Classic Home Desserts: A Treasury of Heirloom and Contemporary Recipes

Richard Sax


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

For this enormous assortment, Richard Sax committed greater than a decade to looking for and perfecting greater than 350 of the world’s such a lot cherished muffins, “the ones made at domestic by means of moms and grandmothers instead of by means of specialist pastry chefs.” each easy homespun vintage is the following: cobblers and crisps, muffins and cookies, puddings and soufflés, pies and pastries, ice lotions and sauces—nineteen chapters in all.
 
Sax’s models are justifiably mythical between complete 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 sizzling Fudge Sauce. Sidebars with each recipe—profiles of chefs, attractive memories of favourite cakes, quotations from 1000's of literary works, and excerpts from previous recipes—show how candies are indelibly woven into the feel of our lives.
