Product Description

Review

“An excellent pastry and baking guide such as this doesn’t come along every day – don’t miss out on it.” ~Cookbook Digest

"Patisserie is a must-have for the reference shelf." ~thekitchn.com

“Immensely talented, Chef Christophe offers a rare glimpse into the intricacies of French pastry-making never before seen in such detail. Pastry chefs are like chemists, and this book opens the door to the secrets of timing and texture that are so important in French pastry. With a guiding hand, Christophe makes patisserie more accessible for the home chef and reveals details that separate an ordinary pastry from an extraordinary one. People will love discovering Christophe’s talent through this book.” ~François Payard, pastry chef of FP Patisserie and Francois Payard Bakery

“Christophe Felder is a rarity: a stunningly talented pastry chef with a true gift for teaching. He can make everything from butter croissants that flake into a million shards to simple coconut macaroons easy to understand and equally easy to prepare at home—and that’s just what he does in this new book. A treasure for bakers from beginners to pros.” ~Dorie Greenspan, author of Baking: From My Home to Yours and Around My French Table

“This monumental work by one of the best pastry chefs in France will delight anyone looking to re-create the all-beloved French classics at home. Bakers everywhere will be thrilled to have Christophe Felder's easy-to-follow recipes in their kitchen—and even happier with the sweet rewards!” ~David Lebovitz, author of The Sweet Life in Paris

“I can’t think of a better introduction to the classic canon of French pastry! Broad in scope and yet easy to manage, the detailed recipes are outdone only by the clear and concise step-by-step images that accompany each one. Christophe Felder is a true master of the art and this long-awaited translation of Patisserie is sure to become a benchmark for ambitious bakers.” ~Michael Laiskonis, creative director at the Institute of Culinary Education

This book is a massive reference, with 3,200 photos, all beautifully done. It is clear and concise, as if Chef Felder is advising you personally if you had written him for advice. At 3" thick, there is a French pastry, and then some for everyone.

This is a great book to learn the fundamental skills of french pastry. The instructions are clear and supported with plenty of photos. the recipes are provided with a variety of measurements to accommodate all bakers available tools. This is not a book that you would go to for a quick recipe to whip up when company is on the way, but it is the book when you are wanting to master or learn a new skill and wow your guest. The added bonus is the weight if the book, I'm sure it is at least five pounds; so you can do some weight training to burn off the calories from all the butter you will be eating!

This book is just full of photos, you don't need to worry that you cannot understand those abstract words. And before every chapter, essential knowledge is provided too!

Absolutely the best pastry book in my collection. Each chapter is an education, but it assumes basic knowledge. If you don't know a simmer from a boil or how to use a pastry bag, you will need to find that elsewhere. This book can make average bakers great, not only with excellent recipes, but through training in technique that fosters creativity. Love the meringue and macaron sections in particular, but each chapter will certainly teach something to elevate your baking ability.
