In this new work, Stéphane Leroux, Meilleur Ouvrier de France Pâtissier (master craftsman of France for patisserie) pays homage to praliné, the gastronomical heritage of French origin and one of the most noble raw materials involved in patisserie and chocolate making. Thanks to its broad spectrum of textures and tastes, using praliné inspires the creativity of patissiers, chocolate makers and other craftsmen in confectionery; while at the same time it is beneficial for our health due to the dried fruits it contains. After having traced the history of praliné and explained how it is made, Stéphane Leroux presents several basic recipes for pralinés (using light or dark almonds or hazelnuts, sesame seeds, pine nuts, walnuts, etc.). He then offers a variety of recipes using praliné in tarts and cakes, desserts, chocolate and confectionery, snacks and bars, and fours secs... he finally concludes by showing some basic decorations, explained clearly in stages with illustrations. Thanks to Romy Tembuyser's magnificent photographs, Stéphane Leroux succeeds in sharing his passion; his readers will be filled with wonder as they turn the pages of this book.

"I think, therefore I am", Descartes wrote in the seventeenth century. As a result of all that thinking, our society has changed spectacularly. But in our success in designing space shuttles and robots, and in living our lives with ever increasing efficiency, we have somehow started overlooking the fact that people are made up of much more than just their minds.
The unexpected downside of society's frantic progress and its focus on reason is that many people are left feeling stressed and empty. Both at work and at home, they are confronted with huge levels of expectation that they simply cannot meet. The time has come to rediscover one's true self.
By asking the right questions, this book will help you find out who you really are, to define what motivates you and what you stand for. It will allow you to develop the necessary resilience to direct the story of your life, even during difficult times.
