Celebrate the luscious fruits of every season with this stunning collection of heirloom-quality recipes for pies, cakes, tarts, ice cream, preserves, and other sweet treats. Summer's wild raspberries become Raspberry Pink Peppercorn Sorbet, ruby red rhubarb is roasted to adorn a pavlova, juicy apricots and berries are baked into galettes with saffron sugar, and winter's bright citrus fruits shine in Blood Orange Donuts and Tangerine Cream Pie. Yossy Arefi’s recipes showcase what's fresh and vibrant any time of year by enhancing the enticing sweetness of fruits with bold flavors like rose and orange flower water inspired by her Iranian heritage, bittersweet chocolate and cacao nibs, and whole-grain flours like rye and spelt. Accompanied by gorgeous, evocative photography, Sweeter off the Vine is a must-have for aspiring bakers and home cooks of all abilities.
From the Hardcover edition.
“Sweeter off the Vine” by Yossy Arefi a cook book that is dedicated to fruit desserts. I really like that the recipes are broken up by each season. This gives the baker a chance to look what is available during the time of year they are wanting to make something. I think this makes things extremely helpful. I don’t know how many times I wanted to make something to find out that I can’t get specific fruits or vegetables because of the year.
The pictures are amazing. It is extremely helpful to have great pictures that go along with the recipes that one is trying to use. This also makes one extremely hungry and wanting to eat everything. For someone who has to follow a recipe when they bake, I found this book to be fantastic. This is definitely my new go to book to create yummy desserts.
