Petite Pâtisserie: Bon Bons, Petits Fours, Macarons and Other Whimsical Bite-Size Treats
Cheryl Wakerhauser has traveled the world and trained in France. Her work has been featured in multiple magazines and she is the executive chef and owner of the award-winning Pix Pâtisserie in Portland, Oregon. Petite Pâtisserie is her second cookbook to date. In this book is everything you need to know to have a classy party or tea time, or just to have some sweet treats for yourself. With over forty recipes, you are sure to find something you like. Each recipe includes detailed instructions, but with the flexibility to make them your own, as well as beautiful pictures of the finished product. Once you’ve completed her confidence builders, you’ll be making treats that are almost too pretty to eat in no time.
French pastries and desserts are my favorite things in the world, so I was very excited to get this book. I’ve always wanted to learn to make macarons but hadn’t found a cookbook that described it well enough for me. Cheryl’s book was exactly what I was looking for. Her instructions are clear and easy to follow as well as her parlor tricks, which make each recipe even simpler. You can tell that she actually wants to teach you how to cook on your own and not just impress you with her skills. The equipment list at the end is also very helpful. I highly recommend this book to all French pastry lovers.
