These are the Books of Cafe Gratitude.
My students are the most pleased with these two books. Why? The luscious desserts. Lemon Meringe Pie, so firm and beautiful, it looks “Real.” I always laugh when I hear that. “It looks real.” It’s amazing to me how for so long, so many of us bought the lie of chemicalized food-like substances and ingredients as “real food.” The diseases that have flourished in this most privileged of countries, including obesity, give evidence to the lie of “real food.”
But I digress…
These books show the way to make beautiful, luxurious desserts. I learned about Irish Moss and what it can do, both for desserts and sauces. I’ll be doing a blog on Irish Moss (a sea vegetable) within the next month, as a Spotlight Ingredient.
