When I start to conceptualize a dessert I draw from a few different things. One of those things are books. I really enjoy sitting down and reading in my spare time. The only books that manage to hold my attention are cookbooks. I have compiled a short list of books (in no particular order) that inspire me. These books are written by chefs who I truly admire and look up to. The books listed provide a plethora of insight into the world of pastry.
