A Life in Desserts: Sherry Yard's new book
We tasted a few lovely bites at Spago yesterday from Sherry Yard's new book Desserts by the Yard. There was a light, citrusy cheesecake, divine tiny chocolate sablé cookies, lemon curd bars, rich chocolate mousse spoons and paté des fruits, which are always my favorites. People were buying a dozen books at a time, and the line to have Sherry personally sign them was quite long. There's also a yummy calendar based on the book which includes 12 of the recipes from her life of dessert-making, from Spago to Chinois and time spent in Napa, Vienna and Manhattan. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to write your autobiography through desserts?
