Indulge yourself with the finest pastries in the world, created by the award-winning pastry chef of the legendary Ritz Hotel in Paris
Welcome to the universe of Fran ois Perret, pastry chef at the Ritz Paris. Savor sumptuous pastries and cakes: the famous honey madeleine, or the Poire BelleH l ne en cage, and explore too this legendary hotel on the Place Vendome. Perret writes about his inspiration for his top ten creations, and then five haute p tisserie desserts are each interpreted in three different variations: as an appetizer (la touche), as a main dessert, and as a light, sweet finishing flourish (la sucrerie). The book concludes with Perret's favorite: marble cake nestled in its pretty box stamped with the name of the famous hotel; the dessert unveils itself like a precious gem.
