There’s a pink ribbon in the spine for bookmarking. Not every recipes has a photo but there are many beautiful photos in the book. A few of them actually made my mouth water. The recipes are easy to understand. I did see a few ingredients I was not familiar with such as liquid glucose, so am not sure where I would get those. I love that the recipes include cooking and prep time. I can’t wait to try a number of these recipes including the Strawberry Yoghurt Cheesecake, French Brulee Toast, Creme Brulee to end all Creme Brulees and Cinnamon Chocolate Souffle amongst others. This book would be great for anyone wishing for more dishes to bake.
