Ko, creator of the popular blog and Instagram Lokokitchen, has brought her creative and unique recipes and ideas into this debut, which offers stunning photographs, along with tips on how to transform tarts and pies into works of art. In addition to sweet pies and tarts, the collection offers a variety of savory recipes. The first part offers recommendations for preferred ingredients and necessary equipment; some of the tips include making sure butter is cold and being careful not to overwork dough. While the recipes and art may initially seem intimidating, Ko encourages readers to be creative and mix and match many of the tart shells and pie crusts. She also gives substitutions for each recipe, along with advice on how to develop patience. For those who are new to making tarts or pies, Ko suggests starting with truth or square, a relatively simple ice cream tart.
VERDICT A funny, well-written collection of recipes suited for bakers of all levels..
