La Pâtisserie des Rêves

A cookery from the renowned Parisian bakery and confectionery, known internationally for excellence in traditional French pastries and desserts.

La Pâtisserie des Rêves (translating literally as The Patisserie of Dreams) is the name of the world famous French pastry shops; the brainchild of pastry chef Philippe Conticini and entrepreneur and hotelier Thierry Teyssier, who wanted to open a patisserie that would recreate the excitement children feel about fresh cakes. Their recipe book of the same name published in French in 2012, and is now available in English. The book contains over seventy recipes for their signature pastries, including recipes for the traditional Saint Honoré (choux pastry, cream and caramel topping) and Paris-Brest (choux pastry with praline cream and praline sauce), as well as many more French classics and modern twists.

La Pâtisserie des Rêves is one of the most beautiful cookbooks you will ever encounter . . . exceptional.” —Cooking By the Book
