About this title


Features 150 dessert recipes from the popular San Francisco restaurant, including cakes, pies, tarts, cookies, ice creams, and puddings

From Library Journal:

Luchetti is the talented pastry chef of Stars, Jeremiah Tower's celebrated restaurant in San Francisco. She emphasizes flavor above all, with a fondness for reinterpreting American and European classic desserts--Hazelnut Creme Caramel, Pumpkin Steamed Pudding, Pistachio Pithiviers. Her creations are homey though certainly not unsophisticated, her presentations inviting rather than artsy. Recipe instructions are explicit, and many desserts are quite simple to prepare. Highly recommended.
