How many of you love éclairs? Ever since I was a kid, I loved when my mother allowed us to get éclairs in the store, or even better, made éclairs at home. Since they were a bit time consuming, my mother rarely made them, making it a true, delicious treat that all of us looked forward to during the summer (she preferred to cook them with less humidity). Since it was such a fickle recipe, I was always terrified to make éclairs at home and honestly never even attempted it as an adult. When I heard that one of my favorite publishers, Robert Rose, who is fantastic about making approachable cookbooks, came out with an éclair cookbook, I know I had to try it for myself. When the book arrived in the mail, I couldn’t wait to get into the book and start looking at all the fantastic recipes!

Éclairs: Easy, Elegant and Modern Recipes: Our Thoughts
As someone who truly LOVES éclairs, I couldn’t wait to get into this cookbook. As someone who had only had traditional éclairs, I was blown away by all the modern, very fun recipes, that sound absolutely delicious. To me, however, the best part is all the step by step instructions. The author (and chief) make preparing éclairs look easy and approaching, something that seemed truly amazing to me, especially since it seemed so complicated when I saw my mother making her own recipe growing up. Never had I thought making éclairs would be so approachable and now I can’t wait to try making them at home after seeing just approachable Chef Adam made all of his recipes. Based on our own experience, we are delighted to give Éclairs: Easy, Elegant and Modern Recipes an A+ rating and highly recommend it to anyone who loves baking!
