Hillary Davis celebrates her favorite French desserts, plus regional specialties with an ode to Italy, Spain, Germany, and Switzerland. Her focus is on creating homey comfort food that French people make for themselves. The book is divided into chapters focusing on specific types of desserts, with recipes for quick fixes and those with longer preparation times. You will find cakes, cookies, tarts, candies, puff pastry, waffles, crêpes, and more. Recipes include such treats as Giant Breakand-Share Cookie, Tart Lime Yogurt Loaf Cake, Medieval Custard Tart in a Clove-Scented Crust, and Fresh Orange Sorbet Champagne Coupe.
