How a book should be written!, 4 April 2009
Davids first book Essence was like a breathe of fresh air - intelligently written, recipes that inspired, ingredients thoughtfully used and pictures to match. Dessert steps up to this mark then takes one step further! the chapters are broken down sensibly and cover everything you could think of and more. Everything is possible to make in a domestic kitchen and no real special equipment is needed. You can tell David is not a pastry chef - it breaks away from the normal traditional desserts every chef covers and considers taste, textures and good local produce. An inspiration to chefs like myself and anyone who likes to cook at home! What's next and when!
