Le Petit Manuel De La Bûche - Mélanie Dupuis
Make your log like a pastry chef!
Thanks to Le Petit Manuel De La Bûche, you'll understand and learn all the basics and tips for making logs and iced logs like a real pastry chef. In this book, Mélanie Dupuis, who delighted us a few years ago with her sublime Manuel du Pâtissier, reveals all her secrets for finally mastering the subtle art of the log.
Mélanie explains all the basics involved in making a log: cookies, ganache, icing, assembly... everything is presented through infographics to help you understand each technique and preparation. You'll learn how to make almond cookies, sponge biscuits, pain de gènes and dacquoise, as well as why the volume of a cookie is reduced during baking, and how to maintain a soft texture. You'll also learn how to make different fillings: vanilla mousse, butter or custard cream, Italian or Swiss meringue, ganache montée, chocolate crumble, etc., before moving on to the step you always find a little tricky: icing and decorating. Yes, we all dream of making that famous mirror icing, so shiny it almost dazzles us! Well, thanks to this book, that dream is about to come true, as Mélanie Dupuis reveals her tips for making perfect logs.
Once you've mastered all these basics, it's time to get down to business with the 40 log recipes created by Mélanie Dupuis. From the most classic like the praline, choc intense, red fruit or lemon meringue log, to the most original like the raspberry - yuzu - matcha, pink grapefruit - raspberry log, or the extraordinary chestnut - blackcurrant log in the shape of a fir tree. So many recipes to surprise and amaze your guests at your next festive meal.
