Book Description

June 1 2012

MasterChef Australia 2011 winner Kate Bracks knows about desserts. This mouthwatering array of inspired dessert recipes includes favorites such as Apple Pie, Chocolate Cake, and Strawberry Mousse as well as fresh new ideas—such as Kate's Chocolate, Date, and Hazelnut Torte; Raspberry and Pistachio Frozen Nougat; and Vincotto Figs with Caramelised Walnuts and Mascarpone. Kate also puts modern twists on old classics, from her Spiced Crème Brûlée, to her irresistible Peanut Butter and Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches, or her Brown Butter Cheesecake. This is food to weaken even the strongest resolve! The structure of the book is designed to guide the home cook from the "basics"—incorporating basic techniques, such as sauces and syrups; how to make the perfect meringue; make your pastry rather than buy it; how to cook with gelatine—to "beyond the basics" for the more confident cook. And, if you really want to impress, there's a Ramp it Up chapter at the end where all the techniques can be put together to wow your friends and family. There's also a code throughout the book to help you determine which recipes are most suited to your particular cooking desires and ability. Indulge your own sweet tooth with this glorious book of baked treats and dessert recipes from Australia's MasterChef 2011 winner; and don't forget the golden rule—always lick the bowl! Includes dual measures, as well as a list of gluten free, dairy free, and egg free recipes to help readers with specific dietary requirements.

My husband loves bread and butter pudding and I hate it, but this year for Fathers Day I found a compromise, in The Sweet Life is a croissant and berry pudding that is FANTASTIC, so simple and everyone is more than happy!! Something for every dessert lover in this book, I can't wait to cook more!
