Petite Pâtisserie by Cheryl Wakerhauser provides detailed step-by-step instructions along with tips and tricks to demystify the art of French desserts and candies. She has succeeded where many others fail: she has made the art of making pâtisserie more approachable than ever for both beginner bakers and aspiring pastry chefs. Cheryl wants to take the fear out of making pastry and, to that end, she has included a ‘Confidence Builders’ chapter at the beginning of the book. Here, she outlines some simple rules and exercises to follow to put you on the path to success.
With entire chapters dedicated to bon bons, cookies, candies, petits fours and more, there's definitely something for everyone to try and enjoy. Not only are the flavour profiles appealing, but the finished treats are also beautifully presented. Cheryl also provides you with a 'Techniques' section at the end of the book. Here, she breaks down basic procedures and provides detailed information on classic techniques, like how to make Italian and French meringues, emulsions, rolling doughs, tempering chocolate, and much more.
