Dessert Comes First is the celebrated blog of food writer Lori Baltazar, and now, the title of her first book. A distinctive combination of essays, chef profiles, and recipes, the book showcases the author's ability to tell her food stories through words and pictures. A select number of the blog's most popular posts have also been included and given new life. In addition, memoirs and other new material written exclusively for the book reveal a more personal side of the author, highlighted by photos of her most cherished childhood keepsakes. Contributing a crisp dynamic to this body of work are profiles of ten of the Philippines' most notable chefs and home bakers, captured in their working element.
Created carefully and thoughtfully, Dessert Comes First is a pleasure, engaging all the senses with its thick matte paper, fluid layout, and riveting photography, all bound together by solid, intelligent food writing. This is an offering that fans of the blog and food lovers will feast on.
