The Dessert Bible is the definitive dessert cookbook for the North American home cook. Christopher Kimball reviews equipment from mixers to rolling pins, and discusses which are the best ingredients regarding types of flour, sugar, baking chocolate, and more. He explains basic techniques like beating and folding in egg whites, working with pie dough, and folding flour into batters. The recipes include layer cakes, pies, tarts, cookies, brownies, puddings, mousses, ice cream, sorbets, fruit desserts, sauces, and frostings. In addition, Kimball offers a section on favourite restaurant desserts from around the country that can be made at home. Every recipe has been tested, re-tested, and revised from scratch to ensure that these are truly the ultimate and simplest versions. The Cooks Bible (Little, Brown, 1996) and The Yellow Farmhouse Cookbook (Little, Brown, 199 have sold more than 100,000 copies. Christopher Kimball will have his own cooking show beginning in Fall 2000.
