An Alphabet of Sweets
Daydreams of White Chocolate Creme Anglaise and Rocky Road Fudge come to life in this fanciful book, as the whimsical paintings of American folk artist Nancy Thomas illuminate Desaulniers' recipes with a witty humor matched only by the potentate of patisserie himself. French and Italian classics like truffles and zabaglione are explained thoroughly along with homey upside-down cake, red raspberry grunt, and old-fashioned ice cream - the timeless crowd-pleasers we knew as children. Desaulniers infuses each recipe with a spirited, fresh enthusiasm that will appeal to novices as well as more adventurous cooks. More than a guide to dessert cookery, An Alphabet of Sweets is a delightful read, with clever surprises riddling every page.
