Review quote

The most notable contenders to the cupcake throne are macarons, whoopie pies, and, my personal favorite: ice pops. The 27-degree temps right now notwithstanding, I'm ready to crack open Fany Gerson's "Paletas." Gerson's "My Sweet Mexico" was one of my favorite cookbooks of 2010, and "Paletas" looks to be equally wonderful, with recipes for ice pops in flavors ranging from coconut and mango-chile to horchata-strawberry and dulce de leche. Gerson plans to open a shop in New York serving paletas, ice cream, sorbets, and aguas frescas in late spring. Publishers Weekly Spring 2011 Announcements: Top 10 Cookbooks, 1/24/11 Lickably luscious, "Paletas" lets you freeze your own authentic icy Mexican treats, from the spiced (with chiles) to the spiked (with tequila) and everything in between! David Lebovitz, author of "Ready for Dessert," " The Sweet Life in Paris," and "The Perfect Scoop" Fany Gerson has followed up the triumph of "My Sweet Mexico" with "Paletas," an engagingly written look at Mexico s frozen treats and refreshing drinks.No one is better suited to introduce us to this delicious branch of Mexican culinary tradition that so deserves to be better known. Nick Malgieri, author of "BAKE!: Essential Techniques for Perfect Baking""
