You weren't planning on skipping dessert today, were you? Because you'll be throwing that plan out the window after you feast your eyes on the pastry arts in Yigit Pura's new cookbook trailer. Eater alerts us to this pastry porn, which shows the assembly of a layered crepe cake brulee with poached pears and pistachio-cinnamon brittle in sumptuous, slow-motion, extra-delicious-looking detail.
Sweet Alchemy: Dessert Magic comes out in September from Chronicle Books, and is the Top Chef: Just Desserts winner's first cookbook. Meanwhile, I'll be spending my afternoon resisting the temptation to sneak up to Pura's jewelbox pastry shop, Tout Sweet, in Macy's Union Square, 1.5 blocks from SF Weekly's new offices. (Gotta stay strong. I'm attending a fried chicken pop-up tonight, after all.)
