From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. Pastry expert and baking instructor Shoyer proves that readers don't need to deprive themselves of sweets just to keep kosher in this outstanding collection for all seasons and faiths. Bakers with access to parve (kosher) versions of cream, cream cheese, and other key ingredients (tips and name brands are provided) will find a litany of recipes for Passover, Seder, and other special occasions. Yes, there are Babkas, Rugelach, Hamentaschen, and Challah, but there is also a rich Chocolate Mousse Truffle Cake, easy and impressive Cinnamon Palmiers, classic French Macarons, a Pistachio and Raspberry Tart and the ingenious Scones au Chocolate, virtually all of which are within the reach of most bakers and budgets. Grouped by effort, from quick desserts requiring only one-bowl (Amaretto Cookies, for instance) to more advanced dishes like Coconut Cake with Lime Filling, Shoyer gives bakers plenty of options for all tastes with copious instructions and photos throughout. Simple but crucial tips like keeping a few sticks of margarine in the freezer so it'll behave more like cold butter when it's time to make pie or tart dough ensure dishes turn out the way they were intended, making this a can't-miss collection of classics. Photos.

The book itself is lovely, the recipes are artful and the directions are very clear and detailed enough that even a beginning baker should not have trouble! All in all - I (and my family) are very happy with this purchase!
I started with the easiest of desserts, the chocolate mousse...it takes maybe 15 minutes if you're average and the family went nuts over it. Next I tried the tea cake on the cover...another winner! Then I got brave and tried her Challah recipe which is now my standard and although I am proudly adept at a six braid Challah, her instructions for the double braid are much easier and gets more oohs and ahhs. Then I got REALLY brave and tried a more complicated cake that uses chocolate meringue for the layers...what a surprise...the crunchy meringue softens with the chocolate icing and melts in your mouth...this will be a Passover dessert for sure!
No matter what your level, this book is for you if your looking for parve desserts. Keep in mind if you're looking only for non-dairy desserts the ingredients call for a lot of non-dairy topping, margarine and soy substitutes for dairy like tofu cream cheese or sour cream. I thought these ingredients would cheapen the flavor...I was wrong.
I find this to be a great book for baking...period, an amazing book for kosher bakers!
Highly recommended for yourself or a present for a new bride or someone new to kosher cooking.
You can find different level of recepies from very easy to more complicate, all are easy to do.
The reading of the recepies is Pleasant and enjoyable. I am not great in the kitchen but I have to say everything I made come out really good!I love the choccolate mousse, it seemed difficult to do but in reality it is very easy and now one of my favorite.
