Caprial has teamed up with Melissa Carey, the pastry chef at Caprial's Bistro, to create a book devoted entirely to comforting, no-nonsense desserts that beg to be made time and again. This satisfying and truly essential collection includes classic and contemporary recipes for cakes, pies, and tarts; custards and puddings; ice creams, gelati, and sorbets; cookies; breakfast pastries; and special-occasion desserts.

Like a culinary school class, Caprial's Desserts focuses on the basic process pastry chefs practice daily-using master recipes and techniques as a springboard for developing creative new desserts. Building on the 50 master recipes, each chapter reveals how they can be finessed to create one exciting variation after another. Along the way, clear step-by-step photographs put you alongside Caprial and Melissa as they share their secrets for making extraordinary pie dough, working wonders with an ice cream machine, creating beautiful layer cakes, perfecting the delicate art of puff pastry, and numerous other essentials of the sweet kitchen.
