20 years already! To celebrate his porcelain wedding in the rules of the art, Christophe Adam signs an unusual and gourmet ode to one of the flagship cakes of French pastry: the lightning.
Give back to the past the shine of the present. Embracing tradition and creative daring, this talented pastry chef dared to divert the traditional eclair and its choux pastry, with a restricted monochrome range, between coffee and chocolate, to adorn it with a thousand flavors. Chromatic shocks, contrasting textures, gustatory pleasure and visual beauty … Christophe Adam reveals in this book his career and his collection.
200 dazzling eclairs recipes: smooth and frozen versions, granite, sparkling, sparkling, pop, with citrus, red fruits or more exotic. 200 jewels in a box: Cherry raspberry dragee, Fleuri purple mango, Pistachio from Iran, Red kiss, Smoked chocolate …
With a story of the lightning and testimonies of 15 personalities who are benchmarks in the world of pastry ¬ Gilles Marchal, Christophe Felder, Sébastien Gaudard, Benoît Couvrand, Benoît Castel, Isabelle Capron … ¬, this work also invites the reader to slowly savor a contemporary epic.
Authors Christophe Adam, Sarah Vasseghi, and Leslie Gogois
