Once comfortable with these, the home baker can go on to tackle the famous and more complex creations--such as Eclairs, Saint-Honore, Opera--as well as feel empowered to explore new and original combinations. An entire chapter is devoted to decoration as well as sauces, syrups, and fillings. Whether used to develop skills or to refine techniques, to gain or simply broaden a repertoire, Patisserie dispels the mystery around classic French pastries, so that everyone can make them at home.
