This fantastic little book is by Patricia Helding, the owner of the Fat Witch Bakery in New York - and I would just love to go there!
In the meantime I will content myself with baking the gorgeous bars and treats from these pages. Full of chocolate, sugar and butter - it is no wonder this shop is so popular!!

Yet another Eastern Mediterranean flavoured cookbook to add to my collection!
This one is simply written, with easy to follow recipes accompanied by gorgeous full colour photo's. Typical of this style of cuisine, the dishes are full of fresh flavours and delicious spices - I love it!
I just received this book yesterday in the post and spent last night reverently going through it page by page.
While I'm fond enough of eating dessert, I don't really have a large repertoire of desserts that I make myself - that will now change!
David Lebovitz seriously knows his stuff and this book is crammed with gorgeous sweet dishes to tempt everybody. It is set out with an informative section on ingredients and equipment in the beginning, followed by the recipes divided into types of dessert - cakes, pies, cookies,frozen deserts etc - making it very simple to find the sort...

I came to hear of this book by downloading the podcasts of Lynne Rossetto Kasper's entertaining and informative Public Radio Broadcasters show.
It is full of great recipes that are quick to put together and taste fresh and satisfying. There are cooking tips and hints about variations both in cooking or ingredients and loads of information about buying produce and/or cooking implements. It would be a good book to give as a gift to a new cook, but is just as useful for the more experienced cook who may be looking for new inspiration.
I was thrilled to bits to finally get my hands on this beautiful book. I live in Australia, so I haven't been to the famous restaurant/cafe "Ottolenghi", but I am deeply in love with their food since I bought the cookbook of the same name. When I heard there was another one out by Yottam Ottolenghi I knew I had to have it.
I am not disappointed. This is a gorgeous book. The gold embossed, white cover is slightly padded so it is a pleasure to pick up and hold, the photos of the food are as beautifully styled and lit...
This is a new edition of Claudia's classic book from 1968. With some recipes revisited and others needing no change it is still one of the definitive works on Middle Eastern food and holds a valued place in my collection!
