As you know, Sarah and I adore everything French, and French baking is no exception. When we received our review copy of Patisserie : Master the Art of French Pastry by Mélanie Dupuis & Anne Cazor, we were inspired to start baking our favourite French treats. Patisserie showcases 100 delicious step by step recipes to help you achieve perfect results at home. Each recipe is beautifully illustrated and includes loads of details such as the special equipment needed, variations, tricky aspects, techniques needed to master, and organisation tips.
All the ingredients are clearly photographed, and the step by step instructions include lots of photographs to guide you successfully through the process.
Paterisserie is divided into two sections – Base Recipes and Pastries. The base recipes includes all the techniques and instruction you need to master tart pastries, yeast doughs, meringues, creams, icings, decorations and more. The Pastries includes all your French favourites such as Mille-Feuilles, Macarons, Black Forest Cake, Chocolate Éclairs, Madeleines, and more.
The photography and illustrations in this volume are amazing. This book will help you confidently prepare these delicious French desserts and treats at home. The hard part will be deciding which treat to bake first!
We thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys French treats and wants to take their French baking to the next level. It would make a lovely gift for the home baking enthusiast. It is s wonderful book to look through and helps you learn all the processes required in French baking.
