Luscious heritage desserts

Sweet Home: Over 100 Heritage Recipes and Ideas for Preserving Family Recipes by Rebecca Miller Ffrench is the perfect cookbook for the long, hot summer ahead.
Rebecca is a former Contributing Writer for Condé Nast’s Cookie magazine. She comes from a family of bakers, and includes 75 recipes from relatives and friends.
I was attracted to the luscious fresh fruit desserts that showcase summer produce perfectly. These treats would be luscious served alone or with cold ice cream.
The book is illustrated beautifully, with pictures of tempting concoctions that are unique and elegant enough for company, but easy enough for most home bakers to attempt.
Ffrench (yes, that is how Rebecca spells her name) also writes about preserving your family’s history through recipes and food.
This warm and very usable book would make a great shower gift for any avid cook or foodie!
