October 22nd, 2010

By Fany Gerson

Ten Speed Press, $30

This transporting book documents pastry chef Fany Gerson’s quest for the recipes of her homeland’s traditional dulces. She visits artisans, shops, museums, libraries, and markets across Mexico and talks to acquaintances and strangers alike to learn the secrets of authentic Chocolate-Corn Porridge, Cream Cheese Morning Rolls, and Tres Leches Cake, among others. It’s a deliciously well-researched journey through the sweet side of Mexico.
