Description


Dessert is an extraordinary book from two-Michelin-starred chef, David Everitt-Matthias. Following on from his critically acclaimed debut, Essence, this stunning second book explores the world, and pushes the boundaries, of the dessert chef's art. Each of the book's five main chapters focuses on a specific family of ingredients: Chocolate and Nut; Fruit; Vegetable; Roots, Pods, Seeds and Bark; and Wild. There is also a section outlining the essentials and basics from which his craft begins and several pages of Petits Fours - the perfect finishing touch.
With no specific pastry chef training, David approaches the idea of dessert free from doctrine and received wisdom. A great originator and writer of recipes - someone who is able to instruct with precision and passion - he has created a book that is singular in its content, style and technique. Each recipe in Dessert can be deconstructed into its component parts, enabling individual elements from within - such as a pure, ice cream, sabayon, sorbet or cream - to be enjoyed on their own or alongside other desserts.
