DESSERT Cookbook of the Month Suggestions

oakjoan | Apr 9, 200812:32 PM     84

For a couple of months now, we regular COTM participants have been discussing the idea of having a Dessert Cookbook of the Month. Quite often, people suggest these books, but the majority usually decides that a dessert book for a whole month, especially outside the holiday season, is too specialized for the main cookbook choice.

Sooo, I’m introducing the new “Dessert Cookbook of the Month”! It will run for TWO months instead of just one, alongside the regular thread for COTM.

We’ve had several suggestions already: PURE DESSERT, a new book by Alice Medrich, the owner of the former sweet shop called Cocolat, in Berkeley, CA; several books by David Lebovitz and BREAKFAST, LUNCH AND TEA by Rose Carannini owner of the Rose Bakery in Paris. There are problems with the Rose Bakery book, as it’s difficult to find and isn’t in many libraries. Further, Lebovitz’ book ROOM FOR DESSERT is now out of print, and the copies I’ve been able to find were on Amazon and quite pricy. He does, however, have a wonderful website with recipes, as well as other books.

I think the only dessert cookbooks we’ve had in the past are Dorie Greenspan’s Baking From My Home to Yours and Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook.

I’d love to hear what suggestions you guys will make, and to see if there’s enough interest to really get this 2 month-long Dessert Cookbook Topic going! I’ll let it run for a couple of weeks and then announce and post a voting thread.
