"The tastes of childhood have always been a touchstone for Thomas Keller, and in this ... amalgam of American and French baked goods, you'll find recipes for the beloved TKOs and Oh Ohs (Keller's takes on Oreos and Hostess's Ho Hos) and all the French classics he fell in love with as a young chef apprenticing in Paris: the baguettes, the macarons, the mille-feuilles, the tartes aux fruits. Co-author Sebastien Rouxel, executive pastry chef for the Thomas Keller Restaurant Group, has spent years refining techniques through trial and error, and every page offers a new lesson: a trick that assures uniformity, a subtlety that makes for a professional finish, a flash of brilliance that heightens flavor and enhances texture."--From publisher description.… (more)

I cannot stop reading this book! The photography is fantastic! I want to make everything in it. Nougat will be first. I just have to buy the specialty items, like rice paper and silver leaf gelatin. Then, there's the dog biscuit recipe, made with chicken stock, chicken livers, bacon, and finished with a ketchup glaze. Note: Keller uses foie gras trimmings when he make the dog biscuits.

Although the instructions seem clear, this isn't beginner pastry. I'm sure the specialty ingredients and detailed steps are worth the time, money and effort. The challenge makes the recipes more appealing, to me. This book lets everyone enjoy the products of Bouchon Bakery, including the dogs! ( )

If I worked in the same building as Heather Webb, I'd be checking this book out and leaving it on her desk, in hopes she'd find the recipes irresistible :) ( )

Always a treat to eat here and the book is delightful.
Your mouth will water and you'll be ready to try the recipes
In your own kitchen... Some seem a bit daunting but
Oh so delicious looking! Yum! ( )
