From master chef Michel Roux, a gorgeous, full-color
cookbook that demystifies the art of pastry making
For many home cooks, making pie and pastry can be intimidating.
Now, in his exciting new cookbook, Michelin three-star chef Michel
Roux shows how easy it is to prepare pastry at home just like a
professional. All types of dough are covered--short crust, brioche,
puff pastry, croissant, and more. Roux provides detailed,
step-by-step techniques, all illustrated with stunning color
photographs. He also presents a range of classic and contemporary
recipes-100 in all - with mouthwatering photographs of almost every
one. Showstopping sweets include Sweet Pumpkin Tart with Toasted
Almonds, Chocolate and Raspberry Tart, and Apple Turnovers. For
something savory, there are Onion and Bacon Mini Pizzas, Phyllo
Croustades with Seared Tuna, and Herbed Monkfish in a Puff Pastry
Crust. For home cooks who want a new bible on the subject of making
pie and pastry at home, this book is the answer.
