Gateaux : 150 Large and Small Cakes, Hardback Book


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

From jewel like caneles and madeleines in a window case to burnished brioches at the boulangerie to showstopper centrepiece desserts at five-star restaurants, everyone loves a perfect bake. 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.
