THE PASTRY CHEF'S LITTLE BLACK BOOK

“The sweet genius of the Little Black Book is that it is broken down into the components that pastry chefs need to make their magic: doughs, cakes, ice cream, mousses, and lots more. Looking for an idea or a new recipe? That’s what this book is for. That’s why pastry chefs need this book.”

– Ron Ben-Israel, TV Personality and Owner of Ron Ben-Israel Cakes

Chef Kirsten Tibbals
