"A Neoclassic View of Plated Desserts demonstrates both the subtle and theatrical pizzazz of a talented collective of visionaries." -Andrew MacLauchlan Executive Pastry Chef, Coyote Cafe "A brilliant addition to Tish Boyle's and Timothy Moriarty's series of cookbooks. This dynamic duo has thoroughly translated the recipes of some of our country's leading pastry chefs with immense ease and perfection. It is with enormous admiration that I recommend this cookbook to anyone searching for a greater knowledge of desserts." -Francois Payard Owner, Payard Patisserie & Bistro Author, Simply Sensational Desserts "It is the purpose of a neoclassic dessert to isolate the integral elements of a time-honored classic and transform its components to produce a dessert with the grandeur demanded by today's consumer. The pastry chefs who contributed to this book have provided recipes that do just that-and they do it magnificently!" -Bo Friberg Chef/Instructor, The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone
Publishers Weekly, 2000-02-07 In their third in a series (after Chocolate Passion) of books on plated desserts, Boyle and Moriarty (of Chocolatier magazine) pool the talents of various pastry chefs to assemble a collection of beautiful desserts that will challenge even the most able home cook. In an interesting introduction, well-known pastry experts such as Nick Malgieri (Chocolate) and Chris Broberg (pastry chef at Lespinasse) voice their opinions on dessert-related topics and relate their own sometimes difficult learning experiences. The desserts themselves are quite complex, with each recipe consisting of several parts (e.g., to make James Foran's Caramelized Apple Phyllo Crisp, you have to prepare the Crisp, Caramelized Apples, Phyllo Shells, Red Wine-Dried Cherry Sauce, Indian Cinnamon Ice Cream and an Apple Garnish, then assemble the whole). In compensation, these are impressive creations. Pat Coston's Milk Chocolate and Banana Mousse Box with Amaretto Ice Cream and Caramelized Bananas is like a present begging to be opened; John Degnan's Trio of Asian Brûlées is daintily presented in individual sake cups. Special equipment is helpfully listed at the start of each recipe. (Mar.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
