    Excerpt from the introduction by Pascal Rigo:

    "Our days begin with bread and pastry, and our life is filled with the aroma of the bakery... My kids breathe in those smells. They see the importance of hard work, the value of respect for the customer, and most of all, the beautiful results that simplicity and authenticity can bring. Those are the gifts I want most to give to them... and I hope this book will also give you a taste of our passion."

    Book Description
    How can one experience the wonderful freshly baked products of a French bakery without visiting France? Simply by following the instructions and guidance of Pascal Rigo, offered here in more than 70 recipes, many illustrated with color photographs. He, along with his crew of bakers and pastry chefs, has poured into this book the secrets of ancient family recipes, the knowledge of experienced professional cooks, and the traditions and techniques of various French regions. The result is chewy, dark, and rich breads like Pain au Levain; light crisp ones like Pain de Épi; buttery croissants to dip into cafe au lait; savory Quiche Lorraine and sweet fruit tarts; as well as tempting desserts including pound cake, poached pears, and Pots de Creme.
