An early fall cobbler with blackberries bubbling in their juice beneath a golden cream biscuit. A crunchy oatmeal crisp made with midsummer's nectarines and raspberries. Or a comforting pear bread pudding to soften a harsh winter's day. Simple, scrumptious, cherished -- these heritage desserts featuring local fruit are thankfully experiencing a long-due revival. In Rustic Fruit Desserts, each season's bounty inspires unique ways to showcase the distinct flavor combinations that appear fleetingly. James Beard Award-winning chef Corey Schreiber teams up with Julie Richardson, owner of Portland's Baker & Spice, to showcase the freshest fruit available amidst a repertoire of satisfying old-timey fruit desserts, including crumbles, crisps, buckles, and pies. Whether you're searching for the perfect ending to a sit-down dinner party or a delicious sweet to wrap up any night of the week, these broadly appealing and easy-to-prepare classics will become family favorites. - Jacket flap.

Opinion

From Library Staff

A collection of simple and satisfying recipes for crisps, slumps, buckles, grunts, and other old-timey desserts by a beloved Portland bakery owner in collaboration with one of the region's top chefs. I want to eat the cover!

I love fruit dessert above all others. This book is divided by season so you can bake with fruit all year round. Bonus points for bringing back the pandowdy and the slump!

I haven't had dinner yet so it's the WRONG time to be reading about, "... summer's berries raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and boysenberries figure singly in cobblers or combined into a layered trifle. Autumn brings juicy pears and rich pumpkins for pandowdies and custards ..." from the lengthy book review for this amazing looking book. The cover is soooo tantalizing I'm salivating all over the keyboard as I type.
