“[A] wheat-, gluten-, dairy-, and processed-sugar free collection of raw confections to die for. Most of Desserts’ recipes are fast, easy, and have no more than six ingredients, often fewer. It almost feels like cheating to be able to create tasty, intricate, and stylish treats without going through chef training.”
“Phyo's second book focuses on the sweeter side of raw with 85 recipes (Almond Frangipane Kream and Raspberry Ganache Fudge Cake, anyone?) that will have your sweet tooth clamoring for more.”
