Classic Home Desserts
A Treasury of Heirloom and Contemporary Recipes From Around the World
From the publisher
For this collection — first published in 1994 and unmatched in the field of dessert cookbooks — Richard Sax devoted more than a decade to searching out and perfecting 350 of the world’s best and most beloved home desserts. Everything the cook longs for is here: cobblers and crisps, cakes and cookies, puddings and soufflés, pies and pastries, ice creams and sauces. Extensive sidebars — profiles of cooks, engaging recollections of favorite desserts, quotations from hundreds of literary works, and excerpts from fascinating old recipes — make this an indispensable, lively volume.
