Retracing his longstanding love affair with the versatile cacao bean, this work reveals daring creations that display the celebrated pastry chef s signature innovative style, which has transformed the realm of pâtisserie. It includes thirty-five recipes, from original combinations such as chocolate, banana, and ginger cake or chocolate and lemon madeleines, to rich, iconic desserts like his Infiniment Chocolat Baba Cake, Infiniment Chocolat Macaron, or yuzu-flavored Éclair Azur. Following an intense, synergetic collaboration with photographer Sergio Coimbra, this unique book pays homage to the purity and simplicity of chocolate and its diverse forms and textures. Under Coimbra s lens, every facet of chocolate is captured in its essence, tempting the reader to enjoy the myriad delights that constitute Pierre Hermé s extraordinary chocolate repertoire.
