I've owned this book for many years. Some pages are actually beginning to fall out because it is the book I turn to when I need a "foolproof" dessert recipe. It has never failed me. Simple to difficult, brownies to wine jelly, it's all there and always delicious. The historical notes are fascinating and are fun to talk about when putting dessert on the table. The major coup lay in obtaining some recipes from the long-gone Claremont Diner in New Jersey! Making those dishes made me so nostalgic, particularly that coconut cream pie. The photography is beautiful. I only wish there had been more. It was a real loss to the culinary world when Sax died so prematurely. This is a fine gift for anyone from the novice to the experienced baker.
