This was a gift for my 16 year old daughter who enjoys baking and together we made delicious lemon tarts. The kit is well packaged and the rings are well made and durable. Instructions were clear and ingredients simple and the pastry weights, Pastry bag and tips are all professional quality. Thermometer was a bit large and hard to clip on a small pan as needed it to be 1" from bottom of pan when making meringue. Overall, highly recommend this high quality kit especially during covid and staying at home-such a fun pastime and with kids.

The Tart & Soul of the Matter
Delicious recipe and perfect kit to make stunning tarts
This product is a great kit for all skill levels. I’m a beginner baker and it was so easy to follow the steps and create a delicious and beautiful dessert! Everything you need is in the box and it is such beautiful packing. Great quality! Perfect gift!
Feeling like a pastry chef for the day!
This is a great gift idea for a couple or group of people to enjoy. My sister and I had so much fun making the French tarts. It was an all day adventure so start early for sure. We have never worked with pie weights and the candy thermometer so it was a neat experience stepping into the world of pastry chefs. :) We made our tarts a little thicker than the recipe recommendation and really liked it. Our meringue ended up a little runny but tasted delicious. The richness of the lemon in combination with the soft meringue was scrumptious! Plus, all the tools it comes with is high quality and will be a great addition to anyone's kitchen!
Excited to Start This New Adventure/Hobby!
Everything arrived beautifully packaged. I haven’t tried out the kit yet but it looks like it is very well thought out: the step-by-step instructions packet has loads of information on almost every side, there are instructions on how wash all of the tools in the kit, there are tips on working with the dough and what could be done with leftovers, as well as more ways to find recipes and get connected with the cooking gift set co. community. The only improvement I can think of so far, and it’s a minor one, is to have the three recipe cards laminated. There is a good possibility that a beginner will be referring back to the recipes or instructions several times throughout the first time trying this kit, and it would be nice to just be able to wipe the cards clean and to keep for next time.
