Wow! With the sky raining bananas I almost forgot I wrote a book! Petite Patisserie is now available for pre-order online at Target, Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Any support for this project will be much appreciated. Stress bake in miniature!
Disclaimer: There is another book coming out this Fall titled “Petite Patisserie”. Who knew?! Make sure to get the right one 🙂
Where: Who the heck knows! Hopefully at Pix and not on Zoom.
Petite Pâtisserie – Petits Fours, Macarons, Bon Bons and Other Whimsical Bite-Sized Treats
Literally translated to “little ovens,” French petits fours are small pastries that can be eaten in two to three bites. Petite Pâtisserie skips the commonplace, white fondant covered cake squares and, instead, introduces you to petit pastry in a new, exciting array of flavors, shapes, textures and colors. These 40 original recipes captivate the eyes before intriguing the taste buds. You eat with your eyes first, and that’s what makes these tiny treats perfect for afternoon tea, weddings, cocktail parties or any festive occasion. Et bien sûr, they taste as good as they look.
Cheryl Wakerhauser, owner of the award-winning Pix Pâtisserie and author of Modern French Pastry, provides detailed step-by-step instruction in her books. She is not only a pastry chef extraordinaire but a teacher as well, offering the how’s and why’s to each recipe. Petite Pâtisserie shares recipes and expertise for a wide range of skill sets, making this the perfect book for avid bakers, pastry chefs in the field and anyone who loves to entertain with their kitchen prowess.
