Baked bliss from Austria
Sweet treats that are delicious and easy to make!
Fluffy sponge cakes and crunchy baiser bases, topped with fruit or filled with crèmes – master pattisier Dietmar Fercher reveals how to turn the simplest fresh ingredients like eggs, sugar, butter and a bit of flour into sweet masterpieces. There is no limit to imagination when it comes to frostings, glazes and decorations: they make cake the star of deserts! Whether classic Austrian pastries such as ‘Malakofftorte’ and ‘Esterházyschnitten’, or creations such as his Mother’s Day surprise – Ferchner’s scrumptious recipes are easy to make at home and include special tips from the bakery. This book of sweet delights is perfected with mouth-watering photographs by Konrad Limbeck.
Dietmar Fercher was born 1953 in Carinthia. After learning his trade in Spittal an der Drau, he perfected his knowledge as a pastry chef in Austria and abroad. His career stations included working as the master confectioner at the Kurkonditorei Oberlaa and as head patissier for the Hilton hotels in Vienna and Düsseldorf as well as for the Imperial Hotels and its cafés (Hotel Bristol, Hotel Imperial, Palais Ferstel, Café Central). For more than 20 years, the master patissier’s own Viennese café-patisserie, which has won the Golden Coffeebean award by Gault Millau and Jacobs Coffee, has been the home of his sweet culinary creations.
