“The recipe for classic puff pastry is seven pages long. If you want to make a Napoleon or mille-feuille with that puff pastry, it’s an additional four pages. But that’s because the instructions are written so that it’s almost as if Pfeiffer were there next to you telling you exactly what to do each step of the way, and why.”
