Prestige des Grands Chefs Dessert is the grand finale of a great meal. To make a memorable lasting impression, the dessert must excite all the senses: above all it must taste delicious but it should also have texture, a lovely aroma and be beautiful to look at. A «designer dessert», which each individual serving arranged with care and purpose on an attractive plate and cleverly decorated, is a stunning way to finish a dining experience. Talented pastry chef and teacher, Philippe Durand has developed many new ideas and methods for presenting «plated desserts». He has analyzed all the components necessary for creating dazzling presentations of individual desserts arranged artistically on a plate. These innovative dishes will inspire restaurant chefs and caterers as well as home cooks who love to entertain. This book is presented in three sections. The first section illustrates the principles of style, technique and decoration necessary for the successful presentation of an individual dessert. The main part consists of dessert «formulas», grouped according to the main ingredient, along with photographs to help achieve the same stunning results. The basic recipes and techniques for making the desserts in the main section are given at the end. Restaurant chefs will find desserts to make ahead in quantity that are easily assembled to order. There are innovative ideas for combining colorful and flavorful ingredients that will inspire pastry shop owners and caterers. And for the talented home cook who wants to serve a dazzling, decorated dessert to guests, this book offers many delicious possibilities.
