Most home cooks think of puff pastry as the province of professional chefs and bakers, but Jacques is on a mission to demystify flaky pastry once and for all. He shows Claudine how a single basic puff pastry dough can be turned into everything from hors d'oeuvres to desserts. After creating an elegant first course of Oysters and Asparagus in Puff Pastry Shells, Jacques prepares a fancy main-dish Vol-au-Vent filled with Spicy Chicken and mushrooms. Turning to the sweet side, Jacques and Claudine make a spectacular Strawberry Napoléon—the French answer to strawberry shortcake—as well as two super-easy pastries: a Black Raspberry Jam Dartois Tart and a Flaky Raspberry Strip.
