This cookbook will inspire beginners and experienced home cooks alike to bake as imaginatively as the creator of the Frozen S’More and the Cronut®, the croissant-doughnut hybrid that took the world by storm.
As the Chef/Owner of eponymous bakeries in NYC, LA, London, and Hong Kong, Ansel has shaken up the pastry world with his creativity and innovative approach to desserts. But he couldn't have done it all without the proper foundations - those basic recipes and classic techniques, from how to make tender chocolate cakes to silky custards, buttery shortbread, and more. In this new cookbook, Ansel shares these essential, go-to recipes for the first time with easy-to-follow instructions and kitchen tips that allow home cooks to master the building-blocks of desserts. These crucial components can be mixed in a variety of ways, and Ansel will show you how: his vanilla tart shell can be rolled out and stamped into cookies; shaped and filled with lemon curd; or even crumbled into a topping for ice cream. In Everyone Can Bake: Simple Recipes to Master and Mix, Ansel shares his simple, foolproof recipes for bases, fillings, and finishings so you can mix and match them to create endless possibilities for delicious desserts.
