With bakeware, it’s important to have a mixture of tradition and innovation. Tradition helps because decades of experience tells you what works and what doesn’t with different recipes. Being willing to innovate means that you get the benefit of cutting-edge materials and science too. At Williams-Sonoma, that’s our goal: to give you awesome results that are consistent and easy to obtain. Our de Buyer bakeware collection combines over 180 years of experience, French influences and modern technology. Want to turn your kitchen into a charming Parisian bakery? de Buyer bakeware is one way to make it happen. Here are a few possibilities.
There are a lot of classic French pastries that are rising in fame in the United States. Preparing most of them isn’t difficult. They also wow guests instantly and make you feel like you’re sitting in front of a small coffee shop on the Champs-Élysées. One moist delight is called a bouchon. What is it? A bouchon – which literally means “cork” in French – is a palm-sized dessert that tastes a lot like a brownie; but a brownie taken to another level of elegance. Bouchons have an intense chocolate flavor paired with a soft texture. Decorate them with powdered sugar or drizzle on some sauce for a double shot of chocolate.
What are the advantages of silicone pans for French delicacies and American classics? For one thing, silicone is extremely lightweight and flexible. It’s easy to carry and store. It’s also durable and simple to clean afterwards. You can use silicone molds with virtually any recipe, anywhere: in the oven, microwave, fridge and freezer. Baked goods slide out effortlessly since you can invert the mold if needed.
What are some other French pastries that are chic and exotic? Macarons – not to be confused with macaroons, which taste completely different – contain heavenly merengue and almonds. They use two cookies sandwiched together with jam, buttercream or another tasty filling in between. Their signature is the bright use of colors in presentation, like red, green and other tones.
French madeleines combine the best parts of cookies and cake in one. Madeleines are shaped like a small cookie, but with the moist texture of coffee cake. They accompany tea or coffee naturally. For extra luxury, you can dip them in chocolate or sugar.
Brioche is a favorite of sweet desserts, though the bread itself doesn’t actually contain much sugar. It has a creamy, buttery, flaky and golden goodness. The crust breaks apart tenderly and practically melts in your mouth. Brioche is wonderful with fresh fruit and citrus recipes.
Any kind of Parisian treat also makes a great gift for friends and family. You can wrap a batch up in a woven basket with a bow and it seems like it came fresh from the other side of the world. Specialty molds for these pastries are also beloved presents for loved ones with a flair for baking.
