    Pastry Cookbooks and Recipes


    Pastry Pastry are baked foods made from dough, the dough being made from flour, the flour typically being made from a combination of flour, butter, shortening, baking powder and eggs. The dough may be sweetened or unsweetened - the key different from bread, is that pastry has a higher fat content which gives it a crumbly texture.

    Some popular pastry recipes and dishes include:
    • Apfel strudel - This is an Austrian recipe. It is a pastry filled with apples, sugar and raisins. Sometimes cinnamon or rum is also added to the filling in order to enhance the flavor.

    • Bakewell tart - This is a traditional British recipe. It consists of a pastry shell, filled with jam (fruit preserve) and a sponge-like filling.

    • Baklava - Baklava is a sweet pastry dessert made with phyllo dough, and filled with chopped walnuts or pistachios, and sweetened with syrup or honey. It is found in Greek cuisine, Cypriot cuisine, Turkish cuisine, and the cuisine of a number of other countries in the Balkans and eastern Mediterranean.

    • Boeregs - Boeregs are savory pies made from phyllo pastry that originate in Armenian cuisine. Boeregs usually have spicy fillings, which may include cheese, spinach or ground beef.

    • Éclair - This is a famous French recipe. It is made from hollow baked pastry, which allowed to cool, and then filled with pastry cream (crème pâtissière), custard or whipped cream, and finally topped with chocolate.

    • Gözleme - This is a Turkish recipe for savory pastry. It is made made by thinly rolling dough and repeatedly folding. It is then filled and browned in a pan. There are many different variations, each with their own names, including Etli (containing a meat filling), Ispanakli (containing spinach), Karisik (containing mixed filling), Katmer (plain with non filling), Kiymali (containing ground lamb), Mantarli (containing mushrooms), Patatesli (containing mashed potatoes) and Peynirli (containing feta cheese).

    • Kanelbulle - This recipe comes from Swedish cuisine. It is a pastry roll flavored with cinnamon.

    • Melktert - The name of this South African dish means "milk tart" in Afrikaans. It is made by filling a pastry crust with a creamy filling made from milk, flour, sugar and eggs. Cinnamon is sometimes sprinkled on the surface.

    • Qaghaq ta' l-Ghasel - This is a famous Maltese recipe. It is a light pastry ring made with honey or treacle. The dish was originally eaten during the Christmas period, but nowadays is eaten all year round.

    Product Description:
    Stunning recipes for patisserie, desserts and savories with a contemporary Japanese twist. This elegant collection is aimed at the confident home-cook who has an interest in using ingredients such as yuzu, sesame, miso, and matcha.

    The concept of fusion in food can be magical—when cuisines and cultures collide, combining flavors, ingredients, and methods from around the world creates new classics, the best of which become staples in our everyday lives. Trends like Japanese Matcha in our lattes, Korean kimchi in our burgers and Thai Sriracha hot sauce on—well everything—prove that our love-in with Asian cuisine is thriving. Tokyo is now considered a food-forward city, currently boasting 15 three Michelin-starred restaurants (compared to France's 10). Over the past 20 years there has been a surge in celebrated French patisserie chefs moving to Japan to open fine patisseries. The art of French patisserie appeals very much to the Japanese culture—both share values of beauty, precision, and care within cooking. This book features 60 recipes, from reinvented classics to stunning Patisserie creations made achievable to the home-cook. The chapters will be broken into Small Cakes & Individual Patisserie, which will include Lemon & Yuzu Éclairs. Sweet Tarts will offer delights such as Miso Butterscotch Tarts and the Large Cakes & Gateaux section offers celebration cakes like a Matcha & Pistachio Opera. In the Desserts section find dinner party classics with Japanese twists such as White Sesame & Adzuki Cheesecake. The Cookies & Confectionery chapter is full of fun treats like Sesame Peanut Butter Cookies and a Green Tea chocolate candy bar. To finish, some mouth-watering savory recipes such as Panko Donuts stuffed with Pork Katsu. A flavor matrix will helpfully map key characteristics of Japanese ingredients.

    Product Description:

    Do your cakes collapse, soufflés slump, cookies crumble, and fruit pies fail? For those living at high altitude, baking can be a challenge at best, or a total disaster. More than thirty-four of the fifty United States, plus many Canadian regions, have cities and towns at altitudes of more than 2,500 feet, yet there are hardly any cookbooks that address the special needs of these local bakers. Until now. Award-winning cookbook author Susan G. Purdy has finally written the first-ever foolproof guide to high-altitude baking.

    Purdy has actually "gone there and done that," staying as long as it took to bake these recipes to perfection at five different locations -- and elevations -- across thecountry. In Pie in the Sky, Purdy leaves behind old conversion tables, disproves many oft-repeated calculations and adjustments, and presents reliable recipes in their entirety for each altitude. She takes out the tinkering and guarantees success at any height.

    In addition, she explains the hows and whys, gives tips and hints for problems specific to every altitude, and generally demystifies the subject of atmospheric obstacles that cause favorite recipes to flop. Whether they live in the eastern mountains or the far west, in Boston, Massachusetts; Boone, North Carolina; or Santa Fe, New Mexico; home bakers as well as experienced chefs will love the wide range of easy-to-make treats including Mile-High Lemon Meringue Pie, Coconut Cake with Coconut Icing, Paradise Peak Chocolate Soufflé, Vail Lemon-Poppy Seed Loaf, Celestial Challah, and Sour Cream Streusel Coffee Cake.

    Every recipe was tested at sea level (Connecticut), 3,000 feet (North Carolina and Virginia), 5,000 feet (Idaho and Colorado), 7,000 feet (New Mexico), and 10,000 feet (Colorado) and can be used at these elevations or any points in between.
