Classic French pastry represents the pinnacle of control, elegance, and technique.

Felder includes French classics such as sables, eclairs, Saint-Honore cake, tarte tatin, and croquembouche, regional recipes from Alsace, Brittany, and Provence, as well as his own twists on Belgian (Speculoos), German (Black Forest cake), and Australian (Pavlova) desserts. Each beautiful photograph will inspire bakers of all levels while step-by-step pictures clearly illustrate techniques such as making fondant flowers, constructing a charlotte, and braiding a brioche.

To build younger bakers skills and confidence, Felder includes a section of easy recipes for the whole family which don t short on proper technique.
