Flowers is the latest French patisserie cookbook from award-winning French pastry chef Cédric Grolet.
 
After the success of his books Fruit: The Art of Pastry and Opéra Pâtisserie, French pastry sensation Cédric Grolet has written a new book of haute-cuisine pastry entirely devoted to flowers.
 
In Flowers, Grolet gives an extra dimension to the classic bouquet of flowers by making it an edible gift. Playing with colors, shapes, and ingredients, Grolet finds flowers are an infinite source of inspiration. He combines gourmet recipes with the artistry of piping to create original cakes and tarts in the shape of flowers. The recipes are simple and can be made with minimal equipment—a pastry bag and tip are sufficient. All that is required is patience and skill.
 
Guided by illustrated step-by-step directions, you will be able to express your own creativity through the ingredients, whether a Chantilly cream or a ganache. By piping uniform curves, you will be able to shape a flower that is different each time. Discover more than 80 recipes for cakes, tarts, and entremets, presented by season in a wide range of edible flowers. The rest is up to you!
 
Cédric Grolet was named the World’s Best Pastry Chef. He is executive pastry chef at Restaurant Le Meurice Alain Ducasse in Paris and at his shops, La Pâtisserie du Meurice and Cedric Grolet Opéra.

"Challenged to innovate, and hoping to shake things up . . . when the fork plunged in, concentric layers of cake, cream and silky fruit purée were revealed, a flavor bomb of heightened color, texture and taste. By wrapping the results in hypermodern culinary craft, Grolet took a tradition of trompe l’oeil fruit dating back to 12th century Sicily and made it new."
