Darren Purchese, known for his flamboyant, high-end creations, now presents his own take on the classics. Although cast with his trademark flair, the recipes are all designed to be within the grasp of competent home cooks and the ingredients can be sourced with ease.
Alongside this line-up of classics, he includes a selection of his favourites such as caramelised white chocolate mousse, explosive raspberry wagon wheels, lemon meringue pie éclair, passionfruit clouds and his signature honeycomb rubble. As well as recipes across eight chapters (cakes, choux pastry, desserts, snacks, tarts, breakfast, confectionery and frozen dessert) Purchese takes readers through the basics of what he considers to be sweet essentials , including batters, caramel, pastry, meringues, jellies and chocolate ganache.
Pop into the studio and meet Darren, he will personally sign every copy of the book and all purchases at this time will receive a wagon wheel (recipe in book) with a special Easter theme.
