Pastry School by Le Cordon Bleu is a benchmark book with 100 tested, illustrated and fail-safe recipes. Alongside every recipe is a sidebar which presents a product, Chef technique or tip.
The all-time classics (Black Forest Gateau, Fraisier (strawberry and mousseline cream cake), St. Tropez tart …). Simple family recipes (soft-centred chocolate cake, hot vanilla soufflés, tarte Tatin (upside down apple tart)...). More innovative creations (choux with yuzu and blond chocolate, chocolate and marshmallow tartlet, aloe vera and wild strawberry entremets, vanilla cubes and crystallized pansies…).
Pastry is an art form which has also become a pastime, a hobby which combines gourmet delights with tasting. This book, which is a must-have for all self-respecting experienced amateurs, will enable you to discover the best "pâtisseries".
