* *   Reviewed by Mary Ann Smyth

Pastry Chef Kate Zuckerman creates the epitome of pastries for the restaurant Chanterelle in New York City. The entire menu of this world-class eatery changes every four weeks, necessitating that Zuckerman come up with four new desserts every month. A challenge, no doubt. But one she meets with enthusiasm and skill.

With this new pastry cookbook, Zuckerman lays out her recipes but with a twist. She carefully describes each and every step of each recipe, sharing the years of experience she has acquired in her career. She is 'one of the most acclaimed pastry chefs of her generation, having been named one of the ten best in America by Pastry Art & Design in 2005.'

Who better to start you on a path to making your own top drawer pastries? Where to start should be your only question. Name a type of pastry and Zuckerman has covered it. Gear up your kitchen with all you need to produce your very own delicious pastries. Let The Sweet Life be your pastry bible. Go for it.

I've got my eye on the Goat Cheesecake Enrobed with Hazelnut Brittle. But Double Chocolate and Cherry Cookies would definitely make my day. Or Brioche Pudding with Truffle Honey. Wow! Roasted Apple Beignets with Cinnamon Sugar. And Five-Spice Chocolate Truffles to die for.

Each and every recipe has been fine-tuned by this very talented chef. Zuckerman loves the full-flavored tastes and passes her love on to her readers. The Sweet Life: Desserts from Chanterelle is not only a beautiful book but one that is bound to become time-worn as you use it again and again.
