Product Description

Patisserie gives readers all the technical know-how required to become an expert in the art of French patisserie and invent their own masterpieces. Each of the 100 recipes features a full-colour cross-section illustration, step-by-step photography and a beautiful hero image in order to both inspire the reader and demystify some of France's most iconic desserts.

Patisserie includes the basic building-block recipes needed to understand the fundamentals of French patisserie, from the pastry itself (shortcrust pastry, sweet pastry, puff pastry, choux pastry and more) to fillings (custards, creams, butters, mousses, ganaches and pastes) and embellishments (meringue, chocolate, sauces and sugar art).

From simple treats like madeleines, financiers and cookies to more complex creations, like black forest cake, eclairs, croissants, macarons, lemon meringue pie, l'opera, mocha, croquembouche, charlotte, rum baba and more, Patisserie covers all of the French delicacies you could ever dream of.

              Comments about Patisserie:

              Bought as a gift for our daughter as she had seen the book elsewhere, but couldn't justify buying it for herself!! We got it for her birthday from Booktopia for less than the price than she had seen it. The book is very well laid out with lots of guidance if you enjoy making French pastries/ tarts etc, also various fillings. Is a great book if you enjoy this field of cooking, not for basic use more intermediate bakers.

                Very well executed, easy to follow methods, and beautiful big pictures. Covers all those techniques you've heard of but never been sure how to tackle.
