Editorial Reviews

The Viennese have always been known for their luscious array of delectable pastries and desserts -- from delicate fruit tarts to lovingly old-fashioned strudels to sinfully rich tortes. To duplicate authentically such heavenly concoctions has always been considered near to impossible. Georgina Gronner, in her book Viennese Desserts Made Easy, shows that there is no mystery to baking perfectly delicious desserts that are sure to raise a chorus of oohs and aahs from guests. Her clear and concise recipes require a minimum of ingredients and are made with new procedures and illustrated techniques that minimize kitchen preparation time. You will learn how to make a 10-minute chocolate cake, create a variety of petits fours from a handful of ingredients, bake for a party of 50 with ease, and produce irresistible coffee cakes and breads quickly and professionally. Born into a Viennese family of pastry lovers, Ms. Gronner shares her secrets for streamlining old baking methods and creating new ones with tips on advance preparation, substitution of ingredients, storing, freezing, serving, and decorating pastries to look as good as they taste. From the ultimate sacher torte to the traditional poppy seed strudel, this cookbook's collection of classic Viennese dessert recipes goes unsurpassed. There's Chocolate Chestnut Marzipan Delight, Walnut and Poppy Seed Crescents, Ischler Cookies, and Linzer Torte, along with an assortment of rich toppings and fillings of buttercream, jam, marzipan, and chocolate -- a true dessert lover's delight! Georgina Gronner, born and raised in Vienna, Austria, is an accomplished cook and popular cooking instructor, specializing in desserts.

I was able to enjoy a childhood full of my grandma Georgina's delicious desserts and I can personally attest that these recipes are every bit as good as they sound.

this is the best book ever, too bad, they must have sold all the used ones for five dollars, because I wanted one more, and now they are much more.
