Classic Home Desserts: A Treasury of Heirloom and Contemporary Recipes

Richard Sax


“More a narrative of the pleasures of genuine dessert-making than whatever but written.”—M.F.K. Fisher

For this huge assortment, Richard Sax committed greater than a decade to looking for and perfecting greater than 350 of the world’s so much loved muffins, “the ones made at domestic by means of moms and grandmothers instead of by way of expert pastry chefs.” each simple homespun vintage is right here: cobblers and crisps, truffles and cookies, puddings and soufflés, pies and pastries, ice lotions and sauces—nineteen chapters in all.
 
Sax’s types are justifiably mythical between comprehensive bakers: conventional Two-Berry Buckle • Chocolate Cloud Cake • Bon Ton’s New Orleans Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce • Reuben’s mythical Apple Pancake • Best-Ever Pumpkin Pie • Schrafft’s scorching Fudge Sauce. Sidebars with each recipe—profiles of chefs, enticing reminiscences of favourite truffles, quotations from hundreds and hundreds of literary works, and excerpts from outdated recipes—show how chocolates are indelibly woven into the feel of our lives.
