“Pâtisserie Gluten Free is remarkable in many ways. First because it brings together in one place dozens of delectable cakes and pastries that have been painstakingly crafted by the hands of a dedicated chef (and thoroughly explained by her excellent and clear writing). Patricia presents us with an expansive array of flavors and textures, and in the aggregate these offer us the potential of months if not years of exploration in our kitchens as we savor the recipes.” —Jeffrey Hamelman, King Arthur Bakery director, from his foreword
French favorites. Patricia’s knowledge of French pastry and her ability to adapt her recipes to a gluten-free format is not only brilliant, but also revolutionary! Having worked closely with Patricia on my own book, I know her attention to detail, and it shows clearly in the pages of this book.” —Shaun O’Neale, MasterChef Season 7 winner
