Winner of the 2014 James Beard Award for Best Cookbook, Dessert & Baking

What does it take to perfect a flawless éclair? A delicate yet buttery croissant? To pipe dozens of macarons? The answer is: an intimate knowledge of the fundamentals of pastry. In The Art of French Pastry award-winning pastry chef Jacquy Pfeiffer, cofounder of the renowned French Pastry School in Chicago, gives you just that.

By teaching you how to make everything from pâte à choux to pastry cream, Pfeiffer builds on the basics until you have an understanding of the science behind the ingredients used, how they interact with one another, and what your hands have to do to transform them into pastry. This yields glorious results! Expect to master these techniques and then indulge in exquisite recipes, such as:

· brioche
· napoléons / Mille-Feuilles
· cream puffs
· Alsatian cinnamon rolls / chinois
· lemon cream tart with meringue teardrops
· elephant ears / palmiers
· black forest cake
· beignets

as well as some traditional Alsatian savory treats, including:

· Pretzels
· Kougelhof
· Tarte Flambée
· Warm Alsatian Meat Pie

Pastry is all about precision, so Pfeiffer presents us with an amazing wealth of information—lists of necessary equipment, charts on how ingredients react in different environments, and the precise weight of ingredients in grams, with a look at their equivalent in U.S. units—which will help you in all aspects of your cooking.

Thanks OP. Amazon allows you read a sample before you buy. I read a few pages and it is clear the author knows his stuff. Bought a copy. Compare to $7 on Google Play.
