Product description

Award-winning pastry chef Jenny McCoy presents her imaginative repertoire of desserts inspired by seasonality and flavor. This dessert cookbook features more than 100 delectable recipes enhanced by the flavor that only fresh fruit provides. An array of pies and tarts; cakes, cookies, and confections; ice cream and sorbet; and sweet drinks with a modernist twist are included in this user-friendly primer, which is divided into four sections showcasing each season's bounty. For the fall and winter holidays, there are enticing treats such as a Chestnut-Chocolate Layer Cake and Pumpkin-Maple Ice Cream. Strawberry-Thyme Lemonade is perfect in springtime. Summer is time for a refreshing Watermelon Granita with Lime Cream and Peach Hand Pies. Master recipes and a seasonal harvest calendar are useful components. The artful photographs of these desserts illustrate attractive presentations for sharing such luscious sweets.
