    Someone (Bob Dorough, but you may be more familiar with the De La Soul version) once sang that three is the magic number and this book proves that statement to be true. It's packed with recipes for cakes, breads, biscuits and desserts that only use three ingredients each!

    Three-ingredient baking is so popular right now with YouTube videos racking up millions of views and this book helps you make the most of it. Each recipe only has three ingredients - there are not even any seasonings or hidden extras.

    Suitable for bakers of all levels, every treat is fast, convenient and easy to make and among the 100 recipes are an almost-instant Christmas cake, banana bread baked in a slow cooker, muffins made from ginger beer and bread conjured from ice cream (!).

    "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.""

    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.
