Demolition Desserts


In Demolition Desserts, Elizabeth presents her dessert creations, from the cookies, brownies, and cupcakes beloved by Citizen Cake regulars to the plated desserts that made her one of the most dynamic culinary talents of her generation. Elizabeth begins with a chapter devoted to chocolate chip cookies, building from a straight-up version to the more-is-more Chocolate Chip Mania. Provocatively titled compositions like A Chocolate Tart Named Desire, S'More A Palooza, and Gingerbread Bauhaus capture Elizabeth at the top of her art, breaking down classic desserts and reconstructing them flavor by flavor. Elizabeth has adapted even her most elaborate desserts for the home kitchen, and each dessert is equipped with a detailed make-ahead timeline and a minimalist version for those pressed for time. Stunning color photographs illustrate every main recipe in the book, and manga-style animation--starring Elizabeth's pastry-obsessed alter ego, Caremi--empower home cooks to go forth boldly and bake.   c. 2007 Ten Speed Press
