A unique way of seeing and thinking, and an attention to detail are what shape Chef Janice Wong's inventive desserts - creations applauded by some of the world's most celebrated chefs from French chocolatier-patissier Pierre Herme to Spanish chef-restauranteurs Juan Mari and Elena Arzak. Through this book, the creative mind behind 2am: dessertbar invites you to enter her world. It is a world where beauty is everything, where no detail is too small to appreciate. This is not an ordinary cookbook. It is an exploration of the mind and senses, of perceptions and emotions. The chapters - Origins of Taste, Colours of Taste, Textures of Taste and Memories of Taste - explore the inspirations behind each of her creations, be it the unique, natural flavour of an ingredient, a distinct hue that evokes an emotion, an unexpected texture that jolts the senses, a nostalgic taste that allows the mind to wander back to childhood days. These seemingly disparate sources of inspiration and the creations that stem from them are all threaded by a commonality, a pursuit for perfection in imperfection, and an appreciation of imperfection in perfection. Welcome to Janice Wong's artistic, gastronomic world of flawless imperfection and flawed perfection.
