Desserts are the ultimate culinary luxury, delightful confections to pamper the tastebuds and allow free reign to the cook's imagination. Whether treating yourself to a rich chocolate mousse on an evening in alone, enjoying a citrus sorbet on a hot summer's day, keeping winter at bay with a hot fruit pudding or impressing guests with a spectacular meringue creation there is the right dessert for all occasions. This book opens with a short introduction covering the main ingredients, techniques and equipment needed to make the recipes, with advice on buying, storage and preparation. The recipes provide all the dessert dishes you could need, whether a rich vanilla ice-cream or fruit summer pudding to lemon meringue or syrup sponge. From simple sweets to elaborate show-stoppers, there is a delicious dessert for every occasion, a quick-and-easy scoop of homemade ice cream, a healthy weekday sweet, or a dazzling confection for a grand dinner party. Choose from classics, such as profiteroles, lemon meringue pie and apple crumble, or experiment with international dishes like tiramisu or brandy-soaked borracho cake from Spain. There are also specially developed healthy low-fat recipes that are packed with taste. Glorious photographs inspire cooks of every level of expertise and show how the finished dish should look, and nutritional notes detail energy values as well as cholesterol, fat, carbohydrate and sugar content.
