Perfecting pâtisserie

Perfecting pâtisserie

Kinnaird, Tim, author

This text is designed and written to help ambitious home cooks take the next steps in cake making. At its simplest patisserie is about building blocks. Building blocks of texture, flavour, and decoration. The components are often easily created, but when assembled into a finished cake they give the illusion of overall complexity. With an understanding of the key techniques behind each component, delicious and elegant delights are achievable at home. This book provides you with those tried and tested component recipes and examples of cakes that highlight them

Author note

TIM KINNAIRD is a pastry chef and owner of Macarons & More, which in July 2012 was awarded a Guild of Fine Food Great Taste Award. Tim launched the company after reaching the finals of BBC One’s MasterChef 2010.
Tim’s love of food was evident at a young age. He taught himself to cook but was influenced by his parent’s enthusiasm for food and his mum’s Good Housekeeping cookbook for children! While he began by making the Sunday family teatime cake he now enjoys the challenge of complex patisserie.
Following MasterChef, Tim moved into a full-time career in food. His successful and awardwinning business sells his now famous macarons online. Tim and his team also produce a range of other fine patisserie and confectionery.
Tim remains part of the MasterChef family, appearing regularly at the BBC Good Food shows demonstrating patisserie and running the Macarons & More stand. Tim’s recipes have featured in two of the MasterChef recipe books.
