Author: Jill Colonna
Looking for something that seems like a great new challenge for the new year, but actually is much easier than that? Jill Colonna has done the work for you and helps to show you the easy way to make French classic pastries. In this sequel to Jill's 'Mad About Macarons!', Jill shows you the best, relaxed way to make the Parisians’ favourite afternoon treats: éclairs, tartlets, millefeuilles, and macarons, and guides you to many of Paris's best patisseries and tea salons. Celebrate the new year in style with these lovely cakes and pastries.
Share in Jill’s enthusiasm and skills learned from the French over her 22 years in Paris to help you master patisserie easily at home. With 50 typical teatime recipes, enjoy tips, stories and a walks section that shows where to taste many of the best pastries in Paris.
Lavishly photographed, Jill starts with simple and mouthwatering French teacakes, hot chocolate, crêpes and ice cream then continues with clear step-by-step instructions for each chapter: choux (éclair) pastry; tartlets; millefeuilles; and gluten-free macarons. The final chapter culminates in a French tea party, mixing and matching the recipes to produce temptations such as Chocolate-Earl Grey Tartlets with Orange-Liqueur Crumble Puffs, a Paris-Brest with a twist and a Saint-Honoré, plus many more treats that you’ll be inspired to create yourself.
This book will help the learner baker build confidence. Complete with tea-pairing suggestions, add your own Parisian touch to 4 o’clock teatime in no time.
