Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Not ones to keep secrets, Rosen, the grandson of Junior's founder, and Allen ("Junior's Cheesecake Cookbook") start with the recipe that has been the backbone of Junior's success, the New York Cheesecake. They present a nice collection of recipes accompanied by historical and anecdotal sidebars that do not distract. If there are any surprises here it is the inclusion of a small group of soda fountain desserts, including egg creams, freezes, shakes, malts, and sundaes. The bulk of the recipes are mostly standards of the restaurant: tall cakes, down-homey pies, cupcakes, and tarts and cookies. The authors even reach into the archives of Junior's first menu and include a recipe for Nesselrode Whipped Cream Pie, a rum custard pie, largely absent from contemporary menus.
Verdict There is a definite New York influence here, seen in egg creams, rugelach, and desserts inspired by black-and-white cookies; however, with a troubleshooting section and baking hints along the way, this book could easily be used as a resource for standard desserts. The recipes are too good to passup"." —"Library Journal"
