Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"To say the book is gorgeous is an understatement. But beauty is nothing without brains, and this book packs serious smarts. The seasonal, fruit-forward focus and elegant photography are reminiscent of Nigel Slater's "Ripe", but the authoritative, yet encouraging tone is all her own...Consider yourself lucky the book is divided into seasons, otherwise you'd be spoilt for choice. There are ice pops, roulades, pies, cakes, and breads, all delivered in a way that embolden the home cook." ~Serious Eats

Jenny McCoy’s Desserts for Every Season couldn’t be more aptly named, Jenny has been baking and creating recipes inspired by what is ripe and available for as long as she can remember.” ~Bakepedia.com

“A baking and pastry authority who has consulted on dessert menus for Tom Colicchio’s NYC Craft restaurant and Emeril Lagasse’s establishment, Jenny McCoy dishes up a big serving of inspiration for seasonal sweets...Winter, Spring, and summer have equally enticing offerings.” ~The Post and Courier

“If you’re looking to update your go-to dessert recipes to something more elegant, modern, and season, you are going to want to pick up a copy. There’s nothing run of the mill here—the recipes are unique and impressive but sill uncomplicated. As far as design goes, the whole book has a classy, subdued aesthetic that I very much like…This will definitely be a book that I turn to for every future dinner party I plan.” ~Katieatthekitchendoor.com

"The dishes we make for dessert are determined not only by tradition, but also by seasonality. A guide to sweet treats to carry you from the winter holidays through spring, summer and fall, Jenny McCoy’s Desserts for Every Season is the perfect holiday gift." ~Findyourcraving.com

Desserts for Every Season...many original and truly seasonally inspired recipes. I would probably make every recipe...all are unique.” ~Chocolateandcroissants.blogspot

“Jenny McCoy hits the sweet spot—literally and figuratively. Her desserts make the best use of seasonal ingredients and seem to be just what you want to be eating when the weather changes…The book’s recipes will help you create something special and delicious, but won’t have you sugar-streaked and edgy by the end of the day. Her recipes are homey, but still special. The recipes’ range and ease speak to the joy of this book—flexibility to respond to your own pantry inspirations and a casual elegance that will please…” ~Appetiteforbooks.wordpress
