"Bouchon Bakery is co-authored by Sebastien Rouxel, whose skills and craftsmanship make every page a new lesson: it could be a subtlety that ensures a professional finish, or a flash of ingenuity that reveals a whole new way to heighten flavour and enhance texture.
The deft twists, perfectly written recipes, and dazzling photographs make perfection inevitable, whether you're making a doughnut or an eclair, a croissant or a cream puff.
The Candy and Confections chapter offers unimaginable treats: peppermint patties with creamy centres, nut-laden nougat, fruit jellies, caramel popcorn, Flavoured marshmallows, and bonbons, as well as holiday delights.
Each recipe provides weights for ingredients, as well as volume measures, and directions for standard and convection ovens.
The recipes here run the gamut from the very simple to the complex, but all are readily do able with many do ahead steps and brilliant guidance from three exceptional chefs: Thomas Keller, Sebastien Rouxel, and Matthew McDonald.
