Whether attempting the elusive perfect tart crust or the ever-vexing handmade puff pastry, making from-scratch pastry is the baker's pinnacle of achievement-and arguably the most challenging of all skills. In Pastry, renowned British baker Richard Bertinet demystifies the art of handmade pastry for aspiring bakers of all abilities. Using crystal-clear instructions, step-by-step photography, and fail-proof weight measurements for ingredients, Bertinet teaches readers how to make the four different types of pastry-savory, sweet, puff, and choux-and shares 50 rustic, mouthwatering recipes.

Richard Bertinet is a James Beard Award-winning author and the owner of the Bertinet Kitchen cookery school in Bath, England, which draws attendees from all over the world. He lives in England.
