The Art of Flavor by Amaury Guichon
The Art of Flavor reads like a love story of short passages, dedicated to visual art, travel, and the strategic step-by-step creation of extraordinary desserts. In his first publication of what Chef Amaury Guichon describes as not a cookbook, but “as a way to share my process, my vision of art,” it’s almost impossible not to feel the authentic respect and admiration the internationally renowned chef has for artistic creativity, as magnificently displayed throughout the 324-page culinary journey.
Guichon’s book is truly an art exhibit in book form, showcasing twelve of his favorite and most popular pastry creations through bold imagery and engaging commentary, with detailed recipes for each component of the awe-inspiring finished desserts.
Complete with a glossary of terms of techniques; a list of necessary utensils and essential ingredients, The Art of Flavor is thorough, compelling, and a truly inspiring adventure in flavor. In addition to all the goodness the book already offers, the first 500 copies are autographed by the author himself!
