'Dessert Fourplay'

Recommended Posts

I found this website for a cookbook publisher/development house called Tasty Central.com

http://www.tastycentral.com/projects.html

They listed this book, coauthoured by Roy Finamore.

Being extremely interested I tried to contact roy but to no avail.

Any help/info will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Didn't know anything about it. Spoke with Johnny at Jean Georges a couple of months ago and he didn't mention it. Looking forward to it, though. He's a real talent. Both Jean Georges and Nougatine have some of the best desserts in town.

Off topic but necessary to explain...

"Talk to me" is this expression this pretty well known chef I used to work for/with always said/says as he barrels into the kitchen.

Doesn't matter what's going on, he'll always say, in varying degress of volume, cadance, expression, "TALK TO ME!!!", to the room at large, always cracks me up to even think about it..

It's worn off on me :biggrin:

But here, when I use it, I'm usually trying to encourage lurkers to speak up, and in this case, all of the NYC pastry people who read this thing.

Thanks for the replies.

I'm talking.  Well, asking---are the dishes under the "s'mores" chocolate as well?

I didn't notice 'till you pointed it out.

It kind of looks like chocolate under Lincoln Carsons 'Caramel S'mores' on a couple of racks.

I was at this event last year. Some pretty tasty stuff, his PB& J chocolates rocked. I havent tasted anything like it except for Jaques Torres'.

The evening was great, great food, great company.... Dairyland put out some spread.

Christophe Toury made a sushi style roll out of marshmallow and coconut (thats whats in those green chinese take out boxes)


"Chocolate has no calories....

Chocolate is food for the soul, The soul has no weight, therefore no calories" so said a customer, a lovely southern woman, after consuming chocolate indulgence

ahem, I believe it's "talk to me" :biggrin:

If you're talking about the tasty central link, I just went there and was able to survey everything, don't know what the problem was/is.

Cheers,

I've been waiting a long time for this one, looking forward to it. Now if Michael Laiskonis would do a book, I'd be really happy. I've kinda lost hope for a Sam Mason book but it still sits at the top of my list of wish-books.

Didn't Michael Laiskonis suggest in his most recent blog post that he is planning a book? I wholeheartedly agree that books from both him and Sam Mason would be great.

I'd like to invite anybody who would like to meet Johnny Iuzzini to stop by our showroom on January 12th.

He will be chatting and signing copies of his book.

That's JB Prince at 36 E. 31st Street in Manhattan between 3:00 & 5:00 on Monday, January 12th.

Thanks. Hope to see you there.

I got my copy yesterday and have been paging through it all day. I can honestly say I love this book! As a Culinary student at CIA, this book has singlehandedly made me think about staying and getting my Baking & Pastry certificate.

The one gripe I have is a very minor one. As I was reading the testimonials on the back, I saw names like Harold McGee, Daniel Boulud, Wylie Dufresne, Francois Payard...and then there was Paula Deen, with her testimonial starting with "Y'all". I can't help but feel that was thrown on there solely to appeal to housewives.

That was indeed odd. My gripe is on the typeface used in the recipe notes. The lowercase "s" really is irritating.

Seriously? :blink:

He does go on Martha Stewart a lot.

I mean he even was on Tony Danza once...

I just received my copy and can I say - this may be the first book that does what people say IPods do for them. Its like he was reading my mind. I can't wait to start playing...I'll skip ahead to the Modern menus if you don't mind :biggrin:

Mine came today also.

Everything about it is super solid.

I would presume some of these recipes are from the website and the website recipes ( and the 'site as a whole) always work.

A great job, well worth the wait IMO...

      Posted 6 hours ago Dear EGulleters,
      ResearchBunny here. I've just found you today. I've been lolling in bed with a bad cold, lost voice, wads of tissues, pillows, bedding around me. I spent all of yesterday binge-watching Season 2 of Zumbo's Just Desserts on Netflix from beginning to grand finale. I have been a hardcore devotee of Rose Levy Beranbaum since the beginning of my baking passion -- after learning that she wrote her master's thesis comparing the textural differences in cake crumb when using bleached versus unbleached flour. I sit up and pay attention to that level of serious and precision! While Beranbaum did study for a short while at a French pastry school, she hasn't taken on the challenge of writing recipes for entremets style cakes. That is, multi-layer desserts with cake, mousse, gelatin, nougatine or dacquoise layers all embedded in one form embellished with ice cream, granita, chocolate, coulis. After watching hours of the Zumbo contest, I became curious about the experience of designing these cakes. Some of the offered desserts struck me as far too busy, others were delightful combinations. I was surprised that a few contestants were eliminated when their offerings were considered too simple or, too sophisticated. So I'd like to hear from you about your suggestions for learning more about how to make entremets. And also, what you think about the show. And/or Zumbo.
      Many thanks.
      RB
      ps. The show sparked a fantasy entremet for my cold. Consider a fluffy matzo ball exterior, with interior layers of carrot, celery, a chicken mince, and a gelatin of dilled chicken broth at its heart!

      After batting about .500 with my previous approach to macarons, I came across Pierre Herme's base recipe online.  After two flawless batches of macarons, I've been re-energized to continue to work at mastering them.  Specifically, I want to try more of his recipes.  My conundrum is that he has, as far as I can tell, two macaron cookbooks and I don't know which one I should get.  I can't tell if one is just an updated version of the other or a reissue or what the differences really are.  I was hoping somebody had some insight.  I have searched online and haven't seen both books referenced in the same context or contrasted at all.
       
      This one appears to be older.

       
      And this one appears to be the newer of the two.

       
      Any insight would be helpful.
       
      Thanks,
