Lately I have a hankering to experiment with patisserie style cakes. I'm not sure the exact name, but multi layered, perfect looking, dacquoise and sponges and and mousses and glazes, etc. I've seen them a lot on Great British Bake Off. Does anyone know any good cookbooks for this type of baking?

i have a culinary school pastry book that has a lot of those patisserie style cakes and all kinds of baked goods -- it has u.s. and metric so i think that will work across the pond both ways? I think you are in the u.k.?

http://www.amazon.com/Professional-Baking-College-Version-CD-Rom/dp/0471464279/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1442789861&sr=8-5&keywords=professional+baking+booksbooks

this is actually my exact copy with the cd rom i've never used -- just mostly use it for a reference tool maybe something like that? there are other other editions too --

best to you

In addition to the Gisslen book noted above, I can recommend Bo Friburg's professional pastry chef, even though you'd need to scale the recipes way down, but it's good for learning.

Hermes+Greenspan Desserts book is great too.

once I looked at what the show you were talking about was featuring, why not go straight to Mary herself since she's offering them?

Check out the Parliaros videos on YouTube. He is a celebrated Greek patissier whose recipes are spot on. His name is spelled Παρλιάρος in Greek.
