October 14 is Dessert Day
The reliable folks at Days of the Year assure me that Dessert Day is a legitimate thing and not something they've just made up. They suggest that one celebrate Dessert Day by indulging in dessert--revisit your favourites or explore new flavours.
There are many different types of dessert--pies, cakes, puddings. Go crazy.
These are some of the many books at Toronto Public Library that will make this Dessert Day the best ever!
Bakeland: Nordic Treats Inspired by Nature by Marit Hovland
Norwegian graphic designer and photographer Hovland makes beautiful desserts that are inspired by her love of the natural world. Her instagram account, Borrow My Eyes, shares her photographs of nature and her stunning baked goods. Everything in the table of contents looks appealing but I'm especially drawn to licorice macarons with raspberry filling and sesame-ginger buns with lemon icing.
French Desserts by Hillary Davis
Cakes, tarts, crepes and more are featured in this collection of recipes.
Both sweet and savory recipes explore new and creative flavour combinations.
Usmani shares the Pakistani desserts she loved in her childhood.
Sugar and Spice: Sweets and Treats from Around the World by Gaitri Pagrach-Chandra
This book shares desserts from all over the world.
Sweet Middle East: Classic Recipes from Baklava to Fig Ice Cream by Anissa Helou
Cookies, cakes, puddings and custards from the Middle East. Recipes include walnut pancakes, saffron-caramel wafers and Syrian semolina and nut cake.
There are lots of other books available at Toronto Public Library but writing this post has made me too hungry to continue listing them.
Enjoy Dessert Day.
