Book Review: Three French Hens, Two Macarons, and Lovers in a Bakery

Thursday, January 30, 2014

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial in exchange for a honest review.  

I've really tried to love this book since I was so intrigued by the title and by the beautiful cover, unfortunately the story was a big let down. I was really looking forward to the love story and I couldn't love the story at all, I couldn't connect to the characters, the story at times just seemed totally unreal, bizarre and out of place.

The only aspect I loved about the book, it's the fact that it comes with thirty indulgent french dessert recipes and photos even though they're black & white (*print version*, not digital). A recipe is mentioned in every chapter and by the end of each chapter you can find the recipe and photo. I love when books incorporate recipes with the story and when it works together becomes beautiful but in this case, I'm afraid only the recipes worked, not the story.

Here are some of the recipes in the book:
Blackberry Financiers
Charlotte a la Framboise (Raspberry Charlotte)
La Buche de Noel (Yule Log)
Tarte a la Citrouille (French Pumpkin Pie)
Croquembouche (Caramel Glazed Cream Puffs)
Cassis Macarons (Black Currant Macarons)
Upside Down Apple Tart
Creme Brûlée
and more!

I guess I'll be keeping this book for the delicious and perfect French recipes!
