Desserts From My Kitchen

From the Creator of Raincoast Crisps®

Lesley Stowe, famous as the creator of Raincoast Crisps, is passionate about desserts and hopes to revive the art of home-crafted sweets. Crammed with over 100 recipes for cakes, show-stopping dinner party finales, frozen desserts, cookies, bars, tarts, holiday favourites, and sauces, this cookbook will give even the inexperienced host a chance to share the fun and delight of making a delectable dessert.

When Stowe returned to Vancouver from cooking school in Paris, she noticed that the delicate and sophisticated desserts she loved weren’t available in her hometown. She set out to rectify that by opening her own catering and fine food store. Soon she was supplying such delectable desserts as Death By Chocolate to Vancouver’s top restaurants.

With her signature sense of style, Stowe shows us how to create elegant desserts easily and to serve them with flair even on a busy schedule. Pavlova with Honey Basil Nectarines and Almond Cream, Chocolate Date Pecan Cake with Cointreau Crème Anglaise, and Lemon Clove Cookies are just a few of her mouthwatering treats. Desserts From My Kitchen is certain to become the “go to” cookbook for jaw-dropping dinner finales.
