I don’t know about you but even as a regular baker, pâtisserie makes me feel a bit daunted. Eclairs, macarons, croissants, and so on, all look and sound rather complicated to make. For me, as a busy mum, I never think I can devote enough time to trying out that kind of recipe.
So, I decided to challenge myself to try out some pâtisserie recipes to widen the scope of my baking. Kevin from The Crafty Larder is joining me in hosting our new monthly Perfecting Patisserie blog challenge and linky, where you can link up your pâtisserie bakes and join us as we perfect some new techniques.
Our definition of pâtisserie for the challenge is very wide and also includes viennoiserie e.g. croissants, pastries and so on. Anything you might find in a Pâtisserie cookbook is fine! There is no theme for this month, so do link up any pâtisserie recipes you post in May using the linky below, and check the guidelines below.
