Atlanta Classic Desserts

Overview

Don't let the magnolias, the syrupy-slow drawl, and the sweet manners of Atlantans fool you into thinking that the city is a throwback to another era. This metropolis has come a long way since Scarlett uttered those famous cinematic words, "As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again!"

Atlanta is the fastest-growing metropolitan area in the nation and rightly views itself as the leader of a progressive "New South." Unlike many other Southern cities, such as Charleston, ...

Overview

Don't let the magnolias, the syrupy-slow drawl, and the sweet manners of Atlantans fool you into thinking that the city is a throwback to another era. This metropolis has come a long way since Scarlett uttered those famous cinematic words, "As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again!"

Atlanta is the fastest-growing metropolitan area in the nation and rightly views itself as the leader of a progressive "New South." Unlike many other Southern cities, such as Charleston, Savannah, and New Orleans, Atlanta chose not to retain its historic Old South architectural characteristics. Instead, food has become one of Atlanta's most enduring cultural legacies.

Perhaps syllabubs, pandowdies, and ambrosias once ruled here, but the cake has outlasted them all, evolving into ever-more glorious forms. Atlanta excels at the specialty cake--created by professionals, layered with berries, frosted in buttercream, pooled in chocolate sauce. But lest you think that is all the city has to offer, "Atlanta Classic Desserts" serves up more than forty recipes for pies, cookies, candy, cobblers, puddings, ice cream, and more.

Serving as a restaurant guide as well as a cookbook, "Atlanta Classic Desserts" features photographs, history, musings, and stories to accompany the many mouth-watering recipes. Enjoy!

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
With this inexpensive entry, the author of Savannah Classic Desserts and Charlestown Classic Desserts continues her hospitable war on our waistlines. Atlanta Classic Desserts contains more than its fair share of cakes, cookies, and other after-dinner treats.
Publishers Weekly
In this slim but winning collection, local food writer Reese gives armchair gourmands the grand dessert tour of Atlanta, highlighting notable restaurants and signature desserts. Those expecting Southern standards will find them in classics like Coca Cola Cake, Warm Peach Cobbler (served in a mason jar!) and Peanut Butter Pie (from famous Mary Mac's Tea Room), but these are the exceptions. Reese wisely focuses on rising chefs and establishments that are expanding Atlanta's palate; some dishes, such as Aria's labor-intensive S'mores, are probably best experienced in situ, but a refreshing number of recipes are well within any home cook's capabilities. Taqueria Los Hermanos' Tres Leches Cake relies on a box cake mix and is ready for baking in a matter of minutes; Woodfire Grill's Apple Crisp is a simple and satisfying way to bolster dessert-making self-confidence. A number of recipes are so decadent-like Rathbun's Gooey Toffee Cake and the Fried Oreos that grace the cover-they'll likely inspire non-cooks to give the mixer a spin. Fair warning: though your diners may never have made it down South, they may well experience a spontaneous desire for rocking chairs, front porches and (especially after Bourbon Ice Cream) unseasonable heat.
