Baked goods that are marvels of ingenuity and simplicity
from the famed Bouchon Bakery
The tastes of childhood have always been a touchstone for Thomas
Keller, and in this dazzling amalgam of American and French baked
goods, you''ll find recipes for the beloved TKOs and Oh Ohs
(Keller''s takes on Oreos and Hostess''s Ho Hos) and all the French
classics he fell in love with as a young chef apprenticing in
Paris: the baguettes, the macarons, the mille-feuilles, the
tartes aux fruits.
Co-author Sebastien Rouxel, executive pastry chef for
the Thomas Keller Restaurant Group, has spent years refining
techniques through trial and error, and every page offers a new
lesson: a trick that assures uniformity, a subtlety that makes for
a professional finish, a flash of brilliance that heightens flavor
and enhances texture. The deft twists, perfectly written recipes,
and dazzling photographs make perfection inevitable.
