I had the honor and pleasure of working with Bill Yosses many years ago as young chefs at the Polo Restaurant in New York City. Needless to say, he has achieved so much since our early days together. His current work, The Perfect Finish, lives up to his reputation of being in the forefront in the world of pastry today. His interpretation of classic American desserts is timeless in its simplicity and execution-Thomas Keller, the French LaundryFor the past thirty years, Bill Yosses has gained a quiet, unsurpassed celebrity among chefs and pastry enthusiasts. The Perfect Finish is the summation of that career, and it's the most impressive homage to baking I've seen in a long time. It's beautiful-a testament to his flawless artistry. It's practical-organized to suit both the spontaneous and the occasion-specific baker. And it's wise-full of Bill's unimpeachable skill and knowledge. It's perfect, really-an accomplishment that would be remarkable, were it not so predictable-Dan Barber, Blue HillBill Yosses knows how to rise to an occasion. If it is a State Dinner or a simple supper he knows exactly the sweet note it should end on. The Perfect Finish represents Bill's generosity perfectly and shares with the reader a lifetime repertoire of clever tricks and techniques in the pastry kitchen-Alice Waters, Chez PanisseIn The Perfect Finish, legendary pastry chef Bill Yosses has selected eighty of his most spectacular desserts and adapted them for our contemporary lives. The Perfect Finish is playfully organized by the occasions that bring us together. Among this book's unique features: technique notes; explanations of special ingredients; information on how to store and transport desserts; and color pictures of nearly all the beautiful finished desserts. The Perfect Finish is a book for every taste and every experience level, by the most talented pastry chef of his generation.
