    "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.""

    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.
