Warm spices, fresh fruits, chocolate and hazelnuts. For the first time, the wonderfully intense flavors of the Mediterranean are captured in one cookbook, with desserts specifically adapted to the American palate. Far from simply listing recipes, pastry chef Cindy Mushet explores the techniques and intricacies of creating desserts—from flavor combinations to textural contrast—to evoke the distinct tastes of Italy, France, Greece, North Africa, Spain, Turkey and the Middle East.

Featuring dozens of clear and uncomplicated recipes from Goat Cheese and Ricotta Tart to Lemon Verbena Sorbet, this book makes readers feel like the author is at their elbow, offering tips and suggestions as they cook. A consummate teacher, Mushet includes user-friendly headnotes and sidebars elaborating on each recipe's origins and the produce and ingredients integral to the Mediterranean kitchen, as well as offering thoughtful advice on how to select and use them. An extensive resource guide provides sources for hard-to-find specialty ingredients, produce, spices, wine and baking supplies.

As American cooks prepare more and more Mediterranean-inspired menus, this book is the perfect companion to help them finish each meal with a sweet ending that conveys the very essence of this unique region.
