Great book, but............
By Purse fanatic
from Toronto, Canada
I purchased both the garnish set as well as this book thinking they would go hand in hand. And they would, except for the fact that the majority of the recipes mention the use of a "V" shaped tool that isn't included in the garnish tool set that is being sold. I think that's a huge issue since it's not just the odd recipe that requires it. Otherwise, it's a great book if you're just looking for ideas, which is why I would still recommend it.
Easy to do recipes!!!!
By wife of gajit man
from Hamilton Ontario
This book is filled with alot of down to earth usable recipes. I have made so many so far and have plans to make several more. They use all of the wonderful tools I received with it. A definite must have!!!
LOVE THIS BOOK!
I really love this book and am very glad I ordered it! It is an excellent refresher course on all the demonstrations that Marian Getz showed on the showstopper Garnish Set [which I also purchased!] It shows the garnishes in detailed picture form and walks you through the steps to achieve Marian's results. If you buy the tool set, you need this book!!
Very attractive & well presented
Illustrations elegantly presented and simplistic.I like the index and explanations of all the tools in the set - very useful to some of us who are not up on kitchen tools, and ways to use them.Print is right size so I do not have to squint.

a bit disappointing overall
from St. John's (Newfoundland and Labrador)
It's fine. Some nice examples for garnishing, but for me the recipes that suggest how to utilize the tools are a bit of a stretch. I'd have preferred to have gotten more garnish ideas and less recipes.... I thought that's what the book was for. ALSO..... just a quality issue: the first page with print on it is really faded.... like a poor print job. (I ordered 2 and it's the same on both) Plus.... the layout is a little 'so so'. It looks like it was put together in a big hurry in order to meet a print deadline. Sorry, but that's how I see it.) I'm keeping them because there are a few cute ideas, and one of them is a gift to go with a garnish set.

A little disappointed
more recipes than actual designs - I was expecting more ways of using the tools vs recipes. The recipes are good but when a person expects more uses for the tools it can be very disappointing. I'm keeping the book as I will still be able to use it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Not what I expected...
from Fort Frances, Ontario
The recipes in this book are really good. They are simple and explicitly tell you what tools to use, from Wolfgang's utensil set. I was expecting more garnish ideas though, and this book does not deliver well. The creations presented are kind of childish looking. I was looking for some ideas to garnish more elegantly. Great creations for a kid's party but I was hoping for more details to make something for mature entertaining.
from Middle Sackville, Nova Scotia
Bought 3 of these books. Great book to add to the garnish sets. Lots of great ideas easy to follow. Well written.
i would buy this product again and again
from Monreal qc
Great book with really easy recipes and great to make appetizers with the garnish kit! I am really happy !
