In Nostalgic Delights, award-winning chocolatier William Curley aims to recreate childhood memories and times gone, taking classic recipes and modernising them with his own, unique creations.
Creating top-quality confectionery, cakes and ptisserie is often seen as something only a trained professional can do. However, with ptisserie equipment now easily accessible to all, William hopes to produce a book where the reader can create classics at home and evoke their own nostalgic memories.
William s ethos centres around using the best ingredients and techniques available, while making his recipes accessible to the home cook. Some recipes are simple to make with minimal ingredients, such as the Hazelnut Rocher and Bakewell tarts.
During the 70s and 80s, the convenience food market boomed, and changed the image of many iconic dishes. William recreates theis decadence once again in many of these recipes, such as a Black Forest Gateau or Blackcurrant Cheesecake.
The book also touches on the comfort food that most of us grew up with, whether it be a Jammy Dodger, an Arctic Roll, or a Banana Split - William takes these to a whole other level!

About the Author:

Growing up in a small town in Fife, Scotland, William Curley discovered a passion for gastronomy and began his career with an apprenticeship at Gleneagles Hotel. William then went on to spend many years at numerous Michelin-starred establishments with the most respected chefs and pātissiers in the business including Pierre Koffmann at La Tante Claire, Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons, Marco Pierre White at The Oak Room and Marc Meneau at L'Esperance in France. William subsequently became the youngest ever Chef Pātissier at The Savoy working under Anton Edelman and leading a team of 21 pastry chefs. William s success led to the opening of the first William Curley shop in Richmond in 2004. This led to the launch of the UK s first dessert bar in central London in 2009. His chocolates and patisserie can now be found in the food hall of London s most prestigious department store, Harrods. During 2013, William achieved the MCA (Master of Culinary Arts). It is the highest accolade awarded to chefs in the UK. Making him one of only seven masters in patisserie in Britain.
