Do you like eclairs? Of course, you do! I can remember my first attempt at making eclairs when I was about twelve. I walked to the grocery store to buy the ingredients with my babysitting money. They were not exactly pretty, but they tasted delicious. The new Eclairs book by Christophe Adam can help you make treats that look and taste wonderful. There are a total of 35 recipes. 15 of them are great for beginners. The others are best for intermediate or advanced cooks. What makes this book extra special is the photos. There are over 500 of them that demonstrate the step by step process for each recipe. This makes it easy to refer back to the book as you are working to end up with beautiful desserts.

Judging by my kids’ (and husband’s) reactions, éclairs are having a moment, eclipsing cupcakes, doughnuts, and other treats. And the amazing recipes shown here reveal why! Such vivid and delightful flavors and designs that are really the hit of any party. And yet, these colorful and cutting-edge confections are surprisingly simple and straightforward to make. Many use new ingredients that have only recently been made available at your average super store — candies, metallic shimmer dust, and more. The 20 recipes include unconventional and imaginative flavors, such as currants, apricot, pistachio, and passion fruit. With these basic recipes, and the educational (and fun!) techniques, one could imagine infinite variations. (SharingFoodFun.com 2017-02-17)
