Description: Fantasies of chocolate, rum and glace fruits ... spongecakes that owe their zephyr rising not to a chemical baking powder but to froth-beaten egg whites by the bowlful ... short cakes that melt on the tongue ... the waltz notwithstanding, these are the real glories of Vienna. Even the French admit that Vienna is the cake capital of the world. 

And here, a marvelous cook who is also a talented writer presents all the wonderful confections -- from Lemon Roll a la Hussars to world-famous Sachertorte, from strudels to cream puffs to meringues -- in recipes that invite the reader to "cook along," step-by-precise-step, anticipating pitfalls and practically guaranteeing success. 

With thorough discussion of ingredients and utensils, and with many witty historical and culinary asides, The Art Viennese Pastry cookbook is for every cook, gourmet, hostess and cookbook collector.
