About the Author

Lauren Chattman is a former pastry chef, a cookbook author, and an ardent home baker. As a mother of two small children, and with formal pastry training and restaurant experience, she has made a career out of translating upscale food trends into easy recipes that can be made at home, realistically and without stress, and enjoyed by the entire family.

After earning her Ph.D. in English and teaching for two years at Yale University, Chattman moved to New York City with her husband and newborn daughter and enrolled in a professional pastry and baking program at The Institute for Culinary Education. Upon completion of an apprenticeship under François Payard at Restaurant Daniel, Chattman was hired as pastry chef at the prestigious Nick and Toni’s restaurant in East Hampton, New York. She now develops her desserts in her own kitchen and focuses on making use of her store of tips, tricks, and shortcuts that enable busy cooks and bakers to create high-quality, family-pleasing food without a lot of fuss.

Chattman is the best-selling author of several cookbooks. She is also the co-author, with Roland Mesnier, of Roland Mesnier’s From Basic to Beautiful Cakes and Dessert University. Her recipes have appeared in Bon Appétit, Cook’s Illustrated, Metropolitan Home, Redbook, and The New York Times. She has appeared on Today and QVC, demonstrating her knack for making delicious desserts in record time, and has been a spokesperson for Jif peanut butter and Pillsbury refrigerated cookie dough.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book but... May 4 2009
By D. Kruaysiriwong - Published on Amazon.com
This book is good in term of simplicity. But there's one big problem (for me). Most of the recipes in this book don't have any picture. You might have no idea what the final product should look like. I think that's kinda bad because one picture for one recipe should be the minimum requirement for a cook book!!!

Any library with a strong general dessert cookbook section will find this an eye-catching winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Presentations and Yummy! June 2 2009
By Littlebits - Published on Amazon.com
I made the Winter Pudding Cake. I had no cake pans so had to buy some. I bought 8 pans and only made one cake. What can I say I got carried away. The ingredients were all in the grocery store. I used Sara Lee Pound Cake rather than to bake one. The cake was not only delicious but pretty. My guests loved it. They started out saying they were only going to eat just one sliver of a slice. By the time our get together was over the whole cake was gone. Total success.
