Éclairs: Easy, Elegant and Modern Recipes Cookbook Review

Posted on Feb 4 2017 - 9:21pm by Susan Bewley

Are you someone who loves delicious desserts? See what we think of our latest cookbook, Éclairs: Easy, Elegant and Modern Recipes, here!

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: What is It?

Do you want to learn how to make éclairs at home? If so, we think you will love Éclairs: Easy, Elegant and Modern Recipes by Christophe Adam. This fun cookbook has fantastic, unique recipes and amazing step by step pictures that make baking éclairs at home easy! See what the publisher has to say about this amazing new cookbook.

The newest darling in the world of baking — the classic French pastry has been embraced by a whole new generation of bakers.

Making this classic at home is much easier than you think. And it’s made easy by the fact that it’s written by one of Europe’s top pastry chefs, Christophe Adam. With its straightforward approach, full color pages and hundreds of step-by-step photos, it’s as though Christophe were by your side giving you a lesson in your home kitchen.

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!

    My aunt used to make homemade eclairs when I was little. When I was big enough, she would let me fill them with the pudding. She always made them with vanilla pudding in the middle and chocolate frosting.

    This looks like a great book for making eclairs the first time and they look so delicious on the cover too. My daughter would love it if I were to make these at home rather than buying them from the bakery.

    We love eclairs! They were not only good, but fun to eat!! Sometimes the kids would have races to see who would lick all the cream out of the middle first!
    I have never made them before or even thought about it. If I did make them, it’ll be the first for our family!
    So I pinned the recipes to surprise the family one day with some homemade goodies! 😋

    As a child, I always thought an eclair was a special treat. I still do. I imagine home made are great.

    Growing up, we went to town and bought chocolate eclairs ea. weekend. They were so good. I would have never thought of a whole book on them. I will have to tell my sister about this book. I know she will want it.

    I have never made eclairs–only bought from a bakery. After reading this I might just try it myself.
