Charlie Trotter's Desserts

Charlie Trotter's Desserts Cookbook from the acclaimed Chicago Restaurant is a stunning cookbook that retailed originally for $50 ... and it's no wonder. This cookbook has some of the most memorable desserts we have seen inside a cookbook -- along with some full size photos of the prepared dish. We are staring down a Frozen Espresso Ice Cream Bomb with Vanilla Rum Anglaise Emulsion. It's gorgeous. We are sure it tastes as good as it looks. We also spot an amazing Three-Point Peach Tart with Peach Compote and Preserved Ginger. If you love desserts, this is a highly recommended cookbook and we are selling it at a steal because it has a tiny tear in the jacket.
