Pistachier at Len˘tre (page 2 of 2) Home
A pistachio-flavored little cake served with coffee in French gastronomic restaurants. If you get the pistachio paste, you can make it too.
Beat the egg whites into a foam and delicately fold in. Mix gently.
Fill a pastry bag with the mix.
Fill a star-shaped rubber cake pan with the mix, each no more than 3/4 full. If you don't have pastry bags - I don't - then try filling the pan with a spoon and God helps you.
Garnish each cake with a pistachio.
Bake at 160░C for 15 minutes. Len˘tre recommends turning the tray around at midtime to ensure the heat is bestowed evenly on the cakes.
Turn out the pistachiers and let them cool, upside down until you serve. They are best served warm.
A Pastry Class at the Paris Len˘tre school ***
Len˘tre offers high-end non-professional pastry classes in
Paris. Are they worth the time and money? Who attends? What do you
actually learn? Read my account of a Brioche and Kugelhopf class at Len˘tre's school on the Champs-ElysÚes.
Making Your Own Meringues ** Popular
Meringue is the most obvious pastry to bake when you have too many egg whites, and yet many home chefs are frightened to try homemade meringues. See how easy they are if you go by the book.
