Le Cookie by Mickael Benichou (Ryland Peters & Small, £9.99)

If there were to be a dessert Olympics, the two nations that would surely have the competition licked would be France and the good ole’ US of A. One, the purveyors of Parisian pâtisserie, pretty pastel-hued macaroons and delicate mille-feuille, the other, home of rich creamy cheesecake and pioneers of brownie, red velvet and cupcake trends. Keen bakers (and tasters) who find it rather difficult to decide between these two great sugar-laden nations need agonise no more, as Le Cookie brings together the experimental fun factor of the Big Apple with the classic taste and delicacy of Paris’s most exquisitely tempting sweet treats.  

Page turner The brains behind luxury cookie brand Moon Street do not disappoint with their collection of sophisticated biscuits. Orange Crush and Praline Chic Cookies are delicious and rather refined, too.

Page turn-off Flicking through the sumptuous photography may leave you with a case of crockery-envy, but we can’t all have crystal cake stands, gilded saucers and cute-as-a-button tiny gold spoons.

Typical phrase “As pretty as Paris in spring, these cupcakes are reminiscent of a pavlova with summer berries and meringue.”

Reading books is a nice activity but it takes your attention a lot and when you are too tired, you can't track what's going on. So if that happens, it's better to spend your spare time in a different way, for example playing dice betting games which are really entertaining actually.

Zuerst bevölkerten polynesische Reisende von den Marquesas oder Gesellschaftsinseln die Insel. Diese Bewohner trugen reiche religiöse und künstlerische Kulturen mit sich. Als die Bevölkerung zunahm, brach die Nahrungskette, was zu Hungersnöten Ostern bilder und sogar zu Kannibalismus führte. Die Überlebenden wurden der Gnade von Sklavenhändlern aus anderen Ländern und der Regierungsherrschaft durch Peru und Chile ausgeliefert. Der Ansturm brachte auch verschiedene verheerende Krankheiten mit sich.
