Who says the winter months have to be bleak and barren? Author Tammy Donroe sees this season as an opportunity to stay inside, fire up the oven, and produce decadent desserts from the bounty of wholesome winter ingredients. Wintersweet encourages readers to make use of fresh, local ingredients for warming seasonal desserts. While summer farmers' markets are always overflowing with ripe produce, there's plenty to be had from November to March: squashes and pumpkins, parsnips and carrots, apples, pears, citrus of all types, and feel-good ingredients like nuts, cheese, and chocolate.The fresh and rustic recipes in Wintersweet push the envelope of traditional winter desserts like pumpkin or apple pies with such delicacies as Pear Cranberry Clafouti, Spicy Prune Cake with Penuche Frosting, Tangelo Sorbet, and Goat Cheese Cake with Dried Cherry Compote. Each chapter is devoted to different ingredients, ranging from Persimmons, Pomegranates, and Cranberries to Citrus, Cheese, and Dried Fruits, allowing readers to experiment with new and exciting ingredients for complex and delicious flavors. They taste even better when they can be found near your own backyard Donroe provides resources for finding the best local farmers' markets and agricultural centres near you. Perfect for holiday gatherings or to warm the belly on a cold night, Wintersweet is the perfect dessert companion to make the year's coldest season a bit more festive.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "The seasonally minded cook will delight in the ingenuity of this tome dedicated to the dark days of winter. Just as the greenmarket inventory guides savory cooking, so can it be the basis for dessert, Inman argues, even in Northeast climes. There are, of course, apples aplenty here (cooked down into pie, and applesauce, but also tucked into cheddar turnovers). Less predictable fruits such as persimmon, quince, and Asian pear make an appearance, while cranberries find their way into a cobbler, and citrus is the basis for such concoctions as Rosemary Meyer Lemon Tart and Grapefruit Custard. Root vegetables are hearty meal-enders with fulfilling flavor, and Inman warms the kitchen and the belly by baking up Parsnip Spice Cupcakes with Maple Frosting, Chocolate Beet Whoopie Pies, and Chai-Spiced Squash Pie. Finally, of course, there are seasonless standbys such as pecan pie, chocolate chip cheesecake bars, and rice pudding. Inman's breakdown of ingredients is informative yet easily digested, leaving all the more room for ice cream and cookies. Photos. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
