Additional Details

Description: Something makes you thrill to see a familiar object such as a windmill or a star scaled down to an unusually small size. Before you eat a miniature, you fall in love with it. After all, it's yours. Who would dare ask you to share something so small and perfect? California chef and restaurant owner Jeremiah Tower summed up the lure of miniatures brilliantly: "They are the dollhouse of architecture, the Faberge eggs of jewelry, and the tin soldiers of the playroom." 

Sweet Miniatures cookbook is the only collection of miniature recipes written by the renowned authority on the subject. This cookbook finally shows you how to make those dazzling creations passed around at fancy parties or served with the coffee in three-star Paris restaurants or sold only at the best bakeries. It will also enable you to add an exciting difference to a family dinner, an important party, a wedding, or an anniversary. Finally, Sweet Miniatures is an indispensable book for anyone who caters or who owns a bakery or restaurant.
