Elegant techniques for the accomplished baker

Master Chef Bo Friberg returns with sophisticated dessert recipes for the advanced professional chef and the serious home baker. A companion to the popular The Professional Pastry Chef: Fundamentals of Baking and Pastry, this new book delivers readers to the upper echelons of pastry creation, describing advanced techniques in sugarwork, chocolate artistry, and marzipan figures. Chef Bo also devotes chapters to the baking and business of wedding cakes, holiday favorites, modernist desserts, light desserts, and advanced decorating techniques. The accomplished baker will enjoy considerably expanding his or her repertoire with The Advanced Professional Pastry Chef.

"Bo Friberg's The Advanced Professional Pastry Chef is a superb resource for the pastry student, as well as the established chef. His years of experience as a chef and teacher shine through in these well-formulated recipes and insightful tips. This is an essential book for every student of pastry who aspires to a higher level."

ths title does not lie. this really is for the more advanced chefs. you'll need special pastry equipment and plenty of patience, and let us not forget the practice, practice, practice that we should have had with the basics first! not something everyone will understand as it is quite complicated for for the true aficionados i wish you good luck!

I'm sure this must be a marvelous book - if only it would arrive. Have been told that Australia Post had a hiccup and would arrive by last Friday (24/6) but still no sign of it.
