The author of Beach House Baking “uses seasonal fruit in this magnificent book . . . From cakes and pastries to ice cream, popsicles and puddings” (Food Republic).

When we shop at farmers’ markets, we support our local economy and consume food that’s healthier, tastier, and packed with essential nutrients specific to our local environment. In Farm-to-Table Desserts, chef Lei demonstrates how baking with locally sourced, organic ingredients is so satisfying that it will quickly become an easy and delicious habit.

With more than eighty sweet recipes divided by season, Farm-to-Table Desserts shows readers how to create simple desserts using fresh and local ingredients at their prime. With Lei’s instruction, home cooks will see how easy it is to bake fresh year-round. Recipes include some of Lei’s favorites:
  • Stone peach cobbler
  • Fig jam
  • Sweet corn panna cotta
  • Strawberry hand pie
  • Sweet potato cake
  • Blood orange pot de crème
