Overview

Master baker Éric Kayser reveals the secret of his marvelous creations, and provides innovative and delicious ways of incorporating bread into a variety of main courses, accompaniments, and desserts.With much flair and the hand of a practiced baker, he presents his collection of sixty surprising and easy-to-follow recipes, transforming bread into a condiment in recipes such as Stuffed Mussels, Breadcrumbs with Curry, or Sausage Crumble, or the main ingredient of a dish as in Chicken with Raisin Bread Stuffing. Kayser uses bread as a plate or bowl for his bruschetta, tapas, soup, and Roasted Vegetable Salad. He reinvents the humble sandwich and offers new versions of open-faced tartine sandwiches, whether classic Foccacio with Sesame Seeds or exotic Tandoori Chicken. Rounding off this collection are irresistible desserts that are pure treasures of sweetness, such as French Toast with Caramelized Apples, Chocolate Soup, and Toasted Brioche.
