The book Ma Petite Patisserie, by Christophe Felder and Camille Lesecq, is dedicated to delicate and charming treats, which are fundamentally one of the pieces of French pastry. The book, available in English in our online store Books For Chefs, brings together 180 recipes – some classic and others original and inventive – which, with the expert guidance of the chefs, can be easily recreated in the home kitchen.
“Ma Petite Patisserie” begins with a section of twenty seven basic recipes (choux pastry, fondant icing, rhubarb compote, pistachio cream, etc.) from which all the others can be prepared. In addition, it is divided into chapters of increasing complexity, with a final section on fun cakes decorated to surprise the little ones.
Readers will find prep and cook times, decorating tips, step-by-step instructions, and suggestions for vegan and gluten-free alternatives for babas, biscuits, charlottes, creams, financiers, flans, madeleines, petits fours, tartlets, and much more.
