Rick Rodger's "Kaffeehaus"

Any recent baking from this book? I've made the Ischl Tartlets several more times. They are delicious and always a hit. I haven't even moved past this recipe, I like them so much. As I mentioned before, I decrease the liquids in the chocolate glaze by 1/2. This prevents cracking from occurring later on.

Ludja -- did you try the Indianerkrapfen again? I was thinking about making those after buying a new non-stick abelskiver pan (my current one is cast iron and everything sticks).

I'm also interested in the Gerbeaud Slices. This wouldn't necessarily be a recipe I'd pick on my own, but I've heard so many good things about the originals.

As part of my Christmas baking, I made the chestnut "potatoes" confection. Not receommended. They took an inordinate amount of time to make, most in peeling the nuts, and the result was very bland.

The vanilla crescents were a hit last year at Christmas, but for some reason did not come out as well this year.

This reminded me that I tried the Vanilla Crescents last week. Kind of disappointing and not worth making again. I also made the Krapfen a while ago, but the results paled compared to the Sufganiyot recipe I use (from Martha Stewart Living, no less!).

Thanks for the food porn! This has definately caught my attention. Too bad the recipes are volumetric though.

I have added this book to my Amazon wish list.

I can't for the life of me seem to find an errata sheet on this book (the link posted earlier in this thread comes up being not found)

I have this book and so far have really enjoyed it but if there are mistakes in the book I would like to find the corrections for them.

      What would you like to be included in a cookbook you classify as a "good cookbook"?

      Other than the three written by Michael Ruhlman, which I have read and loved, what other books are out there that are about cooking, but not cookbooks?

      I just received a copy of "The Cook's Book - Concise Edition" edited by Jill Norman, and now I'm curious, what's the difference to the full edition? Supposedly it has 648 pages compared to 496 in this edition, and it appears to be much larger in size if the info on us.dk.com is correct. Other than that I can't find any info what the difference might be. It's a neat book with lots of photos about techniques etc, and lots of recipes. As with any DK book production values are high.
      If the contents are the same, I'm happy with the smaller version, but I'd really like to know what I might be missing on those 150 or so pages. If it's just filler, I don't care. If it's some fantastic recipes, I do care....
      Anybody here know both editions? Google was so far of no help. Lots of the full edition are to be had used as well, I'd be happy giving this one as a gift and ordering the full edition, if it's worth it.
      Thanks!

      Say you were rounded up with a group of folks and either had a skill to offer in exchange for a comfy room and some other niceties or were sent off to a slag heap to toil away in the hot sun every day for 16 hours, what 3 books would you want to take with you to enable you to cook and bake such fabulous foodstuffs that your kidnappers would keep you over some poor schlub who could cook only beans and rice and the occasional dry biscuit?

      I am interested in getting some cookbooks that cover the basics of pastry and baking--not bread, necessarily, but dessert, cakes, cookies, etc. I searched a few other cookbook threads but did not have luck on finding books on pastry.
      My interest is in fairly classic French and European style baking, and I need a book that covers technique. Pictures would also be much appreciated--I like both the step by step pix or great pictures of the end product.
      Right now, I have Desserts and Chocolate Desserts by Pierre Herme. (I love these and have had good results from the recipes, but feel I should start with a more classic approach.) La Varenne Pratique has provided some good starting points, but I would like to find a book with more focus on baking.
      I was thinking about the Payard book. Any comments? Suggestions would be much appreciated! In case it applies, I am a home cook and am slightly more skilled than a total beginner.
      Thanks!
