80 new imaginative and indulgent creations for a traditional favorite.

The newest buzz on the culinary scene is a traditional favorite: the irresistibly tasty Whoopie Pie. This all-embracing cookbook covers all things Whoopie, from the ultimate classic marshmallow version to new, imaginative, and indulgent creations.

Renowned pastry chef and restaurant owner Viola Goren has come up with 80 exciting and easy-to-follow recipes, both savory and sweet. Imagine a yummy Nutella-filled pie, with its rich hazelnut and chocolate flavor melting in your mouth. Or one made with a peanutty Snickers’ bar, dreamy vanilla cream, or delicious dulce de leche! For something a little different, whip up a fruity delight, including Cherry, Blueberry, or Apple and Calvados Whoopies.

Sophisticated palates will love Goren’s unique savory Whoopies, perfect to enjoy as an entrée, side dish, or snack. They feature such mouthwatering fillings as smoked salmon and chives; spinach and walnuts; cheddar cheese and olives; and sun-dried tomato and basil. And, because no treat is more festive than a Whoopie Pie, there’s an entire chapter devoted to holidays and celebrations, including seasonal delicacies for a birthday, a gluten-free Passover recipe, yummy Christmas gingerbread, and much more.

Plus, Goren serves up trade secrets, chef’s tricks, and cooking tips. She covers all the essentials, from equipment to techniques and even to decorating ideas—so even novice bakers have no excuse!

With so many tempting choices, there’s sure to be a Whoopie Pie that will tickle everyone’s fancy.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Boldly proclaiming the Whoopie Pie as "the latest classic craze sweeping the culinary world," former pastry chef Goren offers up over 80 mix-and-match recipes for fanatics. Though her pies resemble the classic French macaron in appearance, they have the consistency of cakes, with bakers dropping the batter onto cookie sheets in dollops. Using this method, Goren offers a wealth of applications both sweet (Apple & Calvados, Chocolate Coconut, and Snickers & Vanilla Cream) and savory (Beet, Mushroom & Goat Cheese, and Zucchini with Feta Cheese). The sweet options are fairly predictable, while the more outlandish savory offerings (incorporating ingredients like anchovies or featuring cornbread with a whipped cream cheese filling) seem to do little besides increasing the recipe count. Considering that there are already seven other books dedicated to Whoopie Pies (four of which were published this year), the deck is seemingly stacked against Goren. In addition, the book's lack of a recipe list—with only a table of contents based on theme and an index based on ingredient—will frustrate readers trying to find particular recipes. (Oct.)
