Perfection in Imperfection: A Culinary Journey Through the Senses of Janice Wong
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 Hermé to Spanish chef-restaurateurs 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; or 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.
