Editorial Reviews

"Full-color photographs highlight the simple beauty of Gordon''s creations. . . . This thoroughly delightful collection is a must-have for baking and confectionary enthusiasts everywhere."

-Publishers Weekly, starred review

 

"Gorgeous."

-O, The Oprah Magazine

 

"Valerie Gordon''s Sweet is full of sumptuous recipes - quince and pear pie, tiramisu trifle, Champagne cake - that are sure to entice the sweet tooth in everyone."

-Los Angeles Magazine

 

"As a cookbook, Sweet sits at the intersection of art and education, with enough know-how to be a solid baking reference, but far too beautiful to be called a textbook."

-Serious Eats

 

"A gorgeous book full of decadent desserts I will most definitely be eating."

-Design*Sponge
