Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Serendipity is a one-of-a-kind ice cream shop/caf /boutique on New York City's Upper East Side, as popular today as when it opened 50 years ago. It has always attracted a mix of celebrities, as well as families with kids, and Bruce, one of the three original owners, reminisces about the early days (when Andy Warhol would pay his check with a piece of rejected artwork) and memorable moments (Greta Garbo stopped in to browse one day but left as soon as she was recognized). The caf serves a mix of savory items, including foot-long hot dogs and omelets with caviar, but its most famous creation by far is Frozen Hot Chocolate. The recipes here are all for its indulgent desserts. For area libraries and larger baking collections. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
