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.Read more ›
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!
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!!
