    I am very interested in buying one or all of Manuela’s books. Are any or all her books in English. If so, I would very much appreciate it if you can inform me where I can find and purchase her books. I am very much a fan of Manuela’s baking as to me, she is one of the most gifted woman in the world in which her passion for baking is reflected I am sure of the taste but also in the beautiful way that she presents her baked dishes which is so beautiful, elegant, and classy. Manuela is truly in a class of her own which cannot be compared and I am so thankful that she is sharing her recipes through her books. Thank you Manuela!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to read my email and do have a wonderful day!
