In a fast-changing world, to ADAPT is a key skill to acquire. New dietary requirements demand new ingredients, new concepts and techniques.
This book describes how to use these concepts to adapt pastry recipes.


  • Theory section. Ingredient understanding: A whole Theory Section of the book being dedicated to Ingredient Understanding. Instead of just containing recipes, Richard explains how each ingredient works, and therefore how to successfully substitute in a basic recipe, starting with classic ingredients used in pastry, like gelatin, eggs, butter, to plant-based options like different types of pectins, proteins, etc. You want to make a shortbread without lactose? Replace gelatin or butter in vegan recipes? Or replace gluten in shortbreads and choux pastry? Perhaps macarons without egg whites? There is no shortage of advice. Richard explains the why and how of ingredients and their interactions.

  • Base recipe section. Over 200 basic recipes: This section of the book guides you through over 200 base recipes presented in 4 different options. You will have gluten, gluten-free, lactose-free and vegan versions of shortbreads, sponges, choux pastry, creams, fruit-coulis, mousses, glazes and enrobing, making it easy to translate your most used recipes into versions adapted to each food intolerance.

  • New, comparative recipe design: The new concept of recipe presentation with a comparative layout, helps you understand the differences between gluten, gluten-free, lactose-free and vegan options. Ingredients being presented both in percentages (%) and grams help you to better understand and adapt recipes easier.

  • Inspiration. Signature creations: The final section of the book – recipe inspiration is dedicated to Richard’s beautiful signature creations presented in a simple, elegant style, aiming to inspire you to create unique desserts using basic recipes.
