More than 200 recipes from Gaston Lenotre's classic cookbook, fully updated for the modern chef and illustrated with spectacular new photography.
The great French culinary master Gaston Lenôtre (1920-2009) opened his first pastry shop with his wife Colette in Normandy in 1945, and another in Paris a decade later, before founding École Lenôtre with his son Alain in 1971, which has trained the world's leading pastry chefs. Lenôtre Paris is a culinary empire-from restaurants and catering, to an international network of bakeries and culinary education centres - it embodies French savoir vivre and savoir faire. First published in French, this classic reference has been translated into English, German, Japanese, and Danish. Two of Lenôtre's children participated in this updated edition: Sylvie Gille-Naves, who developed several cookbooks with her father, along with Alain Lenôtre and his wife Marie, who together founded the Culinary Institute Lenôtre in Houston, Texas, ranked as the best college for culinary arts in America by Niche.
