    I’ve found the cakes need longer in the oven than the recipes say.

Publishers Text

Exquisite and extravagant sweet creations that take classic desserts in a new direction —from one of Australia's most respected and innovative pastry chefs.

Hailed as Australia's Willy Wonka, Darren Purchese is renowned for his stunning high-end dessert creations. Known as the chef with the tricks, with a scientific approach to food and ingredients, in Lamingtons & Lemon Tart, he turns his eye to the classics, cast with his trademark flair for the home cook who might be ambitious, but also wants to feel that the recipes are within their grasp – and that ingredients can be sourced with ease.

Alongside this line-up of classics, he includes a selection of his favorite modern creations, from Caramelized white chocolate mousse to Explosive raspberry wagon wheels; Lemon meringue pie éclair; Canneles; Passionfruit clouds; and his big-selling Popcorn and honeycomb rubble. And, for the breakfast fans, Darren's winning Granola, his take on American pancakes, and the decadent Brioche French toast with cinnamon ice cream.

Recipes are divided across eight chapters (cakes, choux pastry, desserts, snacks, tarts, breakfast, confectionary and frozen dessert), while Darren also takes readers through the basics of what he considers to be "sweet essentials", including batters, confectionary, caramel, pastry, meringues, jellies, and chocolate garnish. Complete with stunning pared back photography, this package will set itself apart as the next big baker's must-haves.
