Description: A respect for tradition and a familiarity with the past are certainly good things in cooking, as in any other field. But the art of cooking is constantly changing, and Lenotre's Desserts and Pastries cookbook was written as an effort to explain and illustrate La Nouvelle Patisserie Francaise. Gaston Lenotre has worked for many years to develop what is now called the New School of French Pastry.
The French pastries and desserts included in this book are not mere copies of standard preparations. Each includes improvements and variations that make virtually every recipe in this book a Lenotre specialty.
Condition: Good condition with very minor shelf wear.
