"Though a plethora of international cookbooks focuses on sweets, this encyclopedia stands out as a workhorse, suitable for both study and practical application with its compilation of vast resources along with representative recipes. . . . Libraries that pair this book with The Oxford Companion to Sugar and Sweets, ed. by Darra Goldstein (CH, Nov'15, 53-1082), should cover most of their reference collection needs. . . . Summing Up: Recommended. All audiences." -- Choice
