Sweet Simplicity
Jacques Pépin's Fruit Desserts

by Jacques Pépin


Sweet Simplicity

Dessert has been the most maligned and, at the same time, the most revered course on the modern menu. "Sweet, rich, and decadent" have been translated in recent diet-crazed years to "fattening, caloric, and overindulgent." Who better to rescue dessert from doom than American's favorite French chef, Jacques Pépin?

In this wonderful collection of fruit desserts, Jacques reminds us that the last course can be healthy, light, and easy to prepare, while still being heavenly to eat. Over 115 simple and inspiring recipes, including Blackberries in Creamy Honey Sauce, classic Baked Apple Tart, Top-Crust Cherry Pie, and Raspberry Trifle with Nectarine Sauce are all endowed with Jacques's sophisticated sensibility, resulting in the ease and elegance that are his culinary signatures.


About the Author:

Jacques Pépin is the author of sixteen previous cookbooks and the host of seven public television cooking series. In addition to the Jacques Pépin signature series of Bourgeat copper cookware, he has a line of specialty food products with Napa Valley Kitchens.
