Desserts! Pastries! Oh my!
The photographs in the book are amazing. I could spend hours just looking at the photographs. Everything looks like it could be served at a fine restaurant to finish off an equally fabulous meal.
Once I stopped salivating over the images and looked at the recipes themselves, I realized that you don’t need to be a professional chef to create these amazing desserts. Claes Karlsson uses basic ingredients, many of which are probably in your pantry already. The instructions are clear enough that novices can get good results. Gourmet desserts don’t have to be difficult of expensive to prepare.
Here are a few that look especially good to me:
- Milk Chocolate and Coconut Cake
- Almond and Fig Tart
- Mango Sorbet
- Chocolate Truffle
- Chocolate Mousse with Caramelized Almonds
The recipes in this book will help you create desserts that look and taste fantastic!
