Over the years Nick Malgieri has shared many pastry dough recipes, from ridiculously easy (mix with a fork and press into the pan) to quite elaborate (classic puff pastry, croissants, etc.). In this book, he gives you a range of all types of doughs, step-by-step photos (and videos on his website) about how to prepare them and also how to roll them, shape them and bake them. If you have a bad case of 'fear of pastry' or 'fear of rolling' he can promise you that if you follow the simple instructions here you'll be able to tackle any pastry project you like. Starting off as usual with a quick tutorial on ingredients and equipment, Nick then delves into sweet tarts and tartlets; sweet pies, cobblers and crisps; savoury pies and tarts; strudels, puff pastries, including those with cream, and brioche. With over 125 recipes and beautifully photographed every step of the way, Pastry Perfection is the new definitive pastry bible.
An amazing cookbook for anyone who loves to bake. The recipes are terrific and the photography is superb. Nick Malgieri never disappoints!
