Book Description

3 Oct 2013

This book is designed and written to help ambitious home cooks take the next steps in cake making.
At its simplest patisserie is about building blocks. Building blocks of texture, flavour, and decoration. The components are often easily created, but when assembled into a finished cake they give the illusion of overall complexity. With an understanding of the key techniques behind each component, delicious and elegant delights are achievable at home.
This book provides you with those tried and tested component recipes and examples of cakes that highlight them. Common patisserie problems and how to avoid them are also covered. Further detail on key kitchen equipment and organization will help cooks approach patisserie with a firm foundation for baking sensational treats.
Patisserie requires additional skills beyond those necessary for usual home baking. A trusted recipe is the essential starting point, but beyond that planning, kitchen organization, and meticulous technique are vital. This book demonstrates many of these techniques and approaches. However, the joy and challenge of good patisserie is the development of your intuitive cookery skills. Tiny decisions about textures, temperatures, tastes, and appearance are the indefinable differences between good and exceptional cakes. As much as the recipes and guidance in this book are here to guide they should be used as a launch pad for your own journey. The ingredients you use, equipment, kitchen temperature, and humidity will vary and necessitate minor changes to the recipes and methods. Keep notes and trust your instincts.

About the Author

TIM KINNAIRD is a pastry chef and owner of Macarons & More, which in July 2012 was awarded a Guild of Fine Food Great Taste Award. Tim launched the company after reaching the finals of BBC One’s MasterChef 2010.
Tim’s love of food was evident at a young age. He taught himself to cook but was influenced by his parent’s enthusiasm for food and his mum’s Good Housekeeping cookbook for children! While he began by making the Sunday family teatime cake he now enjoys the challenge of complex patisserie.
Following MasterChef, Tim moved into a full-time career in food. His successful and awardwinning business sells his now famous macarons online. Tim and his team also produce a range of other fine patisserie and confectionery.
Tim remains part of the MasterChef family, appearing regularly at the BBC Good Food shows demonstrating patisserie and running the Macarons & More stand. Tim’s recipes have featured in two of the MasterChef recipe books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book 4 Feb 2014
By Susan28
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love this book. It has become a reference boom for all things patisserie in our house. The recipes are wonderful, especially the matcha, lemon and white chocolate delivery and the salted chocolate arame tarts with passion fruit. Easy steps to follow and wonderful ideas. Noticed a few typos in some of the recipes.
