Pierre Hermé PastriesBook - 2011
"Each sugary treat has its story, and Pierre Hermé Pastries untangles the history behind fifty desserts, separating legend from truth and delving into the wars, the political intrigue, the round-the-world journeys, and other surprising events that inspired the most delicious pastries. Also exploring the evolution of desserts over time, the stories that introduce each featured dessert divulge how great chefs have built upon and improved these pastries, and master pastry chef Pierre Herm ̌embraces this spirit of innovation in inspired recipes that follow the originals"--Dust jacket.
