Lindsey Shere, the longtime pastry chef of Chez Panisse, the legendary restaurant founded by Alice Waters, presents her renowned dessert recipes. Classic in inspiration, innovative in execution, the collection builds from recipes for basic pastries, cookies, cakes, and creams to an array of sophisticated and sumptuous finales. The result is a revelation of color, flavor, and texture that complement seasonal menus: an autumnal Chartreuse Ice Cream and Figs in Caramel; a winter counterpoint of Pink Grapefruit and Champagne Sorbet; the riotous berry creations of the spring—tarts, pies, shortcakes, curds, and fools; and the Sunset Bombe of summer. Lindsey Shere conveys the intricacies of her technique with extraordinary clarity and precision.
For the professional chef or dedicated home cook, Chez Panisse Desserts will expand the repertoire and, in the Chez Panisse tradition, inspire new uses for the freshest ingredients nature has to offer.
