The Professional Pastry Chef Book Description :
If you think sumptuous desserts and healthy eating don't go together, you'll change your mind when you see the tempting, yet delightfully healthy desserts that Bo Friberg has added to the Third Edition of this ever-popular pastry cookbook. The Light Desserts chapter now offers twice as many mouth-watering desserts that will please your palate, your heart, and your waistline. The Third Edition on The Professional Pastry Chef offers hundreds of tempting, easy-to-follow recipes that range from classical to contemporary favorites. Here is a complete guide to the preparation and artful presentation of a bounty of pastries and desserts, including breads, cakes, cookies, pastries, ice creams, candies, and restaurant desserts. Instructions for every recipe have been rewritten using shortened, numbered steps to make them as easy to follow as possible. Each recipe - thoroughly tested by the author and thousands of his students - has been refined to perfection and is virtually foolproof. In brand new, consolidated introductions to each recipe, Master Pastry Chef Bo Friberg carefully explains the proper blending of ingredients, use of pastry equipment, alternate presentations, and professional techniques so you can produce professional results the first time.
