Sweet enough / Alison Roman ; photographs by Chris Bernabeo.

Roman, Alison, (author.).


"A simple, stylish cookbook full of desserts that come together faster than you can eat them-from the New York Times bestselling author of Dining In and Nothing Fancy. Casual, effortless, chic: These are not words you'd use to describe most desserts. But before Alison Roman made recipes so perfect that they go by one name-The Cookie, The Pasta, The Lemon Cake-she was a restaurant pastry chef who spent most of her time learning to make things the hard way. She studied flavor, technique, precision...and distilled her knowledge to pare all that down into treats that get you the most deliciousness with the least amount of fuss. So the desserts you want to make right away-whether you're craving cookies, cakes, or other sweet stuff-you can make right away. Simple but sublime, Alison shows you how make sweets with her trademark casualness, like how to turn jam into a dessert (swirled into ice cream, folded into easy cake batter, spread onto a rough pastry dough). Make simple cakes that dirty only one bowl. Keep one crust recipe in your back pocket and turn it into any pie you want. Recipes like Salted Lemon Pie, Hot Buttered Rum Cake, and Toasted Rice Pudding make your sweetest dream come true in an instant. In Sweet Enough, Alison has written the book for people who think they don't have the time or skill to pull off dessert"-- Provided by publisher.

    Food writer Roman (Nothing Fancy), who parted ways with the New York Times after her criticism of Marie Kondo and Chrissy Teigen, has returned with a new cookbook focused on baking. Roman is known for her viral recipes and millennial hipster aesthetic, which come through vividly in this cookbook's writing style and photography. Whether or not readers appreciate her vibe, they will likely be drawn in by the interesting and approachable recipes. Pies, tarts, and galettes comprise the first and longest chapter and include both sweet and savory offerings, from the caramelized maple tart to the creamy cauliflower galette; many call for Roman's recipe for "The Only Pie Crust." Next up are cakes, such as her famous raspberry ricotta cake, which first appeared in Bon Appétit. There are also chapters on "things called pudding," "frozen things," cookies (mostly shortbread variations), fruit, breakfast, and staples. While the instructions are clear, some readers might wish the light-orange font of the ingredient lists were easier to read. VERDICT Those who like a more casual, carefree approach to baking will appreciate this, where the aim is for a delicious, not perfect, result.—Melissa DeWild
