Get Dessert Comes First (Hardcover) by Lori Baltazar and other baking books online and at Fully Booked bookstore branches in the Philippines.
Dessert Comes First is the celebrated blog of Philippine food writer Lori Baltazar, and is now the title of her first book. It is a love story about food told in a distinctive combination of essays, old and new, and recipes, savory and sweet. In addition, profiles of ten of the Philippines' most eminent chefs and home bakers contribute a crisp dynamic to this body of work.
The book is also the author's homage to sweet. In her inimitable way of celebrating the craft of baking and her love for dessert, she shares some of her very own recipes, including the recipe for her famed cheesecake, kept secret until now.
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.
