Continued: Classic Home Desserts

There are headnotes and sidebars as scrumptious as the recipes. Anecdotal recollections, excerpts from letters and cookery books of times gone by, and Sax's personal connection with every recipe color every page. Classic Home Desserts is the rare cookbook that is as welcome beside your reading chair as it is in your kitchen.

GIVE THIS BOOK TO: History buffs, brainy bakers, and anyone with a deep love of good cookbooks.—Robin Bashinsky
