Savory & Sweet
By Michel Roux
People often view making pastry as intimidating, complicated and beyond their capability. With his new book Pastry, chef Michel Roux dispels this myth by presenting all the classic pastries with simplified cooking techniques, and by offering an inspiring collection of easy-to-follow original recipes.

Each chapter in Pastry is based on a particular type of dough, including puff pastry, croissant dough, brioche dough, phyllo pastry and shortcrust pastries. Step-by-step instructions are offered for preparing each type of dough alongside a variety of sweet and savory recipes. Classic dishes are given a modern twist, while innovative recipes boast new combinations of flavors or a simpler cooking style.

Master pastry-based favorites like:
  • Quiche Lorraine
  • Asparagus and Red Pepper Tart
  • Beef and Cheese Empanadas
  • Spinach and Pear Turnovers with Parmesan Sauce
  • Beef and Ale Pies
  • Brioche and Bacon Twists
  • Cornish Pasties
