    "Dessert" is an extraordinary book from two-Michelin-starred chef, David Everitt-Matthias. Following on from his critically acclaimed debut, "Essence," this stunning second book explores the world, and pushes the boundaries, of the dessert chef's art. Each of the book's five main chapters focuses on a specific family of ingredients: Chocolate and Nut; Fruit; Vegetable; Roots, Pods, Seeds and Bark; and Wild. There is also a section outlining the essentials and basics from which his craft begins and several pages of Petits Fours - the perfect finishing touch.
    With no specific pastry chef training, David approaches the idea of dessert free from doctrine and received wisdom. A great originator and writer of recipes - someone who is able to instruct with precision and passion - he has created a book that is singular in its content, style and technique. Each recipe in "Dessert" can be deconstructed into its component parts, enabling individual elements from within - such as a pure, ice cream, sabayon, sorbet or cream - to be enjoyed on their own or alongside other desserts.""

    Everyone wants to know: How does Dominique do it? Dominique Ansel is the creator of the Cronut pastry, the croissant-doughnut hybrid that has taken the world by storm. But he's no one-hit wonder. Classically trained in Paris, leader of Daniel Boulud's three-Michelin-starred pastry kitchen in New York and now the proprietor of New York's highest-rated bakery, Dominique has become a modern-day Willy Wonka: the creator of wildly innovative, extraordinarily delicious and unbelievably popular desserts. Presented here are some of Dominique's most coveted recipes, organised by skill level and catering to both amateur and professional bakers. Beginners can conquer the Chocolate Pecan Cookies with the molten chocolate centre; more experienced bakers will learn the secrets to the exquisite caramelised crust of this Cannele de Bordeaux; and the most adventurous will tackle The At-Home Cronut. In this, his first cookbook, Dominique reveals not only the secrets to his hit desserts but he describes the stories of inspiration behind each of them. The most important element in any dish is not a particular brand of chocolate or a type of salt but rather the spark of imagination. At heart, Dominique Ansel is a book about innovation: how a cook can transform flour, sugar and butter into memories that last a lifetime; and how anyone, from any field, can try to add a little magic to their work.

    A unique way of seeing and thinking and an attention to detail are what shape Chef Janice Wong's inventive desserts - creations applauded by some of the world's most celebrated chefs; from French chocolatier-patissier Pierre Herme to Spanish chef-restaurateurs Juan Mari and Elena Arzak. Through this book, the creative mind behind 2am:dessertbar invites you to enter her world. It is a world where beauty is everything, where no detail is too small to appreciate. This is not an ordinary cookbook. It is an exploration of the mind and senses; of perceptions and emotions. The chapters - Origins of Taste, Colours of Taste, Textures of Taste and Memories of Taste - explore the inspirations behind each of her creations; be it the unique, natural flavour of an ingredient; a distinct hue that evokes an emotion; an unexpected texture that jolts the senses; or a nostalgic taste that allows the mind to wander back to childhood days. These seemingly disparate sources of inspiration and the creations that stem from them are all threaded by a commonality; a pursuit for perfection in imperfection, and an appreciation of imperfection in perfection. Welcome to Janice Wong's artistic, gastronomic world of flawless imperfection and flawed perfection.

    Whether it's a homemade strawberry shortcake in summer or a chef's complex medley of sweets, dessert is the perfect ending to a meal. Most of us, even those who seldom indulge, have a favourite dessert. After all, sweet is one of the basic flavours and we seem to be hard-wired to like it. Yet while everyone has a taste for sweetness, not every culture enjoys a dessert course at the end of the meal. And desserts as we know them - the light sponge cakes, the ice creams, the steamed plum puddings - are neither as old nor as ubiquitous as many of us believe. Jeri Quinzio traces the history of desserts and the way they, and the course itself, have evolved over time. The story begins before dessert was a separate course - when sweets and savouries were mixed on the table - and concludes in the present, when homely desserts are enjoying a revival, and as molecular gastronomists are creating desserts an alchemist would envy. An indulgent read, for all those with a curious mind and a sweet tooth.

    In Nostalgic Delights, award-winning chocolatier William Curley aims to recreate childhood memories and times gone, taking classic recipes and modernising them with his own, unique creations. Creating top-quality confectionery, cakes and ptisserie is often seen as something only a trained professional can do. However, with ptisserie equipment now easily accessible to all, William hopes to produce a book where the reader can create classics at home and evoke their own nostalgic memories. William's ethos centres around using the best ingredients and techniques available, while making his recipes accessible to the home cook. Some recipes are simple to make with minimal ingredients, such as the Hazelnut Rocher and Bakewell tarts. During the 70s and 80s, the convenience food market boomed, and changed the image of many iconic dishes. William recreates theis decadence once again in many of these recipes, such as a Black Forest Gateau or Blackcurrant Cheesecake. The book also touches on the comfort food that most of us grew up with, whether it be a Jammy Dodger, an Arctic Roll, or a Banana Split - William takes these to a whole other level!
