Technical pastry notions
For many people the recipe is everything.
If you really want to improve your skills, however, you should not limit yourself to following a recipe: as much as it can help you achieve good results, a recipe is something of an end in itself, a tool that allows you to be a perfect maker.
What makes you go beyond recipes is the knowldge of raw materials and ingredients, of methods and techniques, of chemical and physical reactions.
Trusting it will save you time and you will not have to “roam around” the website, I have collected here all my posts about raw materials, ingredients, methods and techniques.
Have a nice dessert…without recipe!
