The finest confections and patisserie ? Bernd Sieferts? creations are works of art: innovative, modern, exceptional and a true delicacy. The first volume of the Sweet Gold series covers cakes, desserts and decorative sugar pieces. But not just any ? these are Bernd-Siefert creations with humble names such as ?Mexico?, which gives little indication of the fact that this is a dessert made of baked coconut froth with caramelised muscat bananas and a sorbet of quark, chilli and mango. If you think you know your chocolate cakes then you should get to know Bernd Siefert?s Chocolate Cake Valencia: an airy almond brittle sponge base with a couverture coating, fresh orange cream and chocolate praline mousse that melts on your tongue, covered with ?Noir?, a superb chocolate icing. His creations are a fireworks display of tastes: exciting, unusual, but also complementary and in harmony with each other. Last not least it is Bernd Siefert?s decorative sugar pieces that make this book so exceptional: The filigree stork on his nest of sugar twigs is a work of art, the orange/lavender/truffle sculpture is reminiscent of Dali and Picasso ? 12 examples of how to blow, pull and model sugar professionally.
