E-galley received for review.

This was a cute little book with lovely photos of each recipe. The recipes themselves covered a variety of options from drinks to desserts and were simple yet stunning. I mention that simple does not mean easy as some were rather complex.

Some of the recipes I'd like to try are:

Sweet Squash Galette
Brandy Custard
Coconut Cream Truffles

Overall this was solid but not fabulous with some different kinds of recipes. It might be good for your own personal reference but I'd pass on giving it as a gift.
