Just got the book and the cover makes me want to eat it. YUM-O! I have all of his books and have been a active raw foodist so getting this book has been worth the wait. I have made the chocolate chip cookies before from the Everyday raw book which my picky son loves so much he keeps eating all of it! Matthew seems to write from the heart and soul of being a raw food vegan. In this book, he writes that his goal is to show how restaurant-style desserts are easily made with little time. For a raw foodist, this book may make you crave desserts 24 hrs, 7 days a week. For the person that is looking for some raw vegan desserts that tastes good, makes you feel good and not that much of a hassle, this is the book for you. The only issue is for someone that has nut allergies, the amount of cashew/mac flour that is used will be a problem.

This book frustrates me to no end. I have never made a raw dessert and it may stay that way even though I now own this book. Why? Well for one, I found editing errors, for example, pg. 128 for hazelnut gelato states "The absence of coconut meat makes this slightly lighter than our ice cream recipes." The first ingredient listed is....1/2 cup coconut meat. This is an issue for me because the ingredients for these desserts are super expensive so I really don't want to discover after using $50 in ingredients that the recipe is wrong. The author lists no editing corrections on a Web page (many cookbook authors do this).

I also found that similar recipes may only list very helpful tips and steps in one of the versions and it's not always the first version. Also sometimes the author instructs you purely to "dehydrate" with no instructions as to time/temp/or desired end result, and sometimes he is very specific about dehydrating at a certain temp for a very specific amount of time. This is not helpful without adding what the desired end result is because all dehydrators are different. He should list an estimate for each recipe (time & temp) and desired result when it has been dehydrated appropriately.

Also helpful would be an ingredient guide. Several raw dessert cookbook authors use different terminology so he should be clear about his. For example, some say coconut oil and butter are the same one is just liquified, while other cite separate products. And missing is the size of a pan/dish needed for many recipes. This is essential because if I don't have the correct pan for an item and need to buy one I need to know what the volume is of the recipe.

I just received the book and it is beyond gorgeous!!
The cover alone, makes me want to drop everything and make one of those pies for myself!!
(And I do mean for MYSELF!)

I love all of Matthew's books, but I'm a dessert-freak, so this one is perfect for me!

The recipes are easy to understand and there aren't a ton of ingredients required, like in some books.
And the photographs are absolutely beautiful!

I LOVE this book!!

This is a very cool book. I have three of Kenny's books and this one is as well written, innovative and beautifully illustrated as the other three. It also has a good index, something sorely lacking in most vegan/raw cookbooks.

But, like his other cookbooks, I find his reliance on young Thai coconut meat both intriguing and very frustrating. He uses Thai coconuts...a lot. Seriously. Unless you have easy access to these coconuts, pretty much write off the chapter on puddings, flans and custards and the chapter on ice cream and frozen treats, as well as dessert crepes, and some glazes. ( If you do have access to this product, I envy your ability to try everything in the book!)

That being said, there are plenty of wonderfully decadent, beautiful desserts to be enjoyed that do not require Thai coconuts: Coconut, yes, either in dry, powdered form or coconut oil, but those are easily attainable for me: Chocolate Walnut Tart (to die for; one of our Christmas desserts), Maple Cheesecake with Walnut Crust, Apple Cobbler with Almond Crumble (of course, I couldn't serve it with the vanilla ice cream as he suggested because it required...yup, young Thai coconut meat...), and Midnight Fudge Brownies are ones I have served to rave reviews. The Chocolate-Covered Pistachio Biscotti and the Cacao Mint Cremes (sans the fresh mint leaves) were just awesome, too.

So, I do recommend this book: Only four stars instead of five based solely on the Thai coconuts, or the lack thereof!

Matthew takes raw food to a level of elegance and sophistication that few have. The book is gloriously photographed. The food is appealing and doable by anyone who's serious about raw foods. I'm so grateful that someone finally took raw food from the back-room of health food stores and made it mainstream. This is true cuisine, fit for company and the most special events. Bravo, Matthew! You are an inspiration.

The best of all desserts care not only delicious but nutritious as well! In "Everyday Raw Desserts", Matthew Kenney draws upon his years of experience and expertise as a professional chef, caterer and food writer, to compile a superbly illustrated, 144-page compendium of innovative dessert recipes that showcase both traditional favorites and creatively innovative new ones suited to the palate of raw food enthusiasts. Seventy-five recipes cover all manner of treats ranging from cakes, pies, cookies and puddings, to flans, brownies, candies, and ice cream. Each recipe is thoroughly 'kitchen cook friendly', making "Everyday Raw Desserts" a unique and highly prized addition to personal and community library cookbook collections.
