9780471293132: Grand Finales: A Neoclassic View of Plated Desserts

"A Neoclassic View of Plated Desserts demonstrates both the subtle and theatrical pizzazz of a talented collective of visionaries." -Andrew MacLauchlan Executive Pastry Chef, Coyote Cafe "A brilliant addition to Tish Boyle's and Timothy Moriarty's series of cookbooks. This dynamic duo has thoroughly translated the recipes of some of our country's leading pastry chefs with immense ease and perfection. It is with enormous admiration that I recommend this cookbook to anyone searching for a greater knowledge of desserts." -François Payard Owner, Payard Patisserie & Bistro Author, Simply Sensational Desserts "It is the purpose of a neoclassic dessert to isolate the integral elements of a time-honored classic and transform its components to produce a dessert with the grandeur demanded by today's consumer. The pastry chefs who contributed to this book have provided recipes that do just that-and they do it magnificently!" -Bo Friberg Chef/Instructor, The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone

Plated desserts--artfully arranged confections prepared from multiple components--are a modern restaurant mainstay. In Grand Finales, authors Tish Boyle and Timothy Moriarty present 53 such creations, the work of 23 leading American pastry chefs who have been challenged to make "neoclassic" versions of traditional desserts. Thus, for example, tart tatin, the venerable French apple galette, is reconfigured by chef Lincoln Carson as Pear Tatin with Vanilla Ice Cream and Caramel Sauce. Like the other recipes in the book, the pear tatin requires multiple subpreparations (in this case 5, though 7 to 10 elsewhere is not unusual); frequently large recipe yields (72, in one case), ingredient quantities given by weight, and restaurant-ingredient "call-fors" (like isomalt and trimoline) further alert us to the fact--unstated--that the book is for professionals. This said, general readers may well be intrigued by the talent and technique on display in 105 color photos of the unquestionably gorgeous desserts, and by the useful, often fascinating information on pastry history and production that the book provides.

Organized by classic dessert categories or fare, the book offers a wide range of "reinterpretations," including White Chocolate Key Lime Tart, Passion Fruit Baked Alaska with Coconut Marshmallows, and Ginger and Quince Napoleons. A preliminary chapter introduces readers to the chefs--among them (in addition to Lincoln Carson) teacher and baking-book author Nick Malgieri, Jacquy Pfeiffer and Sebastien Cannone of the French Pastry School, and Chris Broberg of Manhattan restaurant Lespinasse. Offering insights and personal vignettes, the chefs help spin the historical and pastry-career investigation that follows. An illustrated chapter on sugar work concludes the book, along with a glossary of classic dessert types. These latter sections are valuable resources in themselves, and should engross all dessert makers, from the home-based to those who produce, or want to produce, stellar restaurant sweets. --Arthur Boehm

From the Inside Flap:

"When everything comes full circle, it will always come back to the classics." -Michael Hu Pastry Chef and Consultant Ask any Chef: When it comes to desserts, the classics are the grand finales of all great meals. They have withstood the test of time. Who can resist the sumptuous temptations of Black Forest Cake, Boston Cream Pie, or Cherries Jubilee? Or the savory familiarity of rice pudding, chocolate mousse, caramelized bananas, or an old-fashioned plum tart? In this Exciting, delectably photographed new look at classic desserts, authors Tish Boyle and Timothy Moriarty invite some of the world's greatest pastry chefs to re-invent the classics. A Neoclassic View of Plated Desserts: Grand Finales is a testament to the timelessness of tradition . and to the creativity of today's great pastry chefs in reworking the basic culinary building blocks into enchanting, fresh new creations that remain faithful to their source. The Recipes in this Volume offer a wonderful balance of old and new-and all will delight the eye, satisfy the taste buds, and stimulate your own creativity. Lincoln Carson of Picasso, in Las Vegas, Nevada, whips up a pear-starred version of the traditional Tarte Tatin; Susan Notter and Ann Amernick add playful elements to their '90s napoleons; Chris Broberg of Lespinasse sparks Butterscotch Rice Pudding with unexpected flavor combinations; while Norman Love's (of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company in Naples, Florida) Manjari Mousse and Kumquat Cake blends the sweet-tart jolt of kumquat with the full flavor of Manjari chocolate to create a sublime, surprising, streamlined delight. Like its Companions in the acclaimed Grand Finales series, A Neoclassic View of Plated Desserts overflows with time-proven crowd pleasers, all beautifully presented with color photographs and detailed step-by-step instructions. Use them as they are . or do as their creators did-break the rules and add a touch of your own to bring down the house with a truly grand finale.
