Description: A sweet dream come true! Jacques Torres has written a dessert cookbook specially designed for the home cook. Host of the public television series Dessert Circus and executive pastry chef at the world-renowned Le Cirque 2000 restaurant, Jacques Torres offers a mouthwatering array of imaginative desserts that can easily be made in your own kitchen. 

Jacques has taken his incredible scientific knowledge of ingredients and baking and used it to develop foolproof recipes for an assortment of tempting desserts, from the traditional to the whimsical. He makes dessert fun and easy, offering a wide range of tempting recipes that will appeal to child and adult alike. 

For the kids, there are Jacques's Marshmallows, Lollipops, Graham Crackers, and Ice Cream Cones to be made from scratch -- a rainy-day activity that everyone can enjoy. Adults can indulge in an afternoon tea with trays of Scones studded with golden raisins and almonds, strawberry and chocolate Rugelach, and buttery Crumpets. Children and adults can put their heads together and dream up an excuse to bake one of Jacques's head-turning cakes, like Chocolate Decadence, Lemon Upside-Down Cake, or Strawberry Ladyfinger Cake. 

Dessert Circus at Home is filled with delectable dessert ideas for every special occasion. On Mother's Day, treat your mom right with a Raspberry Tart or Strawberry Shortcake; kick off the Fourth of July with Banana Creme Pie; usher in the New Year with Caramel-Dipped Fruit and Chocolate Truffles; and for birthdays and graduations, impress the guest of honor with Sunflower Ice Cream Cake and Jacques's Favorite Cheesecake. Feel like you just don't have room to indulge? Then choose from the tempting array of dessert recipes that are practically good for you, like Exotic Mint Soup, Wine Poached Pears, and Peach Saute.
