Learn how to make extraordinary French desserts from a master of Patisserie.
Cheryl Wakerhauser―owner of the award-winning Pix Pâtisserie―introduces you to an exciting array of flavors, shapes, textures and colors by focusing on petits fours, bon bons, macarons and so much more. With step-by-step instructions, tips and tricks to demystify the fine art of French desserts, making pâtisserie is more approachable than ever before.
French pâtisserie is a study in components, and Cheryl breaks down each recipe, providing information on classic techniques while imbuing each recipe with a new twist. Her petits fours combine flavors like peppermint chocolate cream and gingerbread cake, or tarragon meringue and mini lemon cream puffs, to create the perfect harmony of taste and texture. In addition to petits fours, she also shares a sweet and savory menu for high tea, bon bons that go above and beyond the classic truffle and her own take on macarons, miniaturized to be the size of pop-in-your-mouth candies.
Cheryl’s ingenuity, incredible flavors and knowledge of techniques are what make this a must-have resource for both aspiring pastry chefs and home bakers.
