'Julie's passion comes from the heart, turning humble pastry into a masterpiece' Richard Bertinet
Julie Jones, Instagram influencer and author of Soulful Baker and The Pastry School conducts online workshops for pastry decorating and this is the book that her followers have been crying out for.
Art in Pastry 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.
Chapters on Fruit, Dairy, Meat & Fish and Vegetables include 40 recipes that can all 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. Recipes include a Broderie Anglaise lemon tart, a basket-weave feta pie, floral white chocolate tarts and a cod & chorizo pie inspired by antique tiles. Every chapter includes exquisite photography by Andrew Montgomery of both the food and the inspiration behind it.
