Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An early fall cobbler with blackberries bubbling in their juice beneath a golden cream biscuit. A crunchy oatmeal crisp made with mid-summer's nectarines and raspberries. Or a comforting pear bread pudding to soften a harsh winter's day. Simple, scrumptious, cherished-these heritage desserts featuring local fruit are thankfully experiencing a long-due revival.

In Rustic Fruit Desserts, each season's bounty inspires unique ways to showcase the distinct flavor combinations that appear fleetingly. James Beard Award--winning chef Cory Schreiber teams up with Julie Richardson, owner of Portland's Baker & Spice, to showcase the freshest fruit available amidst a repertoire of satisfying old-timey fruit desserts, including crumbles, crisps, buckles, and pies.

Whether you're searching for the perfect ending to a sit-down dinner party or a delicious sweet to wrap up any night of the week, these broadly appealing and easy-to-prepare classics will become family favorites.

Review:

"[A] must-have new little cookbook....The genius of this work lies in Schreiber's playful fruit combinations and Richardson's mastery of doughs and spices to complement them." Gourmet Magazine

Review:

"Rustic Fruit Desserts embodies the modern wisdom about how to cook delicious food: make it fresh, local, and seasonal. As someone who's always loved desserts with fruit and, who, like Julie, has New England roots, I also applaud the book's mouthwatering taxonomy, which distinguishes between grunts, slumps, buckles, crisps, cobblers, and pandowdies." Sara Moulton, host of Sara's Weeknight Meals and executive chef of Gourmet

Review:

"Finally, all of my favorite kinds of dessert in one place. From warm berry buckles and crumbly crisps to boozy bread pudding, Rustic Fruit Desserts will help you bake your way through the best of the bounty." David Lebovitz, author of The Sweet Life in Paris and The Perfect Scoop

This recipe book is filled with fabulous dessert ideas that will make your stomach growl with hunger. I have made several of them to take with me to parties and potlucks - and they have been complete hits! The recipes themselves are straightforward and don't take any special equipment or know-how. I also love how the book is arranged by which fruits are available and at their peak during each season - so you know exactly which desserts will be best to serve, depending on the time of year. I recommend this cookbook to anyone, but particularly anyone cooking in the NW.

even a year later, this is the first cookbook I reach for when I want to make something seasonal and wonderful as a dessert. The gingered pear and raspberry pandowdy is the most-requested dish in our house! It actually makes me excited to watch the seasons turn because I know that this book will get me inspired about what to cook and how to entertain.
