About the book:

Long considered the pastry chef's bible, The Professional Pastry Chef has now been completely revised and is presented in a larger, simplified format that is much easier to use..

This third edition offers over 1,000 tempting recipes and is a complete guide to preparation and elegant presentation. Instructions for every recipe have been revised and rewritten to make them as comprehensible and easy to follow as possible, and all feature both U.S. and metric measures for each ingredient. You'll find techniques that enable you to make high-tech, nouvelle creations. And with the aid of life-size templates that can be copied directly from the book, you can create tulip shells, chocolate and fondant ornaments, dessert cases, cast sugar showpieces, and chocolate or marzipan decorations.

In new recipe introductions, Master Pastry Chef Bo Friberg carefully explains the proper blending of ingredients, use of pastry equipment, alternate presentations, ingredient substitutions, and professional techniques to produce professional results. The origin and history of the classics are also revealed. Also included are: pastry ingredients and equipment, including quality determination, usage, storage, and origin; plate presentations utilizing sprayed and piped chocolate, sauce painting, stencils, and caramelized sugar ornaments; and nutritional analysis of the recipes in the Light Desserts chapter.
