A new cookbook featuring nearly 100 amazing plated desserts from legendary pastry chef Francois Payard. In this new book from legendary pastry chef Francois Payard, professional pastry chefs and serious home bakers will learn how to prepare pastry and other plated desserts that rival the best in the world. These recipes have been developed and perfected by Payard over twenty years, from his early days as a pastry chef in France to his current position as an American culinary icon. Each recipe is a singular work of art, combining thrilling and often surprising flavors with innovative, modern techniques to create unforgettable masterpieces like Blueberry Pavlova with Warm Blueberry Coulis, Olive Olive Macaron with Olive Oil Sorbet, Dark Chocolate Souffle with Pistachio Ice Cream, and Crepes Filled with Orange Parfait and Candied Orange.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"If you're serious about making desserts, Payard's book is indispensable. In vivid and engaging detail, it tells you all you need to know about setting up a well-equipped pastry kitchen and what it takes to run it: the tools you'll need and how to use them; the ingredients you'll want and where to find them. Though Payard's plated des�serts have evolved over the years, his work remains grounded in classical training. To absorb his teachings is to learn from a master of the craft."
--THOMAS KELLER, chef, The French Laundry "Francois Payard was at the forefront of every exciting change and trend in pastry over the past quarter century, and now, with this gorgeous book, we can be there, too, seeing the evolution of plated desserts, understanding how the elements of great desserts come together, and, best of all, because of Francois' and Tish Boyle's clear directions, making them ourselves. There is something delicious to discover on every page."
--DORIE GREENSPAN, author of Around My French Table and owner of Beurre & Sel cookies "I first met Francois Payard many years ago, yet I continue to be dazzled by his creativity and his style, which always highlights the essence of taste. Francois has made a statement throughout his career of creating simple but delicate desserts that reveal the richness of textures and flavors. I am eager to follow his deserved success and his further achievements for many years to come."
--PIERRE HERME, pastry chef "Francois is truly a French pastry master whose influence has reached so many American kitchens. Although he is a third-generation chef and expert in the classics, he doesn't shy away from embracing new techniques and global, even unusual fla�vors. The result is a truly original style with stunning presentations."
--DANIEL BOULUD, chef and owner, Restaurant DANIEL "Payard Desserts is really a 'best of' collection from the great talent and creativity of Francois Payard. This beautiful book includes many wonderful techniques that help demystify the stunning desserts created in the last twenty-five years by one of the most talented pastry chefs of our time."
--ERIC RIPERT, chef and co-owner, Le Bernardin "Payard Desserts is a visually appealing book with easy-to-follow techniques that help 'decode' classic French desserts...Overall, Payard Desserts is an impressive collection of desserts from a trendsetting master pastry chef whose work will inspire generations to come."--NORMAN D.
