Book Description

16 April 2013
A tour of the city s best dessert-makers, complete with recipes. The Big Apple is a city of sweets. Think about all the classic desserts that were made famous here: cheesecake, black-and-white cookies, the Broadway milkshake. Visitors from around the world make pilgrimages to bastions of butter and flour such as Magnolia, Ferrara, and City Bakery. And today there is a renaissance of young sugar-minded artisans who are crafting exquisite confections with fair-trade chocolate, organic gelato, and sea-salt caramel many coming out of Brooklyn, and selling from street trucks. Paging through New York Sweets is like walking through a candy shop, where the design and packaging is often as beautiful as the desserts themselves. The book also functions as an inspired gastronomic tour guide one skewed toward plenty of breaks for sweets. Each chapter walks through a different neighborhood, giving a sense of the melting pot of flavors that can be found only in New York from apple strudel and baklava to turron and zabaglione. The recipes reveal the secret techniques behind such delights as Cherry Brownies (Baked), Crack Pie (Milk Bar), Icebox Pie (Billy s), Macarons (Payard), and Crème Brûlée Doughnuts (Doughnut Plant). As in other realms of culture, so many trends start in New York. This book gives the scoop on all the treats that everyone is buzzing about.

This book is definitely for the sweet toothed and takes you on a gastronomic candy tour around the five boroughs of New York. The photography is amazing, and you will almost reach out to taste the goodies on display. The descriptions are vivid and will tempt the reader to visit the wide range of bakeries and goody stores. A light hearted fun book, and one for the coffee table. No one will be able to resist browsing through this colourful, cheerful book.

Can't wait to return to NYC again to look for and experience some of the intriguing places and goodies described in this wonderful book. This was purchased as a "souvenir" after my most recent trip to the big city, a city that's always sooo much fun...now, it'll be even better!

3.0 out of 5 stars Book returned 18 May 2013

I misread the description. I thought it was a book of recipes from NY bakeries/sweet shops. It is more of a guide to the sweet shops and bakeries in NY. There are only a few recipes in it. I returned it.
