Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After divulging the intriguing histories behind 50 iconic desserts, master pastry chef Pierre Hermand#233; shares his tried-and-tested recipes for the great classics of French pastry and other definitive desserts from around the worldand#8212;and then he reveals how to reinvent them. Rose-scented almond paste and a compote of raspberries and lychees fill Hermand#233;and#8217;s croissants; his Saint Honorand#233; cake combines green tea, chestnuts, and passion fruit; and caramelized mango adorns his foie gras crand#232;me brand#251;land#233;e.

The luscious photographs and 100 recipes featured in Pierre Hermand#233; Pastries flaunt Hermand#233;and#8217;s mastery of technique and the talent for combining textures and flavors that have earned him the reputation as one of the worldand#8217;s most skilled and inventive pastry chefs.

Praise for Pierre Hermand#233; Pastries:

and#160;

"There are cookbooks, and there are coffee table books. Pierre Hermand#233; Pastries (Stewart, Tabori and Chang; $50) is more the latter than the former, though that shouldnand#8217;t detract from its value to those who are captivated, maybe even obsessed, by beautiful desserts." and#8212;Washington Post

and#160;

"The photographs are stunning. The recipes are the stuff of custard-rich dreams." and#8212;Publishers Weekly

and#160;

"This is a cookbook that a passionate pastry lover will want, not only to replicate Hermand#233;'s own recipes but to be inspired by, as well. And for anyone who loves a good story to go along with the food, you'll appreciate reading about the history behind each recipe." and#8212;Epicurious.com

and#160;

and#8220;Read it cover to cover, and you'll have a very good idea of how French pastry got to where it is today . . . Intense cookbook porn ahead: donand#8217;t say you weren't warned.and#8221; and#8212;Eater.com
