From the Inside Flap:

A Modernist View of Plated Desserts For diners, the stunning virtuosity of dessert menus orchestrated by today's chefs and restaurateurs has made a meal's grand finale as eagerly awaited as the entrees that precede them. To accompany American pastry's dynamic renaissance, Grand Finales: A Modernist View of Plated Desserts offers an essential compendium of information that enables culinary professionals to keep pace with these remarkable developments. Scores of pastry chefs are now seeking to compose plated desserts that consciously avoid everyday images, and in doing so, have lifted their creations into the realm of artistic discipline. While each chef has his or her individual style, many of their desserts can be classified as Modernist, with technical and artistic demands as challenging as any in the culinary realm. At once absorbingly informative and celebratory, authors Tish Boyle and Timothy Moriarty lead a discussion of how Modernist chefs are redefining dessert, the better to satisfy the insatiable American sweet tooth. Replete with ample illustrations, Grand Finales: A Modernist View of Plated Desserts offers 50 detailed recipes culled from the repetoires of 25 of the country's most accomplished pastry chefs. Their insights and opinions on the diverse aspects of desserts contrast with the straightforward analysis of Boyle and Moriarty, which addresses the major components of a Modernist dessert-from its relationship to classical dessert standards, the fundamental importance of equipment and molds, and the principles of garniture, to the use of sauces and the critical necessity of deft management skills and costing procedures. Thorough, humorous, and comprehensive, Grand Finales: A Modernist View of Plated Desserts is a tempting addition to the ranks of indispensable reference for anyone involved in the art of pastry, or just in love with dessert.
