“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 RBI Cakes


“Antonio has a unique ability to craft innovative and beautiful tasting products in all aspects of patisserie; which is an extraordinary skill that pastry chefs aspire to yet rarely achieve in this continually changing industry. Bachour the Baker showcases the versatility of his skills and explains all the elements of laminated doughs, croissants and Danish through coherent recipes and beautiful images.”
