Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"While there are plenty of dessert books, this one collects not only the standards, but explores variations and less widely known desserts. . . . you will want to either give this as a gift to the chef in your life, or get a copy for yourself (or both)."
--San Francisco Book Review

"The Golden Book of Desserts provides an outstanding collection suitable for gift-giving or library lending . . . . Busy cooks seeking showy dessert dishes will find this a virtual bible of information."
The Midwest Book Review

Library Journal
Bardi and Lane (coauthors, The Golden Book of Baking) provide your baking secret weapon for this holiday season. With over 250 recipes such as Strawberry Ice Cream Pie and Chocolate Soufflés, you'll have an arsenal of treats to delight family and friends.
