Descrição do produto
THE ELEMENTS OF DESSERT
IN THE ELEMENTS OF DESSERT, RENOWNED pastry chef Francisco Migoya and The Culinary Institute of America take you on a guided tour through the innovative flavors, ingredients, and techniques in the thrilling world of desserts. He explains the art of dessert through its most essential and fundamental elementssuch as mousses, doughs, and ganachesrevealing in each recipe how to incorporate these building blocks into inventive, unforgettable delicacies. He begins by covering the core concepts and techniques, including flavor breakdowns focused on combinations and compatibility; basic pastry methods; principles of dessert and menu composition; preparation methods for essentials such as custards, creams, and meringues; and chocolate making and tempering basics.
After exploring these essentials, Migoya delves into the desserts themselves, divided into distinct groups:
PRE-DESSERTS: Semi-sweet small dishessuch as Goat Cheese Bavarian Cream with Beet Jelly and Date Pound Cake Crumbsintended to bridge the gap between savory main courses and fully sweet desserts.
PLATED DESSERTS: Simple, modern, and elegantly plated recipes like Toasted Milk Panna Cotta Covered in Caramelized Milk Chocolate with a Crisp Croissant Crouton and Devil's Food Cake Soup.
DESSERT BUFFETS: A wide range of small items from which diners may choosewith an emphasis on dishes that will keep, as well as on visual impact and presentationsuch as Chocolate Blackout Cake with 64% Dark Chocolate Mousse, Luxardo Cherries, and Crème Fraîche.
PASSED AROUND DESSERTS: Small nibbles that are plattered and passed around the room, usually in easy-to-handle forms like lollipops or macarons.
Sections on cakes (Entremets) and petits fours (Mignardises) round out this collection of awe-inspiring desserts and highly sophisticated techniques. With Migoya's unique approach and clear guidance, combined with gorgeous and instructive photography, The Elements of Dessert offers a comprehensive education that will empower pastry students and working professionals alike to reach new heights in both flavor and presentation.
"The world of pastry rejoices; Francisco shows us once again that there is still much to say in this profession, and this book is an honest reflection of a person who does not lose sight of tradition, even when working from a contemporary and modern perspective. Perfection, technique, philosophy, purity, andabove alla very personal aesthetic defines this work in all of its aspects."

The layout of the book is very well thought out. You must be prepared to invest in ingredients and equipment to make the majority of the recipes in this book.
A suitable amount of background is recommended before attempting the recipes found later in the book and this background is provided in Chapter 1. Do not skip this chapter! The first chapter provides an extensive explanation of preparation and cooking methods (for example: tempering chocolate), an overview of flavor and texture profiles of ingredients, and even considerations in menu composition.
Subsequent chapters contain recipes and photographs grouped by the type of setting under which the dessert would be served (such as plated, in a buffet, cakes, etc.). The ingredient amounts in the recipes are weight based so at the very least you must have a kitchen scale.
In the end of the book is a list of on-line resources where unique ingredients or tools can be purchased which I found very helpful.
I'd recommend this book to anyone who has an appreciation of culinary artistry, and strongly recommend this book to chefs who enjoy modernist cooking.
