcomers that pairs easy instructions with coverage of basic techniques. (Diane Donovan, Senior Reviewer Midwest Book Review, March 2016)
