Publishers Text

Deep Chocolate Terrine in fifteen minutes... Chai-Spiced Cheesecake in half an hour... Not impossible, but easy--and inspired! As an executive pastry chef, Food Network host, author, and mom, Gale Gand knows how hard it is to maintain an active schedule and still find time for home cooking. In Gale Gand's Short & Sweet, she shows readers how to make quick confections that deliver full, complex flavor--all with eight ingredients or less.


Here are such classics as carrot cake, shortbread, and pudding, but with new flavor accents, like fresh berries, orange zest, even fragrant lavender. Other dishes are speedy innovations from Gale's restaurant kitchen, including Banana Bisque and Roasted Peaches with Thyme and Ricotta. There are even a handful of kid-friendly recipes, such as Cookieburgers and Peanut Butter Worms, perfect for getting busy parents and their little ones together in the kitchen.


Proving that simple can be synonymous with delicious and exciting, Gale Gand's Short & Sweet is a truly indispensable dessert book.
