Yossy Arefi writes a regular column for Food52 and has been featured in Bon Appetit, Sauveur and Modern Farmer. In spite of her fame, I had not heard of her until I received this book.
The recipes are divided by season which is very handy. If you like cooking with ingredients as they are the freshest and in season, this is the cookbook for the dessert lover. The photos are out of this world beautiful. Look at page 125 – it seems you could wipe the water drops off the fruit, it’s that vivid.
For summer you have apricot and berry galette with saffron sugar,coconut cream fool with raspberries and chocolate celebration cake with fresh raspberry buttercream. Are you drooling? I am. Winter offers up blood orange old-fashioned donuts among other delectable sweeties. While the recipes are a bit ambitious for me, they wouldn’t be a problem for an experienced baker.
I received this cookbook from the Blogging for Books program. All opinions, nice and otherwise, are all my own.
