Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Grisewood, owner of Australia's Manna from Heaven Bakery, shares primarily desserts, such as the delightful Raspberry and Passionfruit Cake, Dark Chocolate and Pistachio Cake, and Lemon Shortbread. She also presents such creations as Warm Goat's Cheese Salad with Blueberry Dressing, Fish Soup with Saffron and Garlicky Sauce, and Ricotta and Basil Cannelloni. Despite the imaginative desserts and colorful pages, the high price reserves this only for readers with a particular interest in Grisewood's bakery or Australian food in general.
