Default Book recommendation

Can anyone suggest a book, that hopefully would be available in Australia,
about the techniques and methods of pastry cooking. A few recipes for
illustration purposes would be OK but it must be strong on the how-to, not
assume that you already know that.

Hi! Try the "French Professional Pastry Series" (4 volumes) available from
Amazon.com or if by any chance out of print, try abebooks.com. It's an
excellent resource of techniques (and pictures) and you can REALLY learn
from them. I own lots of books these are perhaps the most valuable! They are
a bit pricey though, but believe me worth every cent. Also try "Baking" by
Wayne Gisslen, or the "Professional Pastry Chef" and "The Advanced
Professional Pastry Chef" both by Bo Friberg. Hope that helps!

These books mentioned by Stiko is available in Australia from
GK Culinary Books
Books-Retail

Unit 13 13-17 Kelly Avenue Moorabbin VIC 3189
Tel: (03) 95552195 Fax: (03) 95552195

Another related book which is as important is from the Culinary
Institute of America titled Baking and Pastry (Matering the Art and
Craft) which I think is avaiable also in that bookstore.
It is also available in The Essential Ingredient located in Prahran
Mebourne
