The Espaisucre Creative Method

Original title: El Método Espaisucre
Category: Gastronomy

The book of the pioneering and prestigious gastronomic method of sweet cuisine that is a reference worldwide.

The Espaisucre Method is a unique, exclusive, nationally and internationally recognized teaching system of high prestige based on three basic principles: the choice of ingredients, technique and presentation.

This book is the guide to this method, where the entire creative process is thoroughly analyzed, and which will help you to understand and order the multiple micro decisions that must be taken at the moment of creation.

The method has been developed for more than twenty years by Jordi Butrón, the alma mater of the school, winner of the award for Best Pastry Chef in Catalonia and the National Gastronomy Award for Best Pastry Chef in Spain, and with the soul of a teacher and a degree in Education. His time at great restaurants such as El Bulli, Pierre Gagnaire, Hotel de Crillon or Michel Bras has allowed him to acquire both a classical and avant-garde training, teachings that he applied to create in 2000 the world’s first dessert restaurant.

This commemorative work of the 20 years of Espaisucre is a veritable immersion in the fabulous world of pastry in a didactic, practical and accessible way for both professionals and amateurs. It presents a complete range of samplings of the main taste associations presented in different formats, demonstrating the ways in which taste can be played with.
