Thursday 6th October
Topping & Company Booksellers of Bath, York Street, Bath, Somerset BA1 1NG
Julie Jones, the wonderfully inspiring pastry chef, food stylist, influencer and author of the beautiful baking books, Soulful Baker and The Pastry School. Renowned for her artistic decorative flair & pastry knowledge she teaches workshops for pastry decorating and is often here in Bath at Bertinet School.
Art in Pastry – the book we have all been waiting for – begins with basic recipes for sweet and shortcut pastry, which can then be used in the recipes for pies and tarts that follow, featuring a wide range of delicious sweet and savoury fillings. She illustrates how everything can be adapted to variety of decorative approaches. The recipes can be used for a large square or round pie, or six smaller pies, according to your needs. In total there are more than a hundred decorative pies and tarts to feast your eyes on. There are particularly delicious recipes for a Broderie Anglaise lemon tart, a basket-weave feta pie, floral white chocolate tarts and a cod & chorizo pie inspired by antique tiles.
With exquisite photography by Andrew Montgomery of both the food and the inspiration behind it.
This will be an inspiring and informative evening for all bakers.
