Description: The French make the world's most glorious desserts, and Gaston Lenotre is the dean of French dessert-makers. With the publication of Lenotre's Desserts and Pastries a few years ago, he secured his reputation as the greatest pastry chef since Careme. Now Lenotre has worked his magic in the realm of ice creams and candies, and once again he has proven himself the master. What a fabulous new book he has produced! Lenotre's Ice Creams and Candies is filled with elegant, dreamlike desserts and confections in every imaginable form, in every color of the rainbow. Try the Loire Valley sundae, an icy fantasy of raspberry sherbet, brandied cherries, slivered almonds, and strawberry sauce. Or sample Lenotre's incomparable sultans -- chocolate miniatures made with rum, raisins, and fresh cream.
In all, Lenotre's Ice Creams and Candies contains 227 superb recipes for candied fruits, ice creams, sherbets, sundaes, parfaits, frozen souffles, caramels, sauces, pralines, chocolates, preserves, and molded combinations, such as the frozen Grand Marnier dessert.
From the simplest fruit puree to the magisterial boule de neige, these treats all bear the distinctive Lenotre trademark: a refreshing cleanness of flavor that results from keeping ingredients to a minimum and using only the best. This is the secret of Lenotre's success -- and now his success can be yours.
