All the classic French pastries made accessible for the home cook, with 3200 step-by-step photographs. For every serious home baker, French pastry represents the ultimate achievement. But to master the techniques, a written recipe can go only so far - what is equally important is to see a professional in action, to learn the nuances of rolling out dough for croissants or caramelizing apples for a tarte tatin. For each of the 210 recipes here, there are photographs that lead the reader through every step of the instructions.
