Seldom has a collaboration between two chefs produced such rich and exhilarating effects. They are the ones we find in the book, New-School Sweets, by Vinesh Johny and Andrés Lara and published by Page Street Publishing Co. Throughout its more than 200 pages, the two chefs offer more than 70 different creations with a slogan that says it all: “old-school pastries with an insanely delicious twist.”
Casual, informal, and bold, the creations surprise because of their originality but also due to their presentation, with a street aesthetic and a deliberately homemade touch. The two authors, regular contributors to so good .. magazine, have designed a repertoire of sweets that can both stimulate the amateur and satisfy the professional looking for inspiration.
The products are divided into seven sections whose titles also help to understand the spirit of the book: dramatic pies & tarts, next-level travel cakes, yum-yum cookies, midnight layered cakes; scrumptious snacks, glorious breakfast bakes, and shop-style desserts. Creations in the French style whose personality is renewed with a touch of spice, vegetables that take center stage in all kinds of cakes, and many other ideas that reflect the traveling soul of both authors.
