The ‘Cobalt Collection’ is showcased in a short film starring New York based musician Njena Reddd Foxxx who models the three looks - drop, flow and settle. Njena twists, turns and bends to a clip of her track ‘Water Colours’.

THE NEW PÂTISSIERS - OUT NOW!

And number 3!!! The new Pâtissiers published by Thames & Hudson.

Yes, I keep exploring CRAFT in all its facets.
Pastry making is after all about designing & hand-making, as jewellery making, wood carving, screen printing etc. are.

It is out now worldwide and of course online.

Join the Facebook page and like it, if you enjoy baking, exploring new recipes, facing a bit of a challenge..eating cakes!!!

<www.facebook.com/thenewpatissiers?ref=hl>

I have gathered 38 pastry chefs across 17 countries (as exotic as Bali, Venezuela, Argentina..) and selected 89 recipes (from classic pastry making to more conceptual).

All 89 recipes have been entirely formatted, translated investigated, discussed with the chefs, and above all TASTE TESTED by 3 amateurs (that includes me!)

Each recipe provides detailed info in all Metric / Imperial and US cup, as well as C°/F°, cm/inch conversions..and much more.

and for the USA market a different cover below:
