Desserts / Classic Desserts: The Good Cook Techniques and Recipes Series ; Time Life

The Good Cook Techniques and Recipes;
Time Life

Titled: Desserts, part of The Good Cook series, was created in London and revised and titled  Classic Desserts, published as part of the series for America, with separate teams of Time Life Editors for each version, with Chief consultant Richard Olney guiding perduction, editing and the contributions of text and recipes by well (and not so well) known authurs.
The book has two parts; the first part, a teaching, with detailed instructions and photos showing step-by-step methods and the second part an anthology of previously published recipe, with measurements in both Metric and Imperial.
Desserts as part of the 27 cookbooks in the European series, is focused on use in Europe, where Classic Desserts in the 28 book American series was revised for use in the homes of America.

The paper wrapped boards and spine of the European series, do not hold up as well as the cloth spines and cloth wrapped back boards of the American version.
