There are desserts and then there are desserts....All of Nancy Silverton's are outstanding. Gourmet magazine has described Nancy Silverton's desserts as "dazzling," and in this beautifully illustrated new book, containing over 200 of her most luscious recipes, she shares years of experience as pastry chef at Spago and Chinois in California and, most recently, at Maxwell's Plum in New York City. "He who advances to the hot fruit tart has glimpsed paradise," reports one food critic. Others wax rhapsodic over her chocolate terrine-"legendary"-her chocolate truffle cake, her cognac mousse cake, her lemon tart, her puree of fresh peaches in almond crust, her gossamer tuiles and lemon sable cookies, her rice tart with mangoes, and her 'indescribably delicious individual hot apple pie, which is not to be confused with Mom's apple pie" (Gourmet). Now chefs at home can prepare elegant, mouth-watering desserts by following Nancy Silverton's precise, step-by-step instructions. This extraordinary collection of classic and new desserts is sure to win further accolades for its author.
