The Desserts of New York is the realization of Yasmin Newman's dream to eat her way around New York. In this hybrid recipe-book-meets-travel-journal, Yasmin's mission takes her through the city's vibrant neighborhoods, where a plethora of colorful characters and quintessential New York moments add life to her experience. The 50 recipes that accompany tales of Yasmin's adventure are takes on the city's best desserts – from the number one-voted old-school Jewish chocolate babka to Dominque Ansel's cult favorite, the cronut.
Chapters cover Doughnuts, Cookies and Bars; Pastries, Buns and Bites; Cakes, Pies and Puddings; and Created and Plated, and within each chapter readers are offered a guide to the top places to find these types of desserts, along with a brief description of the venue. Think Eat Pray Love meets edgy New York, and prepare yourself for one deliciously cool ride.
