This is an excellent book for anyone who loves to create desserts. Presented in the friendly, southern Savannah style, it’s fun to read, and even more fun to cook from. Filled with delightful human interest stories to accompany the recipes, it’s entertaining reading even for those of us who just want to “get to the recipe, already”.
As one would expect from a recipe book from this Savannah epicurian restaurant, the book contains many elaborate recipes for delectable confections. The pleasant surprise is that it also contains a wealth of simple desserts, many from just the ingredients typically found on the pantry shelf. What dessert cook is not always looking for special, easy-to-prepare dishes to delight the sweet palette.
Paula Deen does a great job of taking restaurant quantity recipes and cutting them down for home use. In fact, the quantities tend to be small, so feel inclined to double the batch size, because whatever is prepared from this book won’t last long.
The book contains:
– Introduction and Family Story
– Hints & Tips (very good info for even the seasoned chef)
– Cookies & Bars
– Puddings & Custards
– More Sweet Things
– Metric Converter
– Good Index (very important, and annoying when missing from a book)
