The title, Desserts to Die for, by Marcel Desaulniers says it all. This cookbook is filled with so many wonderful and amazing recipes. I'm not sure how many times I have read through it, but each time I do I am inspired to get out in the kitchen and bring his words to life. Not to say that each time I am inspired to do so, it actually gets done, but I am inspired nonetheless. I have made a few things out of this book, and each time it isn't a disappointment. He gives very clear and detailed instructions on how to accomplish these amazing desserts, and even though they can be a long time in the making, the end result never disappoints. The author even breaks down the recipes into possible steps that can be made a day or two ahead of the date that the dessert is needed just in case you want to spread the process over a few days. The recommended ingredients are easily found, and unless you just really don't like to spend time in the kitchen creating incredible desserts, then I suggest you at least check for this book at your local library and give it a try. If nothing else, simply reading through the pages and looking at the amazing pictures will be satisfying in itself.
