Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It had been a while that I was trying to get my hand on a copy of Ripe for Dessert and Room for dessert (which are currently out of print). Imagine how I was pleased when Mr Lebovitz announced on his blog he was going to release a new cookbook, basically a mix of those two books, some new recipes and that he had reworked all the old recipes ?

I must say first of all, those who dislike "chatty" books, this might not be for you. Each recipe starts with a small talk about how the recipe came to be. Or any funny fact he encountered while creating and testing it. It often contains tips on what to do / what to avoid to achieve success. I personnaly follow the blog of David, so I find this part informative and enjoyable. Others might not.

Here is a short description of what the book contains:

Page 1 to 21 includes introduction, a talk on ingredients, and equipment. You can see the man is real passionnate about what he does, as he speaks (almost lovingly) about soft and creamy lumps of butter, amazing chocolate, heavenly toasted nuts, exotic spices and so on. I know lots of people think that when an author says "use the best", they think they're acting snobby and are being turned down, or some other crazy misconception.

Let me tell you this folks, there is one basic rule in the kitchen: you cannot have an outstanding finished product if you don't use outstanding starting ingredients. It's as simple as that. There is an understanding here that not everyone can afford (or simply find !) everything, like fresh vanilla beans. I used the fake stuff for years, and I didn't die. However, once you move on to real extract, or the actual beans, you're going to understand why so much people put as much emphasis on the quality first.

Really really good recipe books are hard to find... This one is excellent. Have made a good number of recipes and all were big hits. Great explanations and a nice personal intro to each recipe. Highly recommended.

I bought this as a gift for my daughter who is a fantastic baker and cook. She immediately picked out and marked several items to try. It has unique recipes we had never seen before and look forward to trying many of them.

Dans ce livre, Lebovitz a mis ses desserts favoris... Je n'en ai essayé que quelques-uns jusqu'à maintenant et wow! Les brownies et les glaces de cet homme sont mes préférés jusqu'à maintenant. C'est maintenant rendu ma référence quand j'ai besoin d'une idée dessert!
