"Sourdough Panettone and Viennoiserie" is a complete treatise on the subject of sweet leavened doughs, fermented with natural leaven. The book is divided into three main parts: Theory, Practice and Recipes.
The "Theory" chapter provides a hitherto unprecedented understanding of the phenomena at play: evolution of the bacterial flora during production, the role of the minority bacteria, the production of dextrins, etc. Several scientific studies shed new light on the subject. The author also presents the basics of the universal method that will enable you to create your own recipes for sourdough pastries.
The "Practical" chapter enables everyone to familiarize themselves with the basic equipment and techniques. You will find essential and concrete information: where to buy your moulds, your flour, etc. Numerous step-by-step instructions guide the reader from managing the leavening, through the kneading and shaping stages, right up to the confectioning of the fruit.
Finally, the "Recipes" section offers you more than 20 highly detailed recipes for sourdough: panettone, croissant, brioche, kouglof, etc. With the participation and recipes of the world's greatest chefs: Ezio Marinato, Mauro Morandin, Alfonso Pepe, Daniel Jorda, Miquel Saborit, Christophe Louie, Emmanuel Revuz and Roy Shvartzapel!
The book offers several levels of reading. It is intended for professionals and passionate amateurs.
