“So many chefs talk about recipes that can be made at home simply, easily, and successfully, but John Barricelli delivers. His sweets are just the kind you want to bake for family and friends, and just the kind that even beginning bakers can turn out. You will make these recipes year-round, and you’ll make them over and over again.”
“The Seasonal Baker is a dessert book you want to hug. It will actually become part of your kitchen (flour- and chocolate-stained) and not your library. John’s pastry is always straightforward delicious. And if you don't make his Banana–Chocolate Chip Kugelhopf, you are simply missing out on one of the things that makes life worth getting out of bed for.”
--MATT LEWIS & RENATO POLIAFITO
"I enjoyed getting to know John and his family through his heartfelt mix of savory and sweet recipes. He takes care to keep instructions clear and approachable; perfect for the home baker. I can't wait to try some of these with my family."
“My introduction to John was over his Lemon Daisy Cake at Martha Stewart’s studio. It was so light and airy and at the same time tart and sweet. This perfect dessert is a reflection of John’s background—a unique combination of family and professional cooking and baking, with his philosophy of using the best ingredients, that results in no-fail recipes. From simple Poached Pineapple or Grilled Peaches to Ratatouille Hand Pies, there is something here for everyone. I’m going to start with the Gingerbread-Pineapple Upside-Down Cake.”

Recipes include; muffins, quick breads, buns, breakfast treats, fruit, cookies and bars, fruit pies and tarts, cupcakes and cakes, crisps, cobblers and fruit spoon desserts, frozen fruit desserts, tarts, quiches, pastas, focaccia and pizza on the grill. There is a good index and a list of sources
The recipes are not the simplest, but not terribly complicated either. The cobblers are the easiest to make and they turn out as delightful desserts. Our family enjoyed all of them and also the winter blueberry streusel pie and the baked ziti with summer vegetables - which although it calls for summer vegetables is a bit heavy for hot weather, but just right for a cooler day.
This is a good book to add to a cookbook collection, especially for those who desire some different baking and dessert recipes.
He uses corn syrup in some recipes and in all the gelatos and sorbets so I won't try them, in the daisy cake he uses 16 eggs and 5 yolks (15 yolks, 10 whites and 6 eggs) and I thinks they're "a bit" too much for me, I've tried the Italian wedding cake, which is not Italian but it's delicious, and Eleonore's plum cake which is a keeper, I'll try the baked ziti too, even if with a different type of pasta.
