Grupo Vilbo and so good.. magazine present Jordi Puigvert’s Evolution, a practical book about new and surprising techniques and ingredients for modern pastry. As Jordi Puigvert often says – evolution is not revolution. Indeed, it’s not about revolutionizing anything, but helping pastry move one step forward. But how? Through a series of techniques and ingredients as interesting as unusual in traditional pastry. If there is a natural ingredient, with an origin and extraction method similar to that of the usual ones, and which provides us with practical and specific solutions in our daily tasks, why shouldn’t we use it?
Introducing new, advantageous ingredients; simplifying the processes; increasing the uses and performance of each product; in short, optimizing the technical side of pastry and bringing it to its best: this is what smart pastry is all about – a concept which Jordi Puigvert practices and teaches all over the world as a technical advisor for several companies. And this will actually be the main topic of a book which will come out next November, written by Puigvert himself and published by Grupo Vilbo and So Good..
